Our friends at MusiCares® make it their business to assist music industry professionals in times of need, and right now is undoubtedly such a time for many. From live sound engineers with postponed gigs, to home & commercial studios with cancelled sessions, to musicians whose alternative sources of income – the restaurant industry, for example – have been put completely on hold, we know a lot of you out there are going through some hard times right now.
Here is a statement from their website:
In recent weeks, COVID-19 has devastated our music community, leaving thousands of music creators and professionals without work and an uncertain future.
But we have the power to help.
The Recording Academy® and its affiliated charitable foundation MusiCares® have established the COVID-19 Relief Fund to help our peers in the music community affected by the Coronavirus pandemic.
While the Recording Academy is best known for Music’s Biggest Night, the GRAMMY Awards Telecast, we serve the music community year round, by providing emergency aid through MusiCares, to the advocacy work we do to protect musicians’ rights.
Please join us to help keep the music community alive and thriving, giving it as much as it gives us.
