We’d haven’t any music with out unbelievable songwriters who’re largely put within the background and within the shadows, not solely when it comes to promotion however financially as effectively. I believe we may additionally present higher well being take care of musicians and be sure that folks within the music business have entry to issues like remedy, psychological well being care and bodily well being care. Creating security nets that really encourage folks to come back work within the music business as a substitute of being afraid of breaking an arm and never with the ability to do their job anymore.
