John Lennon sang "Imagine there's no Heaven, It's easy if you try." Now "Imagine there's no music, It's happening before our eyes." A recent study showed more than a third of musicians are giving up on the business. A survey of 2,000 members of the Musicians’ Union found that 34% are considering abandoning the industry completely, because of the financial difficulties they have faced during the pandemic. Almost half has already found work outside their industry, and 70% are unable to do more than a quarter of what they did before the pandemic started. The Musicians’ Union report also comes with a stark warning that 87 percent of musicians will face serious financial hardship this autumn and winter. Another survey found that 64% of 560 musicians were thinking of leaving the profession and 41% reported having no further bookings. We all consume so much music on a daily basis, yet the humble musician is struggling to make a living.
I love music, singing, performing and writing songs, but who knows what the future holds for any of us. What I would like to say is a BIG THANK YOU! Thank You! For purchasing my music, buying products or merchandise from my website. Again, I can't Thank You! Enough and I can't tell you what a difference you make in my life.. YOU are the one that makes music possible.
Since you’re here... I have a small favour to ask, support musicians by their buying music. Every contribution, however big or small, makes a real difference to their future and the future of music. Just 'Imagine if there's no music!" Please let me know what you think about this.....
If you would like to support me and my music you can buy me a coffee here Thank You
