Sweet Relief has been helping musicians and music industry workers for several years. Before the global coronavirus pandemic, our mission was to help those that were struggling with illness, disease, and age-related problems by paying medical bills and other vital living expenses. We believe that music makes our lives, and the events in our lives, special and memorable. Because of this, we want to heal and help those that make music possible.
Due to the pandemic, the music industry as we know it shut down completely. We at Sweet Relief realized early on that there was going to be countless musicians and industry workers that would be out of work for the unforeseeable future. Knowing this, we created the COVID-19 Fund to help those that would lose money due to massive cancelations of concerts, festivals, and tours.
Although a large portion of the music industry is still shut down, there are a few ways for musicians to make money during this troubling time. Aron Peak at MUSICNGEAR put together a long list of ways independent musicians can still keep music alive, and receive a paycheck. Click below to read the article!
#SweetSupporters SoundCloud presents “I AM OTHER, Vol. 1”
This began as a search for unsigned original music creators. Now, 10 original tracks have been hand-selected by Pharrell Williams to make this compilation album!
Read on about the artists selected for “I AM OTHER, Vol. 1” and listen to the album below! We're so grateful to be one of the benefiting charities of this amazing project.
The National Independent Venue Association’s (NIVA) mission is to preserve and nurture the ecosystem of independent live music venues and promoters throughout the United States. Without inclusion in the next stimulus bill, 90% of NIVA's independent venues, festivals & promoters say they will be forced to close their doors forever. Congress will be voting THIS MONTH, so help is needed NOW. Go to www.SaveOurStages.com to send a letter to Congress. The letter is pre-written, just enter your contact info and submit!

"I have a lot of friends in the industry affected by the impact of Covid-19 due to the shutdown of basically the entire industry. Venues and live entertainment will most certainly be among the last to reopen... if they have the means to do so. Think about the impact live music has made on not only your life, but the enrichment of the overall community. Hope to see ya at a show soon." - Jessica, Sore Eyes Design Studio
