Music is one way most people struggling with mental health use as a tool to help navigate through dark times. With #covid19 nearly putting an end to touring the only way musicians get recognized is through word or mouth and social media.

You can also show your support by following their music on streaming platforms such as Spotify, Apple Music or wherever music is streaming.
