I think it's fair to say we're living in strange times and perhaps now that people are cooped up in their homes music have never been so important. A window to the outside world that can remind us of what we've lost and what we have to look forward to.
Speaking with some people in the past I've struggled to convince them of why music is so important and powerful. Trapped in their homes now they are possibly rethinking that viewpoint and I hope taking comfort and strength from the many recorded works available on Spotify, Apple Music and other streaming platforms. I can't help but find it ironic that a resource that is so important to people right now in lifting their spirits was created by the group of people in society who are in danger of losing everything. I hope when all this is over people outside the industry will again, in their numbers, support live events and buy music products to support the artists who continue to make the world a brighter and more colourful place.
