Spotify, AppleMusic, ET AL: Support Touring Musicians NOW.
The current Covid-19 fears have made it impossible for musicians to support themselves through touring. MusiCares is the non-profit branch of the GRAMMY association, and has a system in place for providing financial relief to musicians after an unexpected loss of income. However, the current demand on their resources is understandably overwhelming. The touring branch of the music industry call upon the streaming services, who are not being effected by this crisis, but who depend on these musicians for the profit of their companies, to take action at this time.
