Stories From Home

Since the end of March, musicians around the world have seen their careers upended, as performance and touring plans have been cancelled and venues have been forced to close. With Stories From Home, artists provide a unique perspective on the pandemic experience from a musician’s point of view - through words, video and music. Every week, a new artist will share their story, along with an audio or video sample of a recent project, and a link to purchase their music so that you can support their work. Check back each week for a new entry, and be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram for new posts.

From new projects, new music and new albums to financial challenges, creative hurdles and mental health, Stories From Home helps musicians tell their story. The good, the bad and the hard reality.
