Music is therapy. It helps us through everything in life: the good, the bad, and the ugly (and it’s cheaper than a shrink). Why not give back to musicians once in a while? A minuscule percentage of performers make the bulk of the money in the music industry. Most musicians are just trying to get by, and they need our help.
Sweet Relief Musicians Fund provides financial assistance to all types of musicians who are struggling to make ends meet while facing illness, disability, or age-related problems. The organization has a ton of supporters, from Beyoncé to Yoko Ono, NSYNC to Incubus, and we’re proud to support them as part of our Ticketfly Causes initiative.
You can help too! Sweet Relief just released their third CD, Sweet Relief III: Pennies from Heaven, to raise money for musicians. The compilation features songs from Ben Harper, She and Him, Jackson Browne, and many more inspiring artists. Support Sweet Relief and order the compilation on iTunes or Amazon now.
“Sweet Relief has been helping musicians for years, and has helped some whom I am very much indebted to for enriching my life. I am very happy to take part in this CD project, and for the chance to support Sweet Relief’s very soulful work.” – Jackson Browne
