Especially if you’re an artist and planned on making a living with music.

Breakout tours were cancelled, local scenes obliterated and plans were postponed. But, somehow you made it through.

So, congratulations on getting through this challenging time. We’re hopeful that 2021 is going to be much, much better.

The good news is that you probably had a few opportunities to hunker down and take time to work on your music making skills.

Perhaps you learned some new songwriting techniques, an advanced theory concept, maybe you wrote an album and learned how to promote your music online without live shows.

2021 is full of new possibilities and uncharted territory. Yes—there are still unknowns, obstacles and challenges. But, you’re stronger now and you’re ready to take on this world on your own.

Before we completely forget about this year, let’s take a look back at all the ways we learned, adapted, and survived in 2020.
