    How Is COVID-19 Affecting Musicians?

    How Is COVID-19 Affecting Musicians?

    The COVID-19 pandemic is a serious issue, and one that I wasn't sure I wanted to talk about publicly, but after seeing how the social distancing is affecting musicians and other professional working creative people I thought we should have a dialogue on what the next few weeks/months could look like for musicians. My wife Tilly and I are discussing the outbreak, and looking at some of the silver linings in this current situation.

Rhett is a truly open, honest music maker, giving an insight to the realities, technics and an inside view to his world.
