Royalties from the Syncr curated album to be split between the artists involved and Help Musicians

I’m incredibly proud to be collaborating with Help Musicians, a charity that provides essential support for artists and a mental health helpline for people working in the music industry
Singer-songwriter Jay Fynn

Earlier this year Syncr Music put out a call for musicians to submit songs for a special charity album themed around mental health. 

Created to raise money for Help Musicians and awareness of musicians’ mental health, the album features ten songs by ten artists who all wanted to give something back. 

At a time when mental health among musicians is severely impacted by the ongoing cost of living pressures, any contribution to the charity makes a difference to the artists we support. 

Musicians submitted tracks through Syncr’s website and the final ten were chosen by Syncr and a Help Musicians representative.

Some of the musicians involved have previously been supported by Help Musicians. Will Willson (who contributed Crystalline to the compilation) became involved in the project to show gratitude and give something back to the charity after he had been supported in the past.

Over the years, Help Musicians have helped me navigate through several challenging periods as an independent musician — most notably the pandemic. I will always be forever grateful to them
Will Willson

The album is a timely and relevant reminder about the importance of speaking about mental health within the music industry. Singer-songwriter Alice Pisano (Tears Will Set You Free) perhaps said it best: The music industry can be a tough world to navigate. As a musician I can say I regularly struggle with mental health. I’m really grateful to be a part of this project for Help Musicians who do invaluable work in supporting artists.”
