The Help Musicians' support will allow me the time and resources to work on my music production skills by increasing the range of tools I have access to and produce a new body of work in the form of my second album, after releasing my self-produced debut album in 2019. It also allows me to work on a release strategy through music videos, behind the scenes videos and other digital content.
