I am immensely grateful for the support from Help Musicians support, which is affording me the opportunity to create a new body of original music, suitable for licensing to digital content creators for use in sync with visual media. I will be licensing this work through my own website, and with the aid of the business advice sessions, develop legal and marketing strategies for the launch & outreach campaign.
