Do you consider that nowadays there are more or less opportunities for new artists? Why?
In todays pandemic a lot of artists have been hit hard due to not be able to tour and most of our income comes from touring so its been hard.
On the upside @MUSICCARES along with many other creatives have teamed up to create awareness for artists who are struggling in this global pandemic.
