The music business has taken many hits over the past 20 years, and we are seeing musicians slowly going extinct. There are so many factors that are hurting musicians, and workers in the music business. Back in the 80’s and 90’s, we were investing in music like no tomorrow. So many concerts were happening, and so many Broadway shows were going on. We were really supporting our musicians, and we were helping them in any way we could. But society, has not been investing in musicians, causing certain problems, like financial stability, mental health problems, and making music more of a hobby, than a career. They are put through immense stress and anxiety because it is starting to become a hobby. To help musicians, we need to invest more, help more, and teach them how to deal with certain problems hurting their well-being. We need to just be aware that they are also people, and that they will need breaks, or just need someone to talk to.
