“Music is the emotional life of most people.” — Leonard Cohen


The MISSION behind The MUSIC

Launched on November 19th, 2021 - Musician Lives Matter, founded by Nigel Lawrence - expanded its outreach by obtaining 501(c)(3) status as a Non Profit Organization. 

Our mission is to help the music community all the world to overcome the obstacles of life, by providing Mental and Physical Health needs, career counseling, mentoring, workshops and financial grants/vouchers.

Sometimes it's truly hard to quantify the individual needs of those in the music community, but the overarching vision of MLM - if we could offer a glimpse - would be to find an area where music creatives lack, and get in there to provide relief.

MLM are MUSICIANS...we are keenly equipped and committed to helping other creatives at all levels to navigate a course to achieve the goals of overall "well being" and sustainability - the means to earn a living and to continue pursuing musical exploration. Our network of experience professionals from all genres, are able to guide MLM candidates into the best practices and away from the caveats that we ourselves have experienced on our own journeys.


Since, most musicians are freelancers, they can absolutely benefit from being connected with our partnering medical and health service professionals for reduced-cost-or-free-to-them healthcare and health insurance.

We want to pair creatives with mental health professionals and career counselors to help them overcome the depression and anxiety the come along with being a "starving artist" - a term we'd like to eliminate.

Help to us means, providing assistance with equipment and instruments, affordable or free studio time, and connecting musicians with mentors and collaborators to help them achieve their artist goals.

These are just a few examples of how Musician Lives Matter can assist musicians, providing care not only to them, but also their families - being able to spend time and effort on your craft without having to sacrificing your health or your family's finances to pursuit your gift of music. 

Can you imagine a world without music?

Neither can we.

If the musician is not well, there is no music. When the lights go down, life begins...a life filled with angst, bills, depression and uncertainty.

Help Us To Keep The Music Playing.
