A LIFELINE FOR MANAGERS
4/1/21

The Music Managers Forum (MMF) in the U.K. has opened round four of its ReBuild Fund, which provides emergency support to music management businesses that have been adversely affected by COVID-19 and excluded from Government assistance packages. The new round has been made possible thanks to further donations from PPL, the BRIT Awards and Hipgnosis Songs.

MMF launched ReBuild after research revealed a double whammy of reported cash losses for music managers of £5.6m in May, combined with the inability of sole traders and limited companies to access the Self Employment Income Support Scheme (SEISS). So far, the fund has provided targeted grants to 77 music management businesses who help guide the careers of more than 400 artists, songwriters, producers and DJs. Recipients have also received expert-led sessions in group resilience and financial planning.

“Despite the hope of returning to live music this summer, many music managers continue to grapple with the twin shocks of a pandemic and Brexit making the road to a full recovery a long one,” Annabella Coldrick, Chief Executive of the MMF, said. “ReBuild has been essential for many of these managers' survival and with this fourth round of funding, we’ll be able to spread that support even wider.”

Administered by charity Help Musicians, the fund is also backed by previous donations from Spotify, Glastry, Everybody’s, One Fifteen Management, East City Management and Grumpy Old Management.

Featured Video
Caroline Jones, "Come In (But Don't Make Yourself Comfortable"
Mailboat's gifted guitarist and singer/songwriter has been bubbling under for a while, writing with the likes of Zac Brown, touring with The Eagles (among other icons) and recording a song written for her by none other than Jimmy Buffett. She was just getting started, as this rollicking jam amply demonstrates. Jones brings the sass of '90s country-pop into the present, and her fiery riffs are just as stinging as the dismissal she hands the clueless dude in this playful video. Shoot, there's even line dancing!
