For New York City Musicians and Industry Workers

by Jack Daniel's

Supporting: COVID-19 Fund for Sweet Relief



2020 was a tough year across the board. The music industry was hit particularly hard when live music and touring were put on an indefinite pause. But that never stopped the hustle. Musicians continued their craft and helped us through these difficult times with livestreams, new releases, and every other imaginable creative endeavor to keep the music alive. Join us along with our friends at Jack Daniel's in saying thanks by donating to the Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, a non-profit organization that’s here to directly help artists and those in the music industry stay afloat financially until we’re able to press play again. 

NYC will always rock—let’s roll into 2021 together.

The world has been shocked by the devastating effects of COVID-19. We are aware of the enormous medical and financial burden that COVID-19 is having on the music community and we are actively taking steps to provide assistance where it’s needed most. Due to massive cancellations, artists are struggling to find the means to make ends meet during these unprecedented times.

Sweet Relief is here to provide immediate assistance and we have created this DONOR-DIRECTED FUND with a limited amount of funds available to be used specifically for musicians and music industry workers affected by the Coronavirus. Funds raised will go towards medical expenses, lodging, clothing, food, and other vital living expenses to those impacted due to sickness or loss of work. Those wishing to apply must provide the following:
  • A completed Sweet Relief COVID Application.
  • Supplementary documentation proving that at least 50% of all income comes from working within the music community
  • Proof of cancellations and bookings and/or relevant medical documentation
Please note: You do not need to be sick to be eligible for assistance from our COVID-19 Fund.


Please find the digital Application for Assistance at the bottom of this page. If you have any questions or issues, please email us at

Please download and fill out THIS APPLICATION. Once completed you can mail, fax, or email the completed application. Someone from Sweet Relief will be in touch with you as soon as possible.
