UMA Music has partnered with Music for Mental Wealth in support of their mission to provide musicians with a free platform to receive experienced mental health guidance.
The partnership was announced by Lord Mervyn Davies at Music for Mental Wealth’s Christmas concert on December 7th at St Paul’s Church in Covent Garden attended by 300 people, including notable guests such as Jeremy Vine and Duncan Kenworthy OBE.
To celebrate the partnership, MMW and UMA Music have teamed up to kick off the new year with a show at 100 Wardour Street on January 8th, featuring live performances from Richard Morris, Coax and Ashfields.
Music for Mental Wealth (MMW) launched in May 2017 and is dedicated to the prevention and relief of mental illness within the music industry. Their mission is to help prevent musicians from suffering from such problems as anxiety, writer’s block, addictions, self-doubt and stress, by offering a go-to place for artists to learn tips and better prepare themselves for the inevitable highs and lows of the music industry.
The artists performing are:
A nomadic ex-surf instructor, Richard has been crowned “Best Unsigned Male” in the 2017 Best of British Unsigned Music Awards and released a follow up EP “Stay Alive” which hit No.3 in the iTunes Singer-Songwriter charts. He’s also been awarded “BBC Introducing Artist of the Week” receiving airplay on all 40 BBC Stations and sold out shows at his home town venue The Wedgewood Rooms. His gritty and soulful songwriting and crowd pleasing performances have seen him share the stage with the likes of Clean Cut Kid, The Big Moon, Little Comets, Flyte, Skinny Living, Rationale and Guvna B.
COAX are a brand new 4 piece Guitar Pop/Rock band, whose music is the perfect mix of catchy guitar riffs and big Pop choruses.
ASHFIELDS are a 5 piece indie pop band from Nottingham.
The band came together November 2015 and released their first studio EP ‘Home Town’ in January 2016. The same year the band supported All Tvvins, Amber Run, Judas, King No One, Redfaces, Beach Baby, Teleman plus many many more.
