As COVID-19 continues to spread, we realize that each week is wildly different from the last. It’s difficult to keep up with the changing protocols, cancelations, closures — and it’s even more difficult to wrap your head around how quickly the virus is spreading and what can be done —
Needless to say, live music is one of many industries financially suffering right now. Touring, a musicians greatest source of income, has been put on hold; festivals are being postponed or canceled entirely; and venues are closing indefinitely, resulting in a loss of work for live audio engineers, instrument technicians, lighting technicians, soundboard operators, tour managers, booking agents and agencies, venue employees, and so many more. This is all happening during peak touring season—spring and summer—and is financially hitting musicians particularly hard.
Every single one of my shows, tours, exhibitions, residencies, work got cancelled… Unfortunately, like a lot of independant innovative artists, I won’t get any support from any institution. But I still would like to continue creating. I will put all my energy in finding new ways to share those creations with you. It is time to be even more inventive! :-) By funding me, you would help me working on:
Donate via PAYPAL: you can donate once or even a small amount (monthly). Any kind of help is welcome. As far as I know, Paypal takes 2.9% + $0.30 USD from the amount that you donate.
Leave me a TIPEEE: Get some rewards! Tipeee is a participative financing platform devoted to Internet content creators. As far as I know, tipeee takes 8% (service cost) + transactions fees from the amount that you donate.
n.b. all platforms take a commission, so if you would like to directly send me some money, ask me for my bank account details via the contact form on this website.

You can find some merch with some geat visual artists on my store: store.j3zz.com
1. Buy records, merch, and attend virtual performances. Musicians and live performers generate most of their income by touring. If you bought tickets to a live performance that has been canceled, check with the artist to see if they’re doing any virtual performances. Consider offering the amount you would have paid for a live performance. Buy records, merch, and anything else the artist offers online.
