Starter pack to increase mental wellbeing among music makers
Record Union wants to create a healthier music climate. It is our belief that every artist should be able to make music and feel good doing it. This is why we, in an attempt to lower the barriers, have developed The Wellness Starter Pack - a toolbox for wellbeing, created with music makers in mind.
The Wellness Starter Pack is a collection of videos and articles that, with the help of industry experts, explore the impact that sleep, nutrition, exercise, mindfulness, and positivity have on music makers’ mental health, along with actionable steps forward. By providing legitimate, science-based, and concrete information as well as tangible tools, we want to help music makers prioritize and take better care of their mental wellbeing.

Record Union donates $30 000 to prevent mental illness among music makers
More than seven out of ten (73%) independent music makers have experienced negative emotions such as stress, anxiety and/or depression in relation to their music creation. Of those, one out of three (33%) have experienced panic attacks.
To take action and contribute to a healthier music climate, Record Union is donating $30,000 to enable projects that aim to prevent or treat mental illness among music makers.
Between the 7th of May and the 2nd of June, we’ve collected over 200 projects. 45 of them met the pre-defined criteria and were published on this site. Thereafter, a public voting phase, ending on the 16th of June, followed. The ten projects that received the most votes met a panel of experts who in turn selected the projects to be awarded with the donation. You can read more about the expert panel below.
Visit the project page to find out which projects have been awarded with the donation.
The Independent tag
The global independent market share of recorded music is almost 30 percent, but out of streaming it is only 19.5 percent. The rest is controlled by three major record labels. This means that independent music makers are struggling even more in the era of streaming.
To change this, we want the streaming services to acknowledge independent music by integrating the most important tag for independent content. Click below to read our open letter to Amazon, Apple, Spotify and YouTube and read more about the initiative.
Independent Music Friday
Every Friday, Record Union presents and highlights new music from independent artists in Independent Music Friday. The purpose is to give independents a new platform to be seen, noticed and acknowledged. The only criteria to be featured is to be a Record Union artist with a new release.
Make sure to upload your music at least 10 days before your desired release date (so there’s enough time for us to review and fall in love with it).
