MOBO Help Musicians Fund (18+)
If you’re looking to take your career to the next level, the MOBO Help Musicians Fund can provide financial support to help you create music, develop your business skills and drive your career forward. The MOBO Help Musicians Fund exists to facilitate these opportunities for musicians making Hip Hop, Grime, R&B, Soul, music of African origin, Reggae, Jazz and Gospel.
Music creators can apply for financial support of up to £3,000 towards recording and releasing music; helping to build creative portfolios and get music out into the world. You could apply for financial support towards a new EP, a series of single releases, a marketing plan around new music or perhaps some content creation to accompany your release.
To help musicians build long-term, sustainable plans around their creativity, we also facilitate one-to-one advice sessions from professionals in the music industry on topics relevant to your career path.
When musicians are busy creating music, it can be challenging to listen to their bodies and notice when things aren’t quite right. As well as the above, supported artists will also receive a health consultation from a BAPAM specialist to talk through and address any issues.

- One-to-one business advice sessions tailored to your individual needs and delivered via experienced music industry professionals, as coordinated by ThinkMusic

The MOBO Help Musicians Fund has a focus on independent music creators who are controlling one or more aspects of their career (e.g. self-managing, self-releasing, self-producing).
