My guest today is Natalie Price, an Austin-based Indie-americana musician, whose activity in the music industry has been affected hard by the coronavirus crisis.
She played her last live show at the onset of the lockdown, and for the first time ever she found herself asking people not to come to her gig.
We talk about how Texas musicians are going through this crisis, and what they can do support each other.
Natalie also shares what she does everyday to stay in touch with her friends, fans and music community.
Like our previous guests, Natalie is staying positive as she adjusts her life to the new situation that could potentially last for months.
