“We want musicians to know we’re here for them. It’s critical for artists to stay connected with their fans right now, especially when they can’t perform in the same room. Our Home Sessions and Stay at Home content is designed for a life in lockdown and gives developing artists a fresh way to get their voices heard.” said Nigel Harding, VP of Global Artist Marketing at Deezer.

Our “Home Sessions” and “Stay at Home With…” series are available to stream today, exclusively on Deezer. Watch this space for more Home Sessions in the coming weeks!
