1,500 acts and bands this week call on the government to protect the UK's live music industry
As Resident Artist at the Half Moon Putney, I join Music Manger Nina Jackson and 1,500 acts and bands this week – including The Stones, Paul McCartney and Dua Lipa – in calling on the government to take urgent action to protect the UK’s live music industry from collapse.

Grassroots music venues need urgent help now to #saveourvenues & #LetTheMusicPlay.

My drawings and oil paintings of musicians pay tribute to the fantastic bands I have seen at the iconic music venue over the past three years,.

So here's my portrait of the Half Moon Putney - just one of the country's live music venues that is joining its voice to the call so that, when it's safe for us to return, they and others can continue to support new kids on the block and allow us to enjoy the music of both established and famous bands.

Many of my musician artworks will shortly be available to click and buy via Skylark Galleries new online shop which launches at the end of July. Until then, if you’re interested in purchasing any, please contact me. stella.tooth@gmail.com
