ABOUT

On November 13, 2020, Jonathan 'Chaka' Mahone, an artist, entrepreneur, advocate, and one-half of the dynamic hip hop duo, Riders Against the Storm, introduced the Black Live Music Fund in support of Austin-area Black musicians and music industry entrepreneurs. This fund aims to raise $50,000 in private donations byJune 2021 to support Austin’s current cultural foundation with small micro grants for local Black musicians and music industry workers in 2021 and beyond.

The Black Live Music Fund intends to create artist education and economic initiatives to help recipients sustain their music careers while fund organizers develop a long-term platform to promote Black music in Austin. A longer-term goal of the Black Live Music Fund is to establish a Black-owned music venue with a revenue structure that directly benefits artists and helps establish an environment for Black artists to flourish in Austin.
