Not just loans, but advances and loan forgiveness too. It all depends on the state that your business is situated in, and you can find that information on MusicCovidRelief.com.
One of the things that is true of how this pandemic is affecting the music industry, is in how it has highlighted the importance of the smaller players in the game.

Without them, the music industry would struggle. That’s why the industry is doing as much as it can to help out as many artists as it can.
