The year 2020 changed everyone’s life and couldn’t end fast enough. COVID-19, racial uprisings, brutal death of George Floyd, and election fraud dominated headlines. The music industry touring and live performance market collapsed and nose-dived earnings for musicians worldwide. Recording artists were forced to create alternative streams of income and rebrand digitally. Music consumption and distribution were at an all-time high in 2020, and artists felt compelled to create and inspire.
United Kingdom entrepreneur and recording artist Ben Hughes aka Tall Children, accelerated his music impact in 2020. Tall Children kept all cylinders firing with bi-weekly virtual music concerts, Instagram live-listening sessions, Facebook meet and greet fan parties, and TIKTOK karaoke events. Tall Children’s inspiring ‘Last For Long’ became an instant anthem in 2020 and uplifted people’s spirits in the name of faith. Tall Children’s music possesses a unique balance of hope, romance, pain, and endless aspiration. ‘Last For Long’ reminds us why we should never stop believing in a better tomorrow.
