What started out as a fun project for Seattle-based band Asterhouse quickly evolved into a deep dive into the effects COVID-19 has had on the local music scene. When the global pandemic flipped our world upside down, every industry felt it. As events and gatherings were canceled, those working in the arts, and more specifically local musicians, struggled to survive. The documentary Stay Well, Stay Awake is a peek behind the curtain of how Seattle musicians have navigated these unprecedented times.
A huge thank you and a massive congratulations to Asterhouse on this project! We're appreciative of your hard work in telling these stories and preserving the realities of the global pandemic on a hyper-local level.
