From the March 17th, 2017 issue of The Load In:
Here at Startup Musician, we’re Passion Pit fans. I’ve interviewed two former members, Xander Singh and Ian Hultquist (podcast episodes 10 and 16 respectively), and also just generally like their music.
Now Passion Pit frontman Michael Angelakos is launching a company to support musicians. It’s called The Wishart Group, and its goal is to support musicians with legal, educational, and healthcare services. He’s already raised $250 million in funding.
The company is said to be primarily focusing on mental health for musicians, a topic close to Angelakos: he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder at age 17. Details so far are sparce, but Angelakos is expected to make a formal announcement soon.
Obamacare? Repeal and replace? Nah, let me get that Sleepyhead Care.
