Invest in the Health of Music-Makers on #GivingTuesday

Show You Care this Giving Tuesday

As we head into the final month of 2019, we're reflecting on the ways in which music enriches our lives daily. This Giving Tuesday, we're grateful we have the opportunity to give back to music-makers everyday.

Unison has helped over 800 community members
pay their rent, keep the heat on, receive mental health counselling, and we have provided access to many more life-saving services.

Mothica is the audio / visual project of McKenzie Ellis. 

McKenzie learned to produce in Ableton and released an EP called Mythic in 2015. Her somber song about self-empowerment, “No One” reached No. 6 on the US Viral Spotify Charts. Soon after, she released the smash hit “Clear” with Canadian producer Pusher. The song currently sits at 14 million plays on Spotify and put her on the radar for everyone from Spotify execs to Teen Vogue. In the following couple of years, Mothica released 2 more EPs and collaborated with artists like Crywolf, Tennyson and Said The Sky.
