With the nation in a self-quarantined lockdown from coast-to-coast, artists are taking their talents to the Internet to further a feeling of community and togetherness during the isolating times of the coronavirus pandemic.
With venues, bars and musical institutions in a state of shutdown, rock musicians have been inspired to find new, creative ways to connect with their fans in isolation.
