Music can’t always cure what ails you, even if you’re the one who makes it. This is why FMC created the Health Insurance Navigation Tool (HINT) in 2005 as a free service for musicians to learn about their health insurance options. Our two health insurance experts (who are also musicians) volunteer their time to run the program, which is why we’re always happy to have folks like you chip in to keep this worthy resource up and running. read more

Ever been to a show that just completely blew you away on all levels? I just attended one. Even better, I got to perform at it.
On Friday, May 28, The Cat’s Cradle in Carrboro, North Carolina hosted “Thank You Friend: A Tribute To Alex Chilton.” Local musicians from the area’s legendary scene hit the stage at 8pm, playing ten-minute sets(!!) up ’til 11:30 to remember Chilton’s music and raise money for Future of Music Coalition’s Health Insurance Navigation Tool (HINT) project. I’m always proud to represent HINT on behalf of FMC. And I was equally delighted to take part in honoring Chilton, one of my all-time favorite artists whose work with Big Star influenced more musicians than you can shake a Telecaster at, myself included.
