Try Hard x HAAM
Try Hard Coffee is supporting Austin musicians, join us.
As of November 1st, proceeds from every bag of Try Hard Coffee sold are donated to HAAM (Health Alliance for Austin Musicians). HAAM provides access to affordable health care for Austin’s low-income working musicians, with a focus on prevention and wellness.
Try Hard is also now selling vinyl from local Austin artists.
100% of album sales go directly to the artist. Additionally, all artists involved will donate 10% of their Try Hard album sales to HAAM. Available both in shop and online at tryhardcoffee.com, the current lineup of LP’s include: The Octopus Project, Moving Panoramas, Daphne Tunes, Big Bill, Annabelle Chairlegs, Holy Wave, Third Root, and several releases from the Austin Boogie Crew. The rotation features some of the best psych rock, shoegaze, dream pop, hip-hop, and modern funk made in Austin, Texas.
Many Austin musicians are self-employed and have no access to health insurance or basic health care. They often work multiple jobs and struggle to pay for food, clothing and shelter, with nothing left for health care.
That’s where we come in. By resolving challenges such as long-neglected teeth to hearing loss, heart problems and depression, HAAM and our partners improve and save musicians’ lives and enhance Austin’s economy and quality of life. Austin is the Live Music Capital of the World, and we aim to keep it that way.
We have helped over 5,300 musicians access over 56,000 healthcare appointments valued at over $73 million dollars since we began in 2005. These include routine dental work, doctor visits and prescriptions, psychiatric counseling sessions, eye exams, out-patient procedures, specialist referrals, hearing screenings and more.
