Voice Out Jams in the Bronx is known for giving people a space to be heard. Now, they’re struggling to keep their doors open. 
The studio is located on East 233rd Street. Before the coronavirus, they were hosting weekly jam sessions and now they’re hoping to keep their doors open. 
Owners say they launched a GoFundMe page and have been posting performances online. 
Musicians, poets and lyricists have all had a home at the studio. 
Royal Khaoz performs there and they also use the studio to give people a safe space to express themselves. 
"There's no other venue like this in the Bronx lots in Manhattan or Brooklyn so it's easier for people from Westchester to come to a similar scene instead of going to Manhattan,” said Khaoz. 
Artists say they want to make sure spaces like these stay open. The studio has relied on local artists and donations to stay afloat. 
If they can open, they’re making sure it’s handled in a safe way, using their music to spread the love and help people forget about the daily burdens of life.
