Rage Against The Machine frontman Tom Morello, as well as Lily Cornell Silver, mental health advocate and daughter of Chris Cornell, Khruangbin frontwoman Laura Leezy, famed photographer Danny Clinch, and YOLA will all make appearances at the “Set Break” livestream fundraiser on The Relix Channel, exclusively on Twitch on April 10th. The event serves as a fundraiser and calls attention to the mental health crisis in the music industry in the wake of the ongoing pandemic.
Performers include Old Dominion, Alanis Morissette, Leon Bridges, Black Pumas, Sara Bareilles, Bob Weir & Wolf Bros, Ben Folds, Los Lobos, and Wyclef Jean & Jerry Wonda (The Fugees), to name a few. The event is sponsored by the non-profit organization, Backline.
“Set Break” is a free event, but there will be many opportunities to donate and support the mental health of the music industry. In addition to benefiting Backline, a portion of the proceeds will benefit Crew Nation, Live Nation's global relief fund for live music crews, and Sweet Relief's Mental Health Fund, which provides financial assistance to music industry workers seeking therapy and other forms of mental health care, who may otherwise be struggling to make ends meet.
