MEET FAN OF THE MONTH, SEAN
1. How long have you been listening to Set It Off?
I've been listening to SIO ever since Skeleton came out.
2. Where did you discover Set It Off?
I actually discovered Set It Off through a really close friend of mine who said SIO has helped them out a lot, and in turn, SIO has helped me out a lot too!
3. How has Set It Off affected your life?
Set It Off has affected my life because they've helped me believe in being a Dream Catcher, reminding myself to keep going these last few months, and remembering that I am loved. I've been struggling a lot lately with my mental health these last few months and being wanting to do things I can't forgive myself for, but having SIO and their music has helped. I haven't been mentally the best in a few months because of everything going on with me, not having therapy and constantly working, but the guys are basically my musical therapists right now, and it means the world to me to hear their music and be able to feel better, and feel that it's okay to not be happy all the time. I actually have the SIO hourglass tattooed on me because it reminds me, I'm still here, and I have a big coping mechanism, and that's SIO and their music. I'm actually getting another SIO tattoo later this year that's going to be a silver ribbon on my ankle having to do with me having schizophrenia, and it's gonna have the words "Dream Catcher" in it, because it's a song that reminds me to keep going, and not letting anybody put me down. I'm slowly but surely getting better, and most of it is because of SIO, and I'm proud to admit that no matter what. 💖
4. What was the best Set It Off show you’ve ever been to & why?
Richmond, VA, April 26th, 2022! The guys were beyond sweet to me, and Cody loved the matching bracelet I made for him. The clasp wound up breaking at the end of the show, and when I asked him about it, he said he wanted to wear it on stage because I made it for him. I left the venue that night crying happy tears, and absolutely loving my evening. Still can't believe Cody loved the bracelet, it really made me happy and made me feel so much better.
5. If you could give Set It Off a message - what would it be?
The message I would give them is thank you for being here for your fans, and being able to be honest with them. Thank you for helping your fans feel better, get better with their mental health, feel loved, accepted and heard in the SIO community. 💖
6. What’s your favorite Set It Off song?
Right now, it would have to be Skeleton! It's about accepting you're not perfect, and I know l'm far from it, and I'm happy just with the way I am with myself, skin and bones, vulnerable. :P
7. Any requests/ideas/feedback on the fan club?
Hm...ideas. Maybe we could all make like a fan club banner? Everyone pitches in with something they drew/wrote, something like that?
Thank you guys for the opportunity to do this, and be able to be featured. Thank you guys for always making my mental health better
