“Research tells us that music fans care deeply about issues relating to Mental Health, something that everybody deals with at some point in their lives,” shares BETTER NOISE MUSIC GM Paul Cormack. “Mental Health Awareness month is right around the corner, and we recognized an opportunity to make a difference. We reached out to Aric (Steinberg) and his team at Sweet Relief and quickly established a partnership with Better Noise to raise funds for Sweet Relief's new dedicated Mental Health fund. We hope fans will be excited about these once-in-a-lifetime Grand Prize opportunities donated by artists and help us raise funds for all those in the music business who need the help that Sweet Relief offers.”

“Sweet Relief has been helping musicians and music industry professionals since 1994 to help fund medical and vital living expenses,” elaborates ARIC STEINBERG (EVP of Development/Artist Relations at Sweet Relief Musicians Fund). “We created the Music’s Mental Health Fund in partnership with Backline to help address the mental health crisis in the music industry. From touring musicians, venue staff, touring crew members and industry professionals, the grant allows us to fund costs for sessions with a dedicated clinic and a case manager to create a specific mental health plan catered to the applicant’s needs. We’re excited to partner with Better Noise Music and their artists to help further our efforts and provide a fun and memorable experience for a lucky winner.”

ASKING ALEXANDRIA guitarist BEN BRUCE commented on being involved in the fundraiser: "Being in this industry for so long, we’ve seen firsthand how many people need strength, help and encouragement which is why we are so excited to be teaming up with Sweet Relief."

Throughout the course of the “Fan Love Sweepstakes,” BETTER NOISE MUSIC will be sharing mental health discussions, roundtables and highlighting mental health-related tips from artists on the label’s roster, touring professionals and music industry professionals across their social media platforms. Use the hashtags #FanLoveSweepstakes & #MHAM to join the conversation.
