Cody Carson is a popular YouTube personality who records himself performing a variety of covers at his house. He also fronts the rock band Set It Off, which is signed to Equal Vision Records and gets millions of views on its YouTube channel. So, which came first, Carson the YouTube star or Carson the lead singer of Set It Off? Well, both. He started his channel and formed the band around 10 years ago. At first no one really noticed either, but now Carson is a rock star and a YouTube pop star. Singing pop music isn’t a big stretch for him as his approach to rock is very much pop-oriented. He may have the loud distorted guitars and driving drums, but they’re mixed with cool synths and hooky sing-along choruses. These are songs that will camp out in your eardrums and never leave.
