He Is We
He Is We are back. After releasing their demos EP, Fall Out Of Line, earlier this year, the band have announced a new tour with the Icarus Account—and, even more, a new outlook in an attempt to bring it all back to square one. He Is We, consisting of Rachel Taylor and Trevor Kelly, have gone through formation—and reformation—since their start back in 2008, but looking ahead, Taylor explains that the band has done something special, creating music and a message that is much bigger than either her or Kelly themselves. And through this realization and growth, He Is We have found a place to regroup and continue to produce music together. It’s at this point that they’ve refound themselves and where they want to head going forward. “I want to make it clear that there isn’t bad blood,” Taylor explains. “Trevor is like a brother to me. We’ve both been healing in our own way, and we needed to go our separate ways in order for us to find one another again, as adults.” The band has plenty to look forward to, though—a new tour, new music and with it all, a revival of the movement they’ve created through their music and message. Although lyrical content might change, as both Taylor and Kelly have grown since 2010’s My Forever, their inspirational and honest message remains the same. “We’re not 18 anymore. Our content is going to change, but I think the message remains. There’s nothing that could change it,” Taylor explains. “We’ve been through some emotional stuff, so of course it’s going to change how we write. We’re getting to know each other again. It’s almost like two siblings who have been apart a lot of their life reuniting.” Taylor says their musical chemistry and influences have given them the opportunity to make something important, taking it back to the way it was in the beginning in an effort to reconnect with themselves and their fans. “The only way He Is We could continue to survive is if we went back to our roots and remember why we started doing it,” Taylor explains. “I remember sitting at home and reading comments on YouTube videos from He Is We fans, and it hit me like a brick wall: This thing is bigger than me, it’s bigger than Trevor. This is a movement.”
The Icarus Account
It’s Ty & Trey. We are The Icarus Account, two twin brothers from Florida who love to write and record music. It has been a lifelong dream of ours to tour the country while sharing our music with people so thank you for making that a reality. Pursuing this dream has been quite a journey, filled with tons of ups and downs, but we have loved every second of it. We never know quite what to say when we write these “bios.” Supposedly we should brag about how good our new album is or how many CD's we’ve sold or tell you the cool bands with whom we’ve toured, but it feels much more personal to just say “thank you so so much for listening.” We are a small operation, two brothers recording out of a home studio in a spare bedroom, yet we have been able to make connections with countless people around the world. As cool as it’s been to hear one of our songs in a TV show or open for some big names, it has been even more meaningful to hear real life stories from people who have been impacted by our music. Whether it’s a fan who used our song “Favorite Girl” to propose to his fiance, or a couple who shared their first dance to “So In Love,” or a high-schooler struggling with depression that has been comforted by our song “Mayday;” these stories are a reminder of how powerful music can be and how lucky we are to be able to reach the world by doing what we love. While it’s been a few years since we were 17 year old kids recording our first set of demos, our passion for music and the connection that it brings remains the same. We love writing. We love recording. We love meeting fans for the first time and calling them friends by the end of the night. And we love that you are listening to our music.
Woven In Hiatus
Hailing from Boston MA, Woven In Hiatus is an indie acoustic project comprised of singer-songwriter Luke Nagel, bassist Nicolas Casis, guitarists Richard Pingree and Kaleb Thibeau and percussionist Nicholas Aspell. Musically the band puts together a wide array of influences to create a unique blend of indie acoustic, shoegaze, and pop punk with an emphasis on storytelling and emotive lyrics. After coming together in the late fall of 2015, the band has released one 4 song EP titled Roam, and has since signed with the Ohio based indie-rock record label InVogue Records. Since the signing, the band has released their first full length record "Anatomical Heart", which debuted at #23 on Alternative New Artists Albums on Billboard.
