- Fort Myers, Florida - Today, in the digital age of music, the average music connoisseur is flooded with a variety of bands, each pleading that their music be given a spin. I remember in the early days of MySpace when I would receive about five band friend requests a day before MySpace gave us the option of blocking band requests. Many of the bands sounded the same, but once in awhile a band came across with a unique sound or a unique voice. The Icarus Account is one such band, bringing a memorable acoustic, harmony-driven sound to a vastly over-saturated acoustic pop/rock scene.
The Icarus Account is comprised of twin brothers, Trey and Ty Turner, who hail from Fort Myers, Florida. Since their formation around 2007, the brothers have developed a loyal fan base, resulting in them postponing their academic pursuits in 2009 in favour of their musical ambitions, despite still being unsigned. I talked to them about some of the challenges of trying to make it in today's digital music age, as well as a bit about their music, and their backgrounds.
