The Icarus Account: Connecting Through Music, Teamwork & Fan Experiences

This week we’re joined by singer/songwriters Trey and Ty Turner of The Icarus Account. The Icarus Account have released 7 albums independently since 2007, with their latest album “Over The Moon” out now. Their music has enabled them to make countless connections all over the world through his music, which the band say is more important to them than anything else.

The band are definitely on our wavelength – in their bio, they say “We love writing. We love recording. We love meeting fans for the first time and calling them friends by the end of the night.” In this interview we hear about how they’ve coped with changes in the industry over the past 10 years, the advice they’d offer to fellow artists, and about their new record, “Over the Moon.”
