Rachel Taylor and Trevor Kelly formed the sunny pop duo He Is We after becoming friends while working at a music equipment store in Tacoma, Washington during the late 2000s. They steadily built a presence on social networking sites, and by the end of 2009, He Is We had been named PureVolume's number one unsigned band of the year. Taylor's sweet vocals layered on top of simple, catchy pop melodies generated plenty of buzz on other sites, too, and following the February 2010 release of an album filled with old demos, He Is We inked a deal with Universal Motown. Their official debut full-length, My Forever, followed in November, and the duo supported it on a fall tour with the Rocket Summer. The LP peaked at number six on the Billboard Heatseekers albums chart, and to capitalize on their momentum, the band issued a pair of EPs, Acoustic/Live and Skip to the Good Part, in 2011. The following year, Taylor was diagnosed with the painful arthritic disease ankylosing spondylitis, and was unable to tour. In August 2012, Trevor Kelly officially left the fold, leaving Taylor, who had just returned to the stage, the sole member of the group. In 2014, Taylor struck out on her own with the EP Come Alive, and the following year saw her issue the single "Boomerang" under the moniker She Is We, with the full-length War dropping a year later. In 2016, Taylor and Kelly reunited under the He Is We banner for a series of shows, and in 2017 they released a collection of old demos and re-released songs called Fall Out of Line. ~ Corey Apar
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 cds 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. Thank you for making this all possible.
