Taking a cue from commercial radio sounds and blending them with a heavier edge, Icon For Hire emerges as one of the most promising rock bands in the Midwest Region. The band thrives on creating commercially appealing and catchy music that will hook the average listener, yet the message behind the melodies is what leaves people wanting more.

Icon For Hire was conceived in late 2007 by founding members Ariel, Shawn Jump, and Adam Kronshagen. From their beginning, a desire to do something greater than just create music was a shared motivation. The band set off to put their heart and soul into every show and each fan interaction. In their two years of existence, the band has amassed an impressive and dedicated fan base through consistent touring and intentional personal interaction with each listener. Icon For Hire has co-produced and self-released two 3-track EPs, won numerous battle of the band contests live and on radio, and independently booked over 200 shows.

The band desires to endorse a message of hope without diluting the reality of hardships faced in life, and use music as a tool to communicate to youth and adults alike. Their live shows are full of energy, personality, and movement, and just one glance explains why their fan base has grown so rapidly as well as why they're one of the most talked about new bands in central Illinois. Icon For Hire is authentic, professional, hard working, and determined to be a global presence in the music industry.

In 2010, the band announced that they had signed on with Tooth & Nail Records and would be working on their next album through the label.
