More about Icon For Hire:
Since 2007, the band has been establishing their strong following by touring extensively across the Mid-West.  From the beginning, the band has written music with a positive view without downplaying the hardships in life, which is a vision the label understands and supports.  Icon For Hire is composed of front-woman Ariel, guitarist Shawn Jump and drummer Adam Kronshagen.

“We’re a really tight knit group of friends and we put a lot of care into what we’re putting out there for people,” sums up Ariel. “We’re not the kind of people who want to hang out in the green room all day. We get out there to talk to our fans for hours before and after the show and we try to infuse a hopeful element in what we do and say."
