Icons and Angels is Sean Duregger and Brad Grout. Created back in 2001 in Iowa, they decided to attempt self-recording an album. Taking apart the Waldorf College radio station for 3 evenings, we stayed up all night writing and recording. The result wasn’t perfect, but it was one of our most cherished memories. We were creating something ourselves and whether or not it was perfect, it was a snapshot into a moment of time that no one can take away.
2 full albums and 1 EP were recorded over 3 years. While we are in different phases of our lives now, Icons and Angels is still very much alive. 10 years after our first impromptu recording session, we are beginning the phases of writing new material. I’m in California and Brad is in Iowa, so we’ll have to be creative in recording. 2011 is going to be an exciting year.
