Twin brothers Ty and Trey are living their dream as professional musicians writing songs that strike an emotional chord with their listeners. As The Icarus Account, they’ve learned a lot about writing and performing, but ultimately the goal has never changed. “We try to write songs that are honest and relatable,” Trey shares. “One of the most beautiful things about writing songs is that it proves how connected all of us really are. We get messages all the time where people tell us that our songs ‘say everything they are feeling but didn’t know how to express.’ To me it’s really humbling, because I’ve never met that person before and yet they are feeling the same feelings that we had when we wrote the song.”
