    When Joey Dean (singer), Lenny J (guitarist), Niko Vaude (guitarist), and Tylo (bassist) banded together, they sought to revive the energy and free spirit of the iConic 1980s rock 'n' roll scene. Since then, their jetsetting sound and bad boy charm has captured an array of audiences along their journey.

    Pros & iCons breaks pop stereotypes and transcends genre. Though synth-driven, each instrumental comes to life with the guitar. From booming solos to infectious leads, each instrumental breathes with the accompaniment of the guitar's purr. The group propels the momentum of each track by harnessing pseudo hip-hop percussion, crushing bass, contemporary trap hi-hats, and rhythmic 808s, all of which forge the heartbeat of each composition. Through all these hard and traditionally anarchical sounds, the vocals remain clean, clear, and soaring to juxtapose the aforementioned grit. With an intent of theatrical clarity, the vocals are chiseled with a more classic approach channeling the soulful beginnings of rock ‘n’ roll. Amicably coalesceable, the sounds dance in one fresh and progressive blend that’s uniquely Pros & iCons.
