“Wonderful, whimsical and even a little bit wicked.” – Broadway World

“Explosive... offers a variety of musical genres, from love ballads to indie-rock anthems, with stories of love, hope, murder, resilience and connection, as told by misfit children, reckless adults and various assorted creatures. In the artist’s signature style, it’s at once nostalgic and contemporary, mundane and dramatic, sprawling in scope and intimate in theme, with a wide selection of Iconis classics... and never-before-heard songs.” – DC Theater Arts

“Each song... is a photograph, capturing a moment in time, a story, a slice of a person's life, and each of these tales springs forth from the mind of Mr. Iconis in ways wonderful, whimsical, and even a little bit wicked.” – Broadway World
