Icy Lando started his musical career with The Kenyan Boys Choir. The outfit soon became one of Kenya’s most successful musical exports, performing at Barack Obama’s inauguration. They then went on to sign with Universal Music, before performing with Nelly Furtado, Demi Lovato & Selena Gomez.
“Was the best time in my teen years, where i got to meet and work with world renowned artists as well as a major label like UMG. Our success with the choir showed me that you can achieve your dreams and where you come from really does not matter.”
Now Icy is taking his experience in the industry to a new challenge, launching his solo project in 2019. Not one to shy away from a challenge, the new material marks a shift from his choir days inspired by working with UK producers N-Geezy and Fliptunes (Tory Lanez, David Jay, The Game). “On A Regular” featured Australian pop singer Sire on the chorus, and it’s a hook-driven piece of R’n’B with an undeniable, old school flavour. Icy’s rapping style takes influence from his time travelling the globe, leaning on UK Grime, Old School Hip Hop and of course, his Kenyan Heritage. It’s a track with undeniable flow and a hook that will stand the test of time.
“On A Regular is a sexy, feel good type of song. I love to have fun and i want to portray that in my music. I want when people listen to me, to just forget about their daily troubles and have fun. Life is too short. Also having to work with an artist from a different country brings a different style to the track”
