Iconoclast Robot / Press

“A friend of mine told me to check out the band Iconoclast Robot and said that I would not be disappointed. He was right! Iconoclast Robot is a band made up of amazing musicians, each of them with a different style. They are what could only be classified as fusion, bringing a little bit of everything to the table. With a style unlike any other Sacramento band, Iconoclast Robot is definitely a band to watch out for. They are true musicians who love what they do and you can tell that for these guys it’s all about the music. If you haven’t heard their music it is a definite must. You can check them out at www.reverbnation.com/iconoclast robot, Facebook or Twitter.”

“Truly live hip-hop is a rare thing—the Roots have that market cornered—but just having an emcee and live musicians doesn't necessarily qualify a group as “live hip-hop.” Sacramento-based troupe Iconoclast Robot is just too eclectic to wear that label. Sure, hip-hop's in there, but so is moody, melodic '90s-influenced alternative rock. And, yes, emcee Ryan Charles can sing, too. This isn't even rap rock or nu metal with hip-hop influences or some other well-trodden rap-hybrid subgenre. It's new territory. It's music that melts genres to the point of stripping them of their previous connotations. There's the raw energy of rock, the poetry of hip-hop and influences hard to even pinpoint.”

“With a multi-faceted sound, local band Iconoclast Robot brings something new and fresh to the Sacramento music scene. Comprised of vocalist Charles Cash (nee Ryan Charles Gammad), Patrick Caden (bass and guitar), Russell Boucher (guitar), Jairus Beacham (drums) and Jamal Siurano (keys, beats and saxophone), Iconoclast Robot blends jazz, hip-hop and rock together to create a fusion all their own. With music as their drive and passion, the band is looking to turn heads with their rare and intriguing sound.”
