Icon for Hire is an American rock band from Decatur, Illinois. Formed in 2007, the band's current lineup consists of singer Ariel (mononymous) and guitarist Shawn Jump. They released two EPs independently before signing to Tooth & Nail Records, through which they released their two Billboard-charting albums Scripted in 2011 and Icon for Hire on October 15, 2013.

Ariel is a Christian and has spoken openly about her faith, though she has frequently asked that her band not be labeled a Christian rock band for fear of alienating non-believers. She is an amateur fashion designer, frequently wearing self-made clothing and selling her own brand, Custom Catastrophes, through the website Etsy.

Postion: Guitarist, Composer
Full Name: Shawn Jump
Brithdate: May 14 1984 (Age: 32)

He got his first job when he was 13 years old. He and vocalist Ariel Bloomer formed the band in Illinois in 2007. He was diagnosed with thoracic outlet syndrome in 2009. He performed with Icon for Hire at Vans Warped Tour.

A NOTE FROM TOMOYO As a Kickstarter I want to share this band with the world! Of course I will not be posting their music on AHS as they are an American band, but I urge you that if you love their music, please support them by purchasing their new songs from 2016 on ITUNES!!!

I love this band so much, I wanted to show them to everyone who may not have discovered them! They got a bad rap with Tooth & Nail Records. The band explained that they left the company because they were being bullied and they were being forced to censor themselves. They are now producing their third studio album You Can't Kill Us independently through the help of their fans. Although the Kickstarter funder is over, you can still support them by purchasing their newer songs off Itunes. They have claimed they do not have rights to the first two albums. They are an amazing band and they're lyrics are amazing.
