ICONIC EYE – Hidden In Plain Sight [Lee Small on lead vocals] (2015)

Founded by guitarist Greg Dean as a studio project to record his self penned songs, British melodic rock ICONIC EYE quickly transformed into something else. Having secured a slot at the prestigious Download festival in 2015 and received the ‘best new band of the year 2014’ award by Firebrand Magazine, the band’s first album “Hidden In Plain Sight” – featuring on lead vocals the great Lee Small (LIONHEART, SHY) – easily was one of the best Melodic Rock / AOR debuts that year.
This is a CD that would have sold by the truckloads of it had been launched in the second half of the ’80s.

ICONIC EYE – Back From Behind The Sun (2020)

British melodic rockers ICONIC EYE are back with new material, “Back From Behind The Sun“, still female fronted but now with a new singer; Janey Smith, previously known as ‘Janey Bombshell’.
Founded by guitarist Greg Dean, ICONIC EYE’S 2015 debut album featured half of the songs sung by renowned Lee Small (SHY, LIONHEART), but in 2017 the band made the bold move to become female fronted. This change lifted the existing songs and created the right environment for the band to start writing again.
Now they are back with new blood in Janey Bombshell, and let me tell you this is music that the melodic rock fraternity should unhesitatingly embrace, easily comparable to acts like LEE AARON, SARAYA, VIXEN and ROMEO’S DAUGHTER to name a few.
As extra, we have the remixed previous songs from the band just released as standalone singles.

ICONIC EYE – Into The Light (2017)

British melodic rockers ICONIC EYE were back in 2017 with their second effort “Into The Light“, a transitional album to take fans along from the first male orientated album to the new female-fronted format. Indeed, for this second release, Iconic Eye featured new singer Jane Gould and lead guitarist Robin Mitchard. Jane provided a more melodic approach yet with power, while Mitchard’s guitars brought a welcomed edge to the band.
“Into The Light” is classic female-fronted British Melodic Rock with a hard edge, some moments of pomp, a bit of AOR, but first and foremost melodic all over with tons of punch.
