Pros & Icons

Pros & Icons aim for “Iconic”

Produced by: Meghan Hartnett


Formed in 2014, Pros & Icons is a locally made band based in New York City. The band considers themselves Pop/Rock but generally doesn’t like to label the sounds of their music. They write about heartbreak, success, failure, and the nostalgia of youth. Joseph Matando, a graduate of Mount Saint Mary College, is the lead singer. Lenny Morales and Nick Vaude are on guitar. Tyler O’Leary is on bass. And Nick Cardona is the drummer.

Since first taking the stage at Mount Saint Mary College in 2014, the group has played with big name musicians such as Meghan Trainor, Rita Ora, Jessie J, Shawn Mendes, Charlie XCX, Aaron Carter and many more. They’re local fame seemed to sky rocket after playing at the 2014 Jingle Ball as Z100’s Hometown Heroes!

With the success of the Jingle Ball, Pros & Icons continued to garner recognition with their covers and music videos on Facebook and Youtube. As of today (December 2016), Pros & Icons have managed a subscription base of 5,005 and over 750,000 views. Their first EP track IConography, released in 2014, can be listened to on their Youtube channel or on their Spotify Channel or bought on itunes!

They are currently working on their second album and are eager to release it! In the meantime, they have no upcoming shows, but have been busy on social media and continue to release cover songs on youtube!
