Icky’s Ego is the Avante-Garage rock collaboration of Los Angeles based musicians David Crocco and Cela Scott.
The pair spend their daylight hours sequestered in a castle in the Hollywood Hills with producer extraordinaire Brian David Hardin, investigating sonic landscapes and mental meltdowns.
David’s contributions include vocals, percussion, guitar, and keyboards.
Dave was born in Port Washington, NY, and lived in Hudson, OH until he was a teenager. He moved to Atlanta, GA with his rock band Tabula Rasa and toured the southeast, eventually settling in Tennessee to mix audio on Nashville’s prestigious music row. Dave’s talent as a mixer brought him to LA, where he now owns the post production audio company A.G.E. Post.
Cela supplies vocals and guitar. She grew up in Nashville, TN, fronting America’s first generation of eccentric home schooled children. She came to LA to attend USC’s school of theatre, and completed the program with a BFA. Recently, her focus has been in rock and roll music, the forbidden love she’d harbored during many childhood years spent touring with a classical children’s choir.
Their hard-hitting/ambient sound is rounded out by the talents of musicians Teri Hitt, Phil Brathwait, June Kato and DeAnn Dallas.
Some of Dave and Cela’s musical loves and influences are The Beatles, DJ Shadow, Bjork, Led Zeppelin, Prince, P. J. Harvey, Massive Attack, The Doors, Jeff Buckley, Beck, Public Enemy, Sigur Ross, David Bowie, The White Stripes, The Pretenders, The Police, and Pink Floyd…
