The Young Icons

The Young Icons TV Theme

The Young Icons is a new series airing on the CW Network, highlighting stories about the best of America’s youth, including world class athletes, philanthropists, accomplished artists, and entrepreneurs. I, in collaboration with Los Angeles guitarist and songwriter Michael Elsner, wrote the theme song as well as some music used inside the show. Episodes of The Young Icons are available for viewing online here.

The theme itself is an upbeat electro-pop piece with lots of special effects, stutters, synths, and swelled guitar textures. Listen here:
