About Macklemore & Ryan Lewis:
Macklemore & Ryan Lewis, a duo from Seattle, Washington, have emerged as a premier national hip-hop group known for their electrifying live shows, expertly crafted music, and innovative music videos and media. After years of building momentum with impassioned support from their devoted fan base, 2012 was a banner year for the group, kicked off by Macklemores feature in XXL’s Freshman Class. Most recently, they have broken new ground by independently releasing their debut full-length album, The Heist, which shot into the #1 spot on iTunes and debuted at #2 on the Billboard charts without the support of a traditional record label. Their single “Thrift Shop” has reached #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart (3x Platinum), with help from a wildly popular music video (80 million views on YouTube) on heavy rotation on BET and MTV. “Same Love,” a song and video in support of marriage equality, galvanized young fans and voters and led to a live studio performance on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. While on their 70-city, completely sold-out world tour supporting The Heist, they garnered attention in Rolling Stone, Billboard, NPR, TIME and GQ, with live performances on VH1, MTV, The Late Show with David Letterman, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, and Saturday Night Live.
