With an astute, intelligent and creative sensibility, plus the kind of hooks that hip ohop has been hanging out for for years comes Seattle duo Macklemore and Ryan Lewis.
Macklemore aka Ben Haggerty works with Ryan Lewis (producer), Andrew Joslyn (violin), Owour Arunga (trumpet), Zach Fleury (drums, guitar, bass), and Noah Goldberg (piano) to create a wholly rich and satisfying brand of Rap music. Macklemore released his debut album titled ‘The Heist’ on October 9th 2012, which reached #1 on iTunes in the US and #1 on the Australian iTunes Hip-Hop/Rap Charts.
Proving that interesting and intelligent voices can find an audience without label support, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are paving the way for a new generation of artists and gaining attention from a wide variety of press including Hip Hop heavyweights XXL and left-slanted major American news argent Huffington Post.
Don’t miss these shows, they are destined to be special; the first glance at an artist poised to take the world by storm.
NOTE: The shows in Brisbane and Melbourne have recently had a change of venue. All tickets previously purchased remain valid for the new venues.
