University of the Pacific Spring Concert
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. 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 top 40 on the Billboard Top 100 chart and is still climbing, with a wildly popular music video (20 million+ views on YouTube) on heavy rotation on BET and MTV2. "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 have garnered attention in Rolling Stone, Billboard, NPR, TIME and GQ, with live performances on VH1 and an upcoming feature on Late Night with Jimmy Fallon.
Born in Washington, DC and raised in 8 cities across 2 continents, Ryan Leslie was a senior at Harvard by the age of 19. He spent the last seven years producing records for a myriad of artists and releasing 2 award-winning albums of his own. Ryan Leslie's live show is explosive, channeling of the energy of a young James Brown mixed with the swagger of a modern day Marvin Gaye. Fusing thick analogue synths, heavy drums and lush vocal harmonies, he performs songs that he really loves, stories told in a way only he can tell them.
