In an open letter on his website, Macklemore describes disappearing into the wilderness of America’s Pacific North-West to embrace the recording process. “I had to figure out how to use my voice again. So, we went ghost. The Irish Goodbye, into the woods, in the dead of winter. We bought a 1985 Suburban, loaded up some equipment and left town.”
Joining Macklemore & Ryan Lewis this July will be none other than Sydney’s hometown hero’s Thundamentals. Bringing their jaw dropping live show and groove laden tunes,Thundamentals will treat fans to their eclectic production and mix of easy going, catchy and thought provoking lyrics.
