Macklemore & Ryan Lewis Fight for Marriage Equality on “Same Love” (Listen)Posted by Nathan S. on 07/19/12 | Filed under Macklemore, Ryan Lewis
So props to Macklemore and Ryan Lewis for taking a stance like this, and doing it in a way that sounds pretty damn good at the same time. "Same Love" is being released in via Sub Pop Records as a limited run 7? vinyl on July 31, all proceeds will benefit marriage equality in Washington State.
On a related but completely separate note, if you're looking for examples of indie artists succeeding on a major label level, Macklemore and Ryan Lewis are laying down the blueprint. While they're far from household names, they're still embarking on a world tour and I've got a feeling their debut album "The Heist" is going to surprise a lot of people with the numbers it does.
