Ryan Lewis

Biography

Producer who spent some time working with Macklemore since 2008 on his strikes like ‘Thrift Store,’ ‘Equal Like,’ and ‘Can’t Keep Us.’ He performed electric guitar in his teenage years, at exactly the same time developing a interest for picture taking. Macklemore employed him to capture some photos, which is the way they began collaborating. Furthermore to dealing with Macklemore, he provides produced his very own work, and provides performed it around Washington and North California. He was raised with two old sisters called Teresa and Laura. He helped generate the video to “Thrift Store,” attempting, in vain, to persuade Sir Mix-a-Lot to produce a cameo in it.
