About Mark Ronson
Mark Ronson is an internationally renowned DJ and Academy-Award®-winning, seven-time-GRAMMY®-Award-winning and Golden Globe®-winning artist and producer.
Ronson spent the first eight years of his life growing up in London, England before moving with his family to New York City. Already a keen student of music, and a huge fan of hip hop, he was 16 when he first began creating mixtapes and trying his hand at DJing.
That early passion set him on a path to music production, recording and songwriting that has resulted in a career highlighted by work on a multi GRAMMY®-winning album by Amy Winehouse, as well as his own GRAMMY-winning, global smash hit with Bruno Mars, “Uptown Funk.” Along with releasing four successful albums under his own name, his resume includes production work for some of music’s biggest names, including Adele, Paul McCartney, Duran Duran and Lily Allen. More recently, he helmed Lady Gaga’s acclaimed fifth album, Joanne and Queens Of The Stone Age’s lauded Villains. In 2018 he released a string of singles with Diplo under the name Silk City, including the current world wide hit “Electricity” with Dua Lipa, which earned him a GRAMMY Award for “Best Dance Recording” in 2019.
He is a co-writer of the song “Shallow,” recorded by Lady Gaga and Bradley Cooper for the movie A Star Is Born, for which he earned an Academy Award® for “Best Original Song,” a Golden Globe® Award for “Best Song Written for a Motion Picture,” and 2 GRAMMY® Awards.
Most recently Mark collaborated with Miley Cyrus, Camila Cabello, Lykke Li, YEBBA and more on his fifth studio album Late Night Feelings, which was released in June to rave reviews.
He is currently based in Los Angeles where he operates his record label, Zelig Records, home to fast rising star King Princess. To date, Ronson has one Academy Award®, 7 GRAMMY® Awards, 2 Brit Awards, 1 Golden Globe® Award and 1 MTV VMA Award to his name.
About Anderson .Paak:
Born Brandon Paak Anderson in Oxnard, California, as a teen he played drums in his church band and later famously worked at a marijuana farm, all while honing his musical chops and in pursuit of his dreams. And while shining glimpses of his extraordinary talent were evident in his first incarnation as Breezy Lovejoy, it was fully realized in his transformation into Anderson .Paak, with his debut album Venice and a stellar six-song run on Dr. Dre’s certified Gold COMPTON album, that stoked anticipation for what would be the perfect storm of his sophomore release, 2016’s Malibu. The album was a sonic wonder met with universal rave reviews receiving GRAMMY® nods for Best New Artist and Best Urban Contemporary Album, nods for the BET Hip Hop Award’s Best New Hip-Hop Artist and the NME Award’s Best New Artist.
His 2018 release Oxnard marked a career high for him debuting as the #1 Independent album in the country according to Billboard as well as debuting at #5 on the Rap chart, #6 on the Hip Hop/R&B chart and #11 on the Top 200. The phenomenal album was executive produced by Dr. Dre and features the likes of hip-hop legends Kendrick Lamar, Snoop Dogg, J. Cole, Q-Tip, and Pusha T.
More recently .Paak had a monster single in “Bubblin” that saw a Jimmy Kimmel Live! performance and won him his first GRAMMY® for Best Rap Performance in 2019. He released his newest album Ventura that debuted at #4 on the Billboard Top 200 on April 12th via Aftermath Entertainment, exclusively distributed by 12 Tone Music, LLC. The project features Smokey Robinson, André 3000, Jazmine Sullivan, Brandy, Nate Dogg, Lalah Hathaway and Sonyae Elise. His Best Teef in the Game tour to support the album was sold out and included his first Madison Square Garden headline show and 24 other stops across the US and Canada.
About Lucky Daye:
Lucky early on in life discovered his love of music and natural gift for singing and songwriting in the musical melting pot that is New Orleans, where he was born. The devastation of Hurricane Katrina displaced his family and they ended up moving to the small town of Tyler, TX. Ultimately Lucky knew he wanted to pursue music so he moved to Atlanta for a brief stint and eventually ventured to Los Angeles to pursue his dream. After meeting D’Mile and working with him on what would become his debut album Painted (released in May), Lucky fully realized his voice and potential. His undeniable talent as a vocalist took shape and landed at him at his label home, Keep Cool, in partnership with RCA Records.
Lucky’s live show continues to gain new fans for the multi-talented singer-songwriter. His recent appearance on NPR’s Tiny Desk was notable, packing the small stage with a full 10-piece band and extended horn section, yet still allowing his incredible voice to cut through. Fans, peers and critics also saw Lucky perform at the 2019 BET Awards on the Music Matters stage where he delivered an electrifying performance of “Roll Some Mo” before he headed to his hometown of New Orleans to play at the 25th Anniversary Essence Festival. Additionally he has played other festivals including Something in The Water, Afropunk Atlanta and Lights On Festival. Lucky is currently on his first ever North American headlining tour, which will see him hit 25 cities across Canada and the US this fall.
Born and raised in LA, the genre-bending talent didn’t fully discover her artistic voice until attending Humboldt State University. After graduating from Humboldt, Dodgr took yet another step further into the “fish out of water” mentality, moving to Portland in pursuit of music despite the city’s known reluctance to hip-hop. Noticing a local scene beginning to grow, she quickly developed a loyal following whom she compares to the love of an “adoptive” family. Offering refreshing, genre-agnostic music, she became one of the city’s premiere talents, and eventually met fellow Portland artist Amine, who invited her to accompany him as a background vocalist during his first Fallon performance in 2016. Now a few years removed from the performance, Dodgr has grown her loyal audience exponentially, even boasting collaborations with Anderson .Paak and Portgual. The Man, among others. Dodging genres, labels, and even the stereotypical move back to LA, she dares to be different in the age of immediacy — a prideful testament to her resolute character and even more so, a reflection of Dodgr’s artistic integrity.
