Those of you familiar with Ryan Lewis and Macklemore’s anti-consumerist super hit “Thrift Shop” might not be aware that this blonde lyrical juggernaut has been in the music business for over ten years. In the mean time, he’s produced deeply personal and soulful rap songs, reflecting on his triumphs and struggles. He’s also produced a song written by unicorns to be performed at an audience of the Gods. That song is called “And We Danced.”
