Not a guy but rather two guys, Lewis Del Mar is a New York-based electro-acoustic indie pop duo made up of Washington, D.C. transplants Danny Miller (singer/guitarist) and Max Harwood (drummer/producer). Having collaborated on and off since grade school, they formed the group in 2013 after relocating to Rockaway Beach, and named the project after their fathers (both named Lewis) and their coastal locale. Melodic and percussion-driven, and incorporating samples and manipulated sound, their sleek debut single, "Loud(y)," went viral in 2015, topping Hype Machine's Popular Tracks chart and appearing on multiple streaming charts. Sony Music released their four-track debut EP in early 2016. By the summer, "Loud(y)" had landed on the Billboard Alternative Songs chart, and another song from the EP, "Malt Liquor" hit the streaming charts. Their full-length debut, Lewis Del Mar, arrived in October 2016 and included those two songs plus eight previously unreleased tracks.
Anna Wise is a Grammy Award winning singer, songwriter, and performer based in Brooklyn, NY. Anna has garnered a dedicated following amongst musicians and music fans alike ever since her collaborations with Kendrick Lamar on good kid, m.A.A.d city (“Real,” “Bitch Don’t Kill My Vibe,” “Money Trees”), To Pimp a Butterfly (“These Walls,” “Institutionalized”) & untitled unmastered ("untitled 01 | 08.19.2014." & "untitled 05 | 09.21.2014."). Their song “These Walls” won the Grammy Award for Best Rap/Sung Collaboration at the 2016 Grammy’s.
In 2016 Anna entered into a different light, self releasing her first solo project, The Feminine: Act I. The EP, described as both outspoken and therapeutic, lead Vogue to describe Anna as "Trailblazing Feminist Pop".
As a staunch supporter of independent artists in the entertainment industry, Anna is hands on with other mediums as well, creating works of video, photo and other various design to accompany her music. Anna also performs alongside her band, Sonnymoon, with whom she has released three albums, Golden Age, Sonnymoon, and The Courage of Present Times. Anna has shared the stage with artists such as Kendrick Lamar, Kimbra, The Roots, Third Story, Givers, Flying Lotus, Bilal, Teebs, Tei Shi, and more.
