No longer an undiscovered group enjoyed by locals, Seattle-bred electronic duo ODESZA saw massive success in 2015. The group consists of friends Harrison Mills and Clayton Knight. The pair first met while attending Western Washington University and released their debut album, “Summer’s Gone,” in 2012.  ODESZA followed the release of “Summer’s Gone” with countless EPs, a sold out 28 city tour in 2014 and a second album, “In Return,” in 2015. Their comeback record debuted at #1 on the Billboard Electronic Chart Top ten in seven12 countries outside the U.S.

Following the release of “In Return,” ODESZA began performing at numerous festivals including Sasquatch!, Coachella, SXSW, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Outside Lands and others.  Their festival sets are a favorite for festival goers, and have allowed them to perform not only around the US but around the world. In December of 2015, ODESZA’s “Say My Name (RAC Remix)”  was nominated for the Best Remixed Recording Grammy.

ODESZA is known for their high energy concerts. At a typical ODESZA show, one can expect loud music, good vibes and colorful light shows in tune to the music. Their vision is to produce concerts that help their fans experience their music how they intended it to be. In Seattle alone, ODESZA played three sold-out shows in 2015. Fans snatched up tickets, showing huge demand for a pair that struggled to fill up small venues just a couple years ago. A favorite to many, ODESZA has continued to climb the charts and has brought fresh electronic music into the homes of many.
