More About Wanz:
With humble beginnings performing soulful renditions of “Jeremiah Was a Bullfrog” on the school playground, Michael Wansley developed an affinity for music at an early age, performing wherever he could for anyone who would listen.

As he worked towards his degree in music education, the newly nicknamed “Wanz” started his first band, Central Connection, eventually performing as a savvy stage man in groups such as The Ghetto Monks and Life Ring — soon sharing the stage with artists like Joe Williams, Bobby McFerrin, and Dizzy Gillepsie.

It was only a matter of time before Wanz grabbed the national spotlight.

Rising hip-hop duo Macklemore & Ryan Lewis recruited Wanz for a hook on their song about shopping for second-hand clothes, a humble and forward- thinking track against the traditionally flashy hip-hop status quo. Partly thanks to Wanz’s unforgettable hook, “Thrift Shop” quickly climbed the Billboard charts before landing at number one and holding that spot for six weeks total, certifying the single as seventimes platinum in the United States. Wanz now tours the world with Macklemore and Ryan Lewis, charming fans from all walks of life with his captivating vocals and unparalleled stage presence.

Recent performances include Saturday Night Live, Jimmy Fallon, David Letterman Ellen, CBS and festivals such as South by Southwest and Bonnaroo, among others. “Thrift Shop” has also received nominations for the MTV Video Music Awards in both the United States and Europe as well as the American Music Awards and others.

Earlier this year, Wanz brought us ‘The Christmas Song’, debuted on Jimmy Fallon after a performance with The Roots; the song conveys the joy of this Christmas classic to the beat of his signature dance grooves.
