Benjamin Hammond Haggerty (also known as Macklemore) is a multi-platinum and GRAMMY® award-winning artist born and raised in Seattle, Washington.

In the industry since the early 2000s, his music career took off in 2012 after the release of his album with artist Ryan Lewis titled The Heist, which charted at number 2 on the Billboard 200 with smash-hit singles “Thrift Shop” and “Can’t Hold Us.”

His worldwide success has totaled roughly 13.5 billion combined streams to date with his music videos collectively viewed over 5 billion times.

This newest release, BEN, is the artist’s self-titled third studio album.

Taking inspiration for the music from his introspection during the global pandemic in 2020, the artist shares: “This mandatory pause and the time created a level of intimacy that might not have been there if the world had continued to operate how it was.”

As part of THE BEN TOUR, in partnership with PLUS1, the artist will also be donating $1 per ticket to Bridges – Seattle Alternative Peer Group to support their work mentoring youth in recovery.
