The Knocks are multiplatinum selling artists The Knocks have been hailed worldwide for a carefree electronic sound that freely draws from soul, funk, disco, hip hop, house, and pop. Comprised of James Patterson and Ben Ruttner, the NYC-based duo have unleashed a dizzying array of dance music for more than a decade, spanning two acclaimed albums, multiple EPs, collaborations with artists across the musical spectrum, high profile network TV appearances, and show stopping DJ sets and live performances all over the world.
Cycling through states of mind and fits of feeling, CANNONS ebb and flow between otherworldly electro-soundscapes and evocative vocal transmissions, layering breezy pop atop cinematic sonic architecture. The L.A. group â€” Michelle Joy , Ryan Clapham , and Paul Davis â€” physically incite body movement and mentally provoke thought. The trio have consistently enabled escape via their songs. Following a tireless grind, they quietly shook-up popular culture with their 2019 independent sophomore outing, Shadows. The single â€œFire For Youâ€ initially toppled The Hollywood Reporterâ€™s Top TV Songs Chart at #1 in the wake of a placement on NETFLIXâ€™s Never Have I Ever. The success translated to multiple radio formats as they clinched #1 on both Alternative and Triple A, earning them a 2022 iHeart Radio Award nomination for â€˜Best New Alternative Artist.â€™ With the song notably eclipsing 77 million Spotify streams, SiriusXM touted the band on the â€œClass of 2020,â€ while YouTube named CANNONS among its â€œArtists on the Rise.â€ Beyond inciting critical applause, they wowed audiences at Lollapalooza, Firefly, Outside Lands, and more. After amassing hundreds of millions of streams and earning acclaim from Consequence, OnesToWatch, LA Weekly, and more, the trio captivate like never before on their third full-length offering, Fever Dream , led by the singles â€œBad Dreamâ€ and â€œHurricane.â€
