You know Wanz. You've heard him. He is the unforgettable voice on the 10-million-plus selling single, "Thrift Shop" by Macklemore and Ryan Lewis. ("I'm gonna pop some tags, only got twenty dollars in my pocket...")
Recently, Wanz (Michael Wansley) came back to his old stomping grounds, Central Washington University, to share what he has learned over the years, what it was like to go on a world tour with Macklemore, and the very real challenges that he is faced with now that the Thrift Shop ride is a few years on.
Those in the audience remarked that they were blown away by Wanz's honesty, and by his willingness to share his time and experience with young musicians looking to make it in a competitive industry.
