The Formative Years
Odesza, also stylized as ODESZA consists of Clayton Knight and Harrison Mills. The two met at the Western Washington University during their freshmen year. They had different educational backgrounds too. It not until their senior year, 2012, that they teamed up and began to produce music together for the first time.
In September of the same year, they came out with their first album titled “Summer’s Gone.” In November, ODESZA went on to perform their first live show when they opened for Beat Connection and Teen Daze. The duo had begun to make some noise online and it wasn’t long before their music had hit the one million mark on SoundCloud. They followed that up by releasing their debut EP titled “My Friends Forever” in the year 2013.
Success Comes Calling
ODESZA released their second album “In Return” on September 19, 2014. The record went on to peak at the first spot on the US Top Dance/ Electronic Albums and at the eighth position on the US Independent Albums chart. It also peaked at the forty second position on the US Billboard 200.
ODESZA also went on a tour with Pretty Lights as an opening act in the fall of 2013. That was followed by the two hitting the road for their debut headlining road trip in 2014. They went on another tour starting October, 2014. That road trip saw them perform across North America with twenty eight of those shows completely selling-out.
They spent the next few years on the road and undertaking other ventures. In 2015, they began the Foreign Family Collective, a channel for upcoming artists to use in order to release one-off singles. They also went on the “In Return Fall Tour” in late 2015 and it was another completely sold-out affair.
