Born in February 2002, Marcus & Martinus was born and raised in the small town in Northern Norway, Trofors. From an early age the boys enjoyed singing and entertaining, and at the age of nine they wrote their first song ‘’To Dråper Vann’’ and entered the national singing contest, MGPjr. With their magnetic stage presence and the catchy song, the boys charmed all of Norway, and ended up winning the contest on live TV on September 2012 at the age of 10.
As their fan base grew, both in Norway and abroad, they boys wanted to expand their reach by releasing their first single in English. On May 2016, they released the smash hit ‘’Girls’’ featuring Madcon, and the song went straight to #1 on all the Norwegian charts. ‘’Girls’ was then followed by the singles “Heartbeat”, “I Don’t Wanna Fall in Love” and the dance hit ‘’Light It Up’’ featuring Jamaican artist Samantha J.
It’s simply not possible to talk about Marcus & Martinus without mentioning their extremely loyal fans, who’s given themselves the name “MM’ers”. They have made Marcus & Martinus the biggest Scandinavian music sensation anyone has seen in years.
The brothers’ second album is called “Together”, and the title marks the incredible journey Marcus & Martinus have had together so far. Both the two of them as brothers, but also with the fans. It’s an album specially dedicated to the fans, made for the fans and together with the fans. “Together” is their first full-length English album, which means the start of a new era in their career.
“Together” debuted on #1 on both Norwegian and Swedish charts, #6 in Finland and #11 in Denmark!
In addition to the album release, the boys are going on their first ever arena tour, the ‘’Together Tour’’ with several sold out shows. First show to be announced was Stockholm Globe and it sold out in only 14 minutes!
And as that was not enough, they released their biography ‘’Vår Historie’’ and announced the release of their full-length documentary, that will have a theatrical release all over Scandinavia in 2017. But their biggest milestone of 2016, will be when they are playing at the Nobel Peace Prize Concert!
The story about Marcus & Martinus is a story about two very normal Norwegian boys that turned into a huge teenage pop sensation in no time. There’s nothing stopping them now! Their story is far from over.
