The story about Marcus&Martinus begins in 2002, when they were born on February 21st. Raised in the small town of Trofors in Northern Norway, they both enjoyed singing and entertaining from an early age. At the age of nine they wrote their first song «To Dråper Vann» and entered the Norwegian singing contest MGPjr in 2012. The boys charmed all of Norway, and ended up winning the contest live on national TV.
Their debut album «Hei» came out in 2015, including the massive hit song «Elektrisk». The album holds the record of staying the longest on top 10 on the charts, with more than 66 coherent weeks!
As their fan base grew, both in Norway and abroad, Marcus&Martinus released their first English single «Girls» featuring Madcon in 2016, which went straight to #1 on the Norwegian charts. Later in 2016 they released their second studio album, this time in English, named «Together». The album marked the start of a new era in their career, and was followed by their first ever arena tour. The Together Tour sold out arenas in both Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland! They also played at the Nobel Peace Price concert, which was broadcasted all over the world.
The book about Marcus&Martinus and their life came in 2016, a biography called «Vår Historie» («Our Story»), and was followed by the book «Vår Verden» («Our World») with exclusive photos from the previous year in 2017.
A film crew followed Marcus&Martinus around for two years, and the result was the full-length documentary «Sammen om Drømmen» («Together about the dream») that premiered the same weekend in Norway, Sweden, Denmark and Finland – setting records for most tickets sold for a documentary in the opening weekend ever in Norway. The film won an Amanda (Norwegian film award) for favorite film, voted by the audience in 2017.
In 2017, Marcus&Martinus won «Artists of the year» at the prestigious awards Spellemann (the Norwegian Grammy), as the youngest artists ever, for the impressive year they’d had.
When working with their third album, «Moments», Marcus&Martinus collaborated with songwriters and producers that have previously worked with artists like Justin Bieber, Lady Gaga and Jason Derulo, creating a more grown up sound for the 10 songs that ended up on the album.
The first single of the album was «Like it Like it» featuring the American rapper Silentó, and was followed by the sweet «First Kiss» and the catchy «Dance With You» in the summer of 2017, before the full-length album came in November.
The title reflects on how Marcus&Martinus always wants to make memorable moments together – both as brothers and together with their fans that means so much for them. Their first ever European tour naturally got the name «Moments Tour», and has 26 stops in 14 different countries in 2018. Touring and meeting old and new fans is amongst Marcus&Martinus’ definite favorite things to do, and there is no doubt that you will see more of them in the months to come!
It’s all about creating new moments together.
