An international sensation since 2011's rendition of Michael Jackson's "Smooth Criminal" reached video viral fame on YouTube, Croatian cellists Luka Šulić and Stjepan Hauser, together known as 2CELLOS, have since created a name for themselves with their electric and dynamic playing style. Having amassed over 830 million views on YouTube in the years since, 2CELLOS have taken the cello to unimagined heights as their signature style breaks down the boundaries between genres of music, from classical and film music to pop and rock. The release of Let There Be Cello marks 2CELLOS' fifth studio album in the wake of their 2011 self-titled debut, IN2ITION, CELLOVERSE and SCORE, all available on Sony Music Masterworks.
Known for their electric live performances, 2CELLOS have sold out shows across the globe at historic venues including New York City's Radio City Music Hall, London's Royal Albert Hall and the Sydney Opera House, and most recently sold over 150,000 tickets on their 28-date U.S. SCORE tour. The duo has performed alongside musical greats Steven Tyler, Andrea Bocelli, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Queens of the Stone Age and George Michael, to name a few, and was hand-picked by Sir Elton John to perform both as an opener as well as part of the iconic singer's live band. 2CELLOS truly know no limits when it comes to performing live, appearing multiple times on the TODAY show, Ellen DeGeneres, The Tonight Show, The Bachelor Live Wedding Special and more, in addition to being the first instrumentalists featured on the award-winning television series Glee.
