About Thievery Corporation
in hustling and bustling Washington D.C., Thievery Corporation would be the brainchild of longtime musicians and world culture
samples Rob Garza and Eric Hilton. The two musicians met in D.C.'s thriving music scene, both attracted to the sounds of classical
jazz and bossa nova, musical influences that have defined and guided their musical pursuits for much of their musical career.
With the two being business oriented as well as accomplished musicians, they ventured into starting the Eighteenth Street
Lounge Music label, effectively putting their money where their music was as they ventured into one the greatest musical experiments
of a generation.
The duo immediately began turning heads right from the get go, with 1997 being the year of Thievery
Corporation as they released their first full length and sailed into the mainstream. The group would hit the road hard, touring
around the world as they released a steady stream of releases that gained both commercial and critical acclaim. The band also
found it had a penchant for collaboration, with guest spots for some of the most prominent vocalist and musicians in the world.
Emiliana Torrini and Pam Bricker would showcase their unique vocal talents on 2000's The Mirror Conspiracy. 2005's The Cosmic
Game picked up even more notables, including Lollapalooza founder and Jane's Addiction vocalist Perry Farrel, David Byrne,
and the Flaming Lips' Wayne Coyne.
At this point in the game Thievery Corporation had become a household name, headlining
some of the biggest festivals around the States including Chicago's Lollapalooza and California's Coachella Valley Music Festival.
They also used their musical star power to do good, recording a track for Silencio=Muerte: Red Hot + Latin, a compilation
album aimed at raising money to help in the fights against AIDS. With a non stop torrent of success, the band picked up their
first grammy nomination in 2008 for best recording package, and is showing no signs of slowing down as they have planted themselves
firmly into the canon of musical duo greats.
One of Thievery Corporation's most beloved
albums, The Mirror Conspiracy dropped in 2000 and was the band's first class ticket into the mainstream. The album introduced
the duo's unique but accessible sound to audiences around the world, with various tracks being featured in major motion pictures
including the 2004 classic Garden State and Tom Cruise's Vanilla Sky. The album pulled a respectable four stars from Allmusic
media, and was carried by a slew of singles including the band's most recognizable hit "Lebanese Blonde", Pam Bricker infused
"The Mirror Conspiracy", and Latin based "Le Monde".
The band's 2002 followup The Richest Man in Babylon experimented
with an even wider palette of musical styles, including dance, reggae, and Indian world music. Rolling Stone gave the album
four stars, and the BBC described the album as a maturation of their previous two albums and a symbol of their musical coming
of age. The album would hit the #9 and #2 spots on Billboard's Independent and Dance charts, respectively, carried by the
hits "Heaven's Gonna Burn Your Eyes", "Exilio", and title track "The Richest Man in Babylon".
band's label is named after Eighteenth Street Lounge, where owner Eric Hilton would meet music aficionado Rob Garza. The Lounge
was the birthplace of the duo's friendship, and thus, of Thievery Corporation.
The duo has shown no shyness towards
recording a variety of styles from a variety of cultures. Their lyrics contain words spoken or sung in English, Romanian,
Hindi, Portuguese, Persian, Spanish, and more.
