2CELLOS is a Croatian cello duo including two classically trained musicians, Luka Sulic and Stjepan Hauser. Their albums are released by Sony Masterworks and consist of instrumental arrangements made up of popular pop and rock songs. The two met during a master class in Croatia after years of studying music abroad. Their first hit was a cover of Michael Jackson’s “Smooth Criminal” that they posted to YouTube, which received over three million views in just two weeks. Their debut self-titled album was released in 2011 following 2CELLOS signing to Sony Masterworks and included covers of songs by U2, Guns N’ Roses, Nine Inch Nails, Sting, Coldplay, Nirvana, Muse, Kings of Leon and more popular artists.
2CELLOS only chose songs to cover on their album which were playable to two cellos. Later that year, Elton John asked 2CELLOS to join him on a leg of his summer tour, greatly contributing to their mainstream popularity. Following their performances with Elton John, 2CELLOS was booked to perform at iTunes Music Festival in London. 2CELLOS continued to release their unique take on cover songs by popular artists, then in 2013, they released their second album, titled In2ition, which featured a variety of artists contributing to their tracks, including Elton John, Lang Lang, Nava Rivera, Steve Via, Sky Ferreira and Zucchero. The album featured more popular songs covered by the two cellists and added instrumentals from other artists, such as a cover of AC/DC’s “Highway to Hell” with Steve Vai, Coldplay’s “Clocks” with Lang Lang, Muse’s “Supper Massive Black Hole” with Rivera, Karl Jenkins’ “Benedictus” and “Oh Well” with Elton John.
Although the album was a hit, the two continues to release more songs on their YouTube channel, like AC/DC’s “Thunderstruck”. 2CELLOS released their third album, Celloverse, in 2015 and launched a world tour in support of the album.
