rags and riches music

rags and riches

Tanner and Peyton aren't just brothers making music—they're dreamers, creators, and trailblazers. And as they continue to rise, one thing is certain: their journey is just beginning.

Brothers, Tanner and Peyton Whitt, performing as the adrenalized alt-pop duo RAGS AND RICHES, aim to bring hope and inspire a generation of dreamers. Hailing from Lexington, Kentucky, these brothers aren't just making music—they're crafting anthems that ignite souls. From the moment they unleashed their debut single, "Speed of Sound” in 2019, the world took notice. With over 915K+ streams and 525K+ video views for "SOS," they set the stage for an explosive breakout unlike any other.

​Picture this: 250+ shows, 40 states, and the adrenaline rush of sharing stages with legends like Smash Mouth, Fitz & The Tantrums, and Judah & The Lion. It's not just about the music; it's about connecting with audiences on a deeper level, leaving them energized and inspired. When the duo isn’t rocking stages—they're smashing records too. Winning a Josie Music Award for Pop Artist of the Year, 2 Lexington Music Awards for Pop Artist of the Year & Song of the Year, clocking in over 5MIL+ career streams, and racking up 2.4MIL+ video views all in just 5 short years. They truly are a force to be reckoned with.

​Their debut album, "Always Gold," dropped in June 2022 via SonaBlast! Records, and the response was nothing short of mind-blowing. With 1.4MIL+ streams in its first week, it's clear that their sound resonates with fans on a cosmic level. But perhaps the most thrilling chapter yet? The release of their 8-track EP, "I NEED A HOLIDAY," in December 2023. With 1.2 million streams in its debut week, it's a testament to their raw talent and infectious energy. And let's talk about their playlist prowess in 2023. Landing on Apple Music's coveted New In Alternative with “Hello, Goodbye” and snagging a spot on Spotify's Nu Disco playlist with "Flavor," they continue to push boundaries and redefine the alt-pop landscape.
