Pop-Rock band RAGS AND RICHES, based in Lexington, Kentucky is comprised of two members and brothers! Tanner and Peyton Whitt formed RAGS AND RICHES in 2017 and haven’t looked back. Over the last two years the brothers have been establishing and curating their unique craft and sound. In 2019 the dynamic duo released their debut single “Speed Of Sound” which saw an impressive 650k strems on Spotify and 500k Youtube views in less than 3 months!
A refreshing shot of adrenaline, RAGS AND RICHES dropped their newest EP titled “Arrival” that features a single of the same name that we can't get enough of. Known for their experimental tones, RAGS AND RICHES play with fusing different genres to make catchy tracks. “Arrival” is a motivation anthem for the underdogs. This song could pull you from a stressful or dark place and get you toe-tapping along to the lighthearted tune. Empowering and liberated, “Arrival” is a song for any occasion. RAGS AND RICHES know how to create music that their fans can relate and connect to. I highly recommend you check out this brand new track and the entire EP which feature other experimental hits like “X” and “War Cry”. RAGS AND RICHES are set to kick off their headlining tour, stay on the lookout!
