Brothers, Tanner and Peyton Whitt, perform as the adrenalized American alt-pop duo Rags and Riches, and they always aim to bring hope and inspire a generation of dreamers. The Lexington, KY natives released their debut single, 'Speed of Sound" in 2019 and lit the spark for a wildfire breakout with "SOS" reachign over 915K+ streams and 525K+ video views.

The title of their award winning song is "Talk" and their first time win at The Josie Music Awards has a lot of people "talking" about the incredible level of success they have experienced in the past four years!

The two man crew has performed 250+ shows in 40 states including tour support for Smash Mouth, Fitz and the Tantrums, Judah & The Lion, Durry and Leah Marlene. In 2022, they won 2 Lexington Music Awards for Pop Artist of the Year and Song of the Year "Outlaw" and have impressively clocked in over 5MIL+ streams and over 2.4MIL + video views in just 4 years.

They are known as being really great guys as well and supporters of other Kentucky musicians in both their words and actions.

A fixture in the music community they always put on a great show for their adoring fans - and those fans know the words - to everyone one of their high energy, inspirational and motivational songs.

Their debut album "Always Gold" was released in June 2022 via Sonablast! Records and impressively received 1.4MIL+ streams in it's first week. With their current explosive success - it is clear these determined brothers are rising to the top!
