Review: "Wisdom" - RAGS AND RICHES

“Wisdom” by RAGS AND RICHES is a powerful testament to the duo’s growing mastery of their art form. The Kentucky-born brothers Tanner and Peyton Whitt deliver an emotional rollercoaster that's both soul-stirring and invigorating, aptly reflecting their journey and musical ambitions. The song shines as an anthem of hope that touches the essence of the human condition, especially following the tumultuous events of the past few years. Tanner's revelation about rewriting the track multiple times until they “had it” speaks volumes about their dedication and commitment to their craft, the blend of this perseverance and raw talent that shines through every harmony and lyric of this inspiring piece.

Brimming with a sound that is both contemporary and timeless, the song kicks off with a melodic resonance that tugs at the heartstrings. The opening chords set a reflective tone, leading into a chorus that swells with both emotion and empowerment. The production quality is top-notch, providing a clean yet intricate backdrop for the brothers' poignant harmonies. Lyrically, “Wisdom” speaks to the soul. Each verse conjures images of struggle and triumph, a balance that the Whitt brothers navigate with an astute sense of storytelling. Their voice delivers a message of comfort to dreamers and fighters; those looking for a sign to hold on a little longer. It’s a universal call to embrace the wisdom we all hold within, urging listeners to face life's challenges with heads held high and hearts alight.

RAGS AND RICHES have garnered five million-plus career streams and significant video views, demonstrating that they are not just another drop in the ocean of alt-pop music. Their debut single, “Speed of Sound” was released in 2019, garnering close to one million streams. Performing in over 300 shows across 40 states with well-known artists like Smash Mouth and Fitz & The Tantrum, RAGS AND RICHES have won several awards, including a Josie Music Award for Pop Artist of the Year. Looking ahead to 2024, RAGS AND RICHES have a fantastic year of performances planned, from the Lovin’ Life to the Backwoods music festivals. RAGS AND RICHES are musical trailblazers who push boundaries in alternative pop, inspiring millions to yearn for greater heights.
