Gold
Gold
The name GOLD comes from recognizing the fortune of living through my second golden age of artistic community in NYC. A golden age being a time of collaboration, inspiration, support and love for human creativity and community. It's GOLD and I know it. Crossing paths with these women, all who have their own artistic and musical projects, has been such a fortune. We cross pollinate and make lots of different musics together and with others and it's shiny and bright and integral...and you can't f*ck with it. It's solid while it's here.
XP
XP
Before he was Known as Xperience, Tyler Andrews grew up with his Mother in the Midwest. She moved them from city to city in search of good work, before eventually settling closer to family. Although born in Olympia, WA, Tyler spent his younger years growing up in the streets of Inkster, MI and Detroit, MI, before he and his Mother relocated again to Indiana. Here in the streets of Hammond, Gary, and finally East Chicago is where he would get an education in struggle and hustle. In an attempt to save her son from the cold and relentless grasp of the block, his Mother kept him in church, where he eventually became the drummer with the occasional singing solo. Taking what he had learned in the streets and infusing it with gospel, Tyler returned to the State of Washington to pursue a career in music as Xperience. Now residing in Seattle, XP has quickly become one of the most well-known and recognizable artists of his kind throughout the Northwest with his unique versatility and strong musical influence. In 2011, he was crowned with Olympia’s Best Readers Pick, Artist of the Year, and Album of the Year. With a few small west coast and south west tours, and a national tour with Atmosphere under his belt, XP has also been on two Macklemore & Ryan Lewis tours with plans for more. He has since continued to release notable new music independently and with other collaborators. He was featured on Macklemore’s album ‘Language of My World,’ and has worked with artists like Casual & A-Plus of Hieroglyphics, Grayskul of RhymeSayers Ent., Prince Po' of Organized Konfusion, Aesop Rock, Grammy Finalistic Q Dot, Bizarre of D12 and More. He is part of the Northwest Hip-Hop crew Oldominion, working with the likes of Onry Ozzborn & JFK of Grayskul, Sleep of The Chicharones, Smoke, Candidt and many others.
ROOKE5
ROOKE5
ROOKE5, pronounced Rooks, is an independent hip hop artist born and raised in Colorado. Heavily influenced by a variety of genres, ROOKE5 draws inspiration from the likes of anyone from Sam Cooke and Curtis Mayfield to more recent artists such as Murs and Grieves. Not only does it bring variety to his music but also a creative balance between blues and modern hip hop.

Born in the town of Loveland, Colorado, Luke Whitrock (aka ROOKE5) has always been business and music oriented. Working from the youngest age he possibly could, Luke developed a strong work ethic in every aspect of his life. At the age of 14, he was uprooted from his hometown and relocated to El Paso, Texas where he attended high school and college. It was in El Paso that Luke found his passion for music and took the first steps in pursuing music as a potential career. He began writing over popular instrumentals ranging from Rick Ross to Kanye West, and recording in the home studio of a co-worker. Needless to say Texas was a large influence on his musical perspective. In the spring of 2010, he traveled back to Colorado. The trip marked a new beginning. ROOKE5 has played everywhere from local spots like Cervantes in Denver, The Woodcellar in Evergreen and The Aggie Theater in Fort Collins to playing a Lollapalooza after party in Chicago in 2012.

ROOKE5 has had the privilege of sharing the stage with nationally touring acts such as Zion I, The Grouch & Eligh, Madchild, Amp Live, PROF, Grieves, Blueprint, Gift of Gab, Sol, Pigeon John, Sam Lachow, Hasan Salam, The MC Type, Brothers From Another, Sam I Am as well as many other local acts. Rooted in the pursuit of an energetic environment, his music seeks to ignite the crowd while sharing in their relationships in life, past and present. Together we rise!
