Ryan Caraveo’s goal is simple; be a voice for the silenced. His debut album Swings was released in December 2014 and set the tone for his presence in the Seattle music scene. With the success of songs like “Paradise”, “Godmode” and “Where the Sun Sets”, the infectious energy and wide appeal of his brand of hip-hop has connected him to not only young listeners, but also gained him the respect of older heads.

Having shared stages with K-Flay, Big K.R.I.T. and Vic Mensa, Ryan began to step into his own in 2016. He released his current LP, Maybe They Were Wrong, along with headlining packed-out shows in Seattle at The Crocodile, Neumos and The Showbox. His growing presence led to invitations to perform at festivals such as Sasquatch, as well as the mainstage of Bumbershoot alongside industry notables Anderson.Paak, Flatbush ZOMBIES, Run the Jewels and Macklemore & Ryan Lewis.

Flanked on stage by DJ Vega, the duo bring an electric, high-energy performance that satisfies the established fans and converts the first-timers. After performances, Ryan prides himself on taking the time to meet with each and every fan and reciprocating the love received while he is on stage.
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!
