There is much in store and will be an immersive experience filled with art and music all weekend! Electro-soul and hip-hop producer Rhett Whatley


English musician Alexander Kotz known under the name “Elderbrook” has been creating music since 2015 and is based out of London in the UK. The beginning of his carer started when he was 16, he became a member of an indie band in which he participated until he was 19. At that point, he started singing and songwriting but it wasn’t until he began university that he developed his electronic style of music. School exposed him to many different styles of music and he was initially very interested in soulful hip-hop music. After graduating from University is when his “Elderbrook” debut took place, releasing the hit song and EP “Could.” This song would soon go on to become his first major hit and followed by the other two songs on the EP “Rewinding” and “How Many Times.”


Electro-soul and hip-hop producer Rhett Whatley is an American Atlanta-based artist who has been making music since 2014. He started just making beats in his bedroom and transformed into touring the country. He has a background in jazz guitar and always loved soulful hip-hop music that he incorporates into his electronic-styled music. Once he started releasing music, Philos Records got word of him almost immediately and signed him in February 2017. He then continued his daily bread project by moving to Denver to gain more experience and knowledge, all the while receiving over a million plays on Spotify. He now lives back in Atlanta and has been touring with the Dailybread project as well as a side project called “Cloud Conductor.”

Moore Kismet
