The Whitefield Brothers are a German funk band. The band, which consists of brothers Jan and Max Weissenfeldt, was previously known as the "'Poets of Rhythm"' beginning in 1991.[1] Under this name, they were signed to the Quannum Projects label after they were discovered by Lyrics Born.[1] As the Whitefield Brothers, they released their debut album In the Raw in 2001 and their second album, Earthology, in 2010.[2] The making of Earthology took 15 years,[1][2] and the album received generally favorable reviews from music critics.[3]
