We are The Roosevelts: America’s Own Indie-Rock Act

The Roosevelts lead singer James Mason muses on the birth of their name:

“It was Presidents’ Day. It was our first day in the studio. We had the songs, but
we didn’t have a name. There were two of them, and two of us. – I like to think
they would have been fans of our music.”

As one half of the electric duo along with lead guitarist Jason Kloess, the two
brothers – in song, not blood (though maybe beards) – carved a distinctive niche
on the renowned live music scene of Austin, Texas, before their recent move to
the music industry’s “third coast” – Nashville, Tennessee. Together, the
songsmiths cultivated a sound that’s a little bluesy, a little bit folky, and a little bit
rock ‘n’ roll. Sure, there’s some mandolin in there, but most importantly, it’s just
heartfelt, genuine music that belongs to them alone, not any genre. When forced
to give it a name, the boys will tell you it’s “harmony-driven American rock with a
70s sensibility.”

Still, some tastemakers are describing their sound as “warm, rootsy pop.”
Ultimately, you might have to decide for yourself.

The Roosevelts are a “live” band if there ever was one. 2016 found The
Roosevelts completing a run of at-capacity tour dates and one-nighters with
Robert Earl Keen, Green River Ordinance, and Grace Potter; a featured spot at
the BMI Songwriters Festival in Key West; and hard-earned feature spots at
world-famous, tastemaker festivals South by Southwest (SXSW) and Austin City
Limits Festival.

Their show provides a rousing, dance-worthy compilation of songs, but also
features poignant tunes that scale the depth of their personality and
communicate their story with remarkable power. Having a charismatic ability to
connect with fans and a delightful set of songs, concert-goers can’t help but smile
– making The Roosevelts a band that music fans of any genre can’t afford to
miss.
