Southern-Raised Indie Rockers The Roosevelts Channel James Taylor, Ryan Adams, CCR and Joe Cocker On April 22 Debut 'The Greatest Thing You'll Ever Learn'
Band Joins Robert Earl Keen For January Tour
Bound by a love for James Taylor & Ryan Adam's keen lyricism, the feel good vibes of Creedence Clearwater Revival, the grooves of John Mayer and Joe Cocker's heartfelt soul, The Roosevelts -- Jason Kloess and James Mason -- channel the need for personal connection, back it with jubilant musicianship and meld it together for a 10-track debut, 'The Greatest Thing You'll Ever Learn,' out April 22.
Nashville by way of Austin, TX, The Roosevelts showcase their strengths as a unit: smart, soulful grooves with crisp harmonies and sweetly infectious refrains. The record is rock - with some mandolin - and touts pure emotion, engaging audiences on a personal and musical level.
"After seeing the Roosevelts perform in Austin I became a die-hard fan," shares BMI VP of Writer Publisher Relations Jody Williams. "I haven't heard any new music since then that hits all my buttons like The Roosevelts. The songs, the show, the attitude, the audience they draw, all of it."
The band's charismatic ability to connect with fans led to jump starting the year with two sold-out shows in Washington D.C. Booked by The Billions Coorporation, they'll continue their ascent into 2016 opening shows for Robert Earl Keen in the Southeast in January and then returning home to Austin, TX for SXSW.
