Indie-rock/pop band, The Roosevelts, have cultivated a sound that’s a little bit bluesy, a little bit pop and a little bit rock ‘n’ roll. When forced to give it a name, the boys will tell you it’s “harmony-driven American rock with a ‘70s sensibility.” Other tastemakers are describing their sound as “warm, rootsy pop”. The release of their first EP “Cold Sheets” in late 2013 garnered the attention of several music industry execs, prompting the band to move from Austin, TX to Nashville, TN. The release of their debut album in April 2016, The Greatest Thing You’ll Ever Learn, reached #5 on iTunes singer/songwriter charts, placing them among some of their earliest childhood musical heroes and inspirations. The band packed their schedule with a run of at-capacity shows with acts like Robert Earl Keen and Grace Potter, as well as festivals such as South by Southwest (SXSW) and Austin City Limits Festival. Birmingham native and lead guitarist, Jason Kloess, and new lead singer, Mitchell Kilpatrick, provide a rousing, dance-worthy compilation of songs and poignant tunes that leave concert-goers smiling and dancing in the aisles – making The Roosevelts a band that music fans of any genre can’t afford to miss.
