The Roosevelts are craftsmen, specializing in heartfelt songs with real guts. The band is breaking out of Austin, TX with their rhythmic Americana-pop.

Founders James Mason and Jason Kloess began writing songs together in Austin in 2008, having moved to the capital city from Houston and Birmingham, respectively. For years, the pair whipped up sweaty crowds in dance halls and fraternity houses with covers on the weekends to pay the bills, while building their original repertory on the side.

Inspired by the pop singer-songwriter explosion of their formative years, namely Ryan Adams and Matt Nathanson, and modern folk-rock, the duo set out to create something current and classic with The Roosevelts. Armed with an arsenal of songs, they enlisted producer Dwight Baker, who steered organic pop/rock records for Brandi Carlile, Alpha Rev, and Bob Schneider, to guide their sonic vision.
The result is the Cold Sheets EP, which will see its national release this Fall. The 6-song set tugs at the heartstrings while drummer JJ Johnson (John Mayer, Tedeschi Trucks) and bassist Dave Monsey (Fiona Apple, Edie Brickell) maintain a steady, driving pulse.

Fashion and music monthly, Tribeza, comments: Poised between the quiet tenderness of My Morning Jacket and the ballads of John Mayer, Mason and Kloess spin musical narratives of heartbreak and longing.
