Describing their sound as "rock - with some mandolin," Nashville-based duo the Roosevelts got their start in Austin, Texas in 2012.
Longtime friends and collaborators James Mason
and Jason Kloess began developing a warm, rootsy pop sound that pulled from influences like James Taylor
, Ryan Adams
, and Joe Cocker
. Their 2013 debut EP, Cold Sheets, boasted strong harmonies and soaring melodies that were easy on the ears. By 2015, they had decided to make the jump to Nashville and signed a deal with Tone Tree Music
to make a full album. Led by the soulful lead single "Peaches," the Roosevelts' debut LP, The Greatest Thing You'll Ever Learn, was released in March 2016. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
