THE ROOSEVELTS
THE ROOSEVELTS
We are The Roosevelts: America's Own Indie-Rock Act

The Roosevelts guitarist Jason Kloess 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 singer James Mason, 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.
THE BANTER
The Banter is music from the inspirations of Kim Capria and all she experiences. She writes from the heart, and takes inspiration from artist all around her to bring her music to life and present it to the world.

You can find Kim playing anything from solo acoustic shows to full band shows in which the full concept of The Banter is portrayed.

Two singles have been released late 2016, Ms. Loneliness and Mason Jar. You can expect the release of the EP Stuck In Between early 2017.
DIRTY SUNSET
Dirty Sunset is a four-piece indie folk-rock band from Phoenix, AZ. An energetic live show that features original music with powerful vocals, interesting melodies, and violin-centric riffs that are sure to entertain. Stay tuned for new songs coming in 2016!
