Though it’s virtually impossible to classify the thoroughly unique entity that is The Roosevelts, this statement by guitarist Jason Kloess certainly tells part of the story. As one half of the electric duo along with singer James Mason, the two brothers in song – not blood, though maybe beards – have been playing together for years and cultivating a sound that’s a little indie-folk, a little bit alt-country, and little bit pop-rock. Most importantly, it's just heartfelt, genuine music that belongs to them alone, not any genre. It's the New Americana.

Kloess and Mason bonded in Austin over a mutual love of the same influences: the songwriting of James Taylor, the lyricism of Ryan Adams, the heartfelt soul of Joe Cocker. Their collection of songs showcases their strengths as a unit with sweetly infectious refrains that could fill living rooms just as easily as stadiums.

The band has built a devoted fan base – one they make sure to chat with on a first-name basis out in the crowd as much as from the stage. For their fans, the healing comes in the music – cathartic, joyful, full of life and light. It’s unique, it’s The Roosevelts, it’s southern raised indie-rock.
