The Roosevelts
For fans of: Ryan Adams, Matt Nathanson, The Lumineers

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.

Sneaky Bones
Sneaky Bones is the brainchild of Matthew Bean, a Seattle-based multi-instrumentalist, songwriter, producer, and all-around giant. With the help of a talented rotating cast of collaborators, Bean has been slowly carving his folk vision into the textures of genre land. Warm acoustic instruments, heavy pedal steel, and lucid leads are the well-worn handle on Bean’s sharpest tool – his striking melodic, harmonic, and lyrical sensibilities.

On his sophomore release, High as the Stars (out Aug 9, 2017), Sneaky Bones covers a lot of ground. The tracks slide from ominously broken grooves, to traditional folk ballads, to bright pop, to otherworldly electrified bluegrass, to stick-click country, with the occasional delicate fingerpicking slipped in.

Bean has toured North America extensively and has written and released six records with various groups – from the harmony-laden folk duo The Dwells to the catchy anti-Donald-Trump-saxo-garage-punk of The Original Donald Trump – while defining his folk identity as Sneaky Bones. Aside from usually being the tallest person in the room, he almost always has the silliest grin on his face so if you catch a show, you can’t miss him.
