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

The Roosevelts lead singer James Mason 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 lead guitarist Jason Kloess, 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.
Ruby & The Reckless
Ruby & The Reckless
Ruby & The Reckless is a band out of Austin TX that is led by violin prodigy/singer-songwriter Ruby Jane. "A psych-jamming, darkly optimistic, alt-hooky, fiddlin' mind f**k." - Tour Worthy Magazine
Ruby and The Reckless have received the prestigious Black Fret grant and have finished working on their debut album "In My Head" recorded in Austin’s own Bubble Studio with renowned producer Frenchie Smith (Gary Clark Jr., JET, Santana, Wild Child, Trail of The Dead). Haunting lullabies accompanied by the nation’s best in violin performance, tracks “In My Head” and “Rainbows,” speak volume to the group’s ability to redefine modern indie rock. With their combination of extraordinary musical abilities, beautiful harmonies, and hooky choruses, they are creating a new sound that breaches the limits of musicianship in modern day pop music.

Willie Nelson: "She makes the violin sing. I love her!"

Lady Gaga: "I never knew someone could shred a fiddle like that."

Marty Stuart: "She can melt a rock."

Ray Benson: "She was a wonderfully talented kid who is now a wonderfully talented woman. I saw her and I just knew."

John Popper: "She is inimitable."
