The Roosevelts are two beautifully bearded men whose songs enrapture listeners in a cloud of feeling and sometimes an uncontrollable need to dance. Although considered a pop/rock band, their often narrative lyrics lead listeners down paths riddled with tragic epiphanies giving them a much more serious kind of philosophical air. To record their debut album, Cold Sheets, The Roosevelts chose a power team with producer Dwight Baker (Bob Schneider), drummer JJ Johnson (John Mayer) and bassist Dave Monsey (Fiona Apple) guaranteeing this album to be sublime lyrically, vocally and instrumentally.
