1680 Artists The Roosevelts are a “live” band if there ever was one. While 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, the band has taken the leap to “national act” status and 1680 is fielding booking offers NOW for 2017-2018!
ABOUT THE NEW ALBUM
Currently touring in support of their first full-length release, The Greatest Thing You’ll Ever Learn, The Roosevelts have surpassed the popular cult-following status they achieved with their freshman effort, earning a distinctive spot on the stage of the Austin City Limits Festival 2016 along with heavyweight acts such as Radiohead, Mumford & Sons, Kendrick Lamar, Cage The Elephant, Young The Giant, Band of Horses, and Willie Nelson.
Released earlier this year and already featured in Hollywood’s top TV shows, such as NASHVILLE and Netflix’s The Ranch, The Greatest Thing You’ll Ever Learn peaked at #5 on the iTunes charts. Recognition and demand of The Roosevelts’ sound across the US was significantly boosted during 2016 with placements in two pop culture broadcast juggernauts. Featured on the new album, tracks “This Is Life” (featured on ABC TV’s hit series NASHVILLE) and “Ashes” (recently featured on Netflix hit series The Ranch) are among the most popular singles found via the Shazam music locator mobile app, and streaming services such as Pandora.
