The Roosevelts with the Brevet
The Roosevelts came together in Austin, then moved to Nashville in 2015. The indie-rockers released their debut album in 2016. The fall of 2017 brought change to the group. When the band’s lead singer left that year, they added Mitchell Kilpatrick who has been nudging the band into a more contemporary direction: half pop, half alternative. Their latest single, “Do You Want Me?,” was released May 11.
