“K. Roosevelt’s songwriting is compact, vivid, and effective. He imbues every word with purpose and emotion, despite the fact the song is about the absence of emotion.”
“There’s a luxe and languid quality to his music that reels you in before you’re tumbled about by the myriad textures he layers into each track.”
“Driven by this funky bass line and some crisp drum work, K. Roosevelt shows off his vocal prowess and his effortless appeal behind the mic.”
ABOUT K. ROOSEVELT:
Born Kevin Roosevelt Moore II and raised in Los Angeles, his evolution as an artist is best articulated by the advice of his father, renowned blues musician Keb’ Mo’, who told his son, “Follow your dharma.” As a child often on tour with his dad, K. Roosevelt frequently found himself in the mist of some of the world’s great musicians and singers.
His formal music education began in middle school and continued at Hamilton Performing Arts High School. He soon began a career as a freelance drummer, gigging for local artists as well as going on tours. After high school, K. Roosevelt attended the Los Angeles Musician’s Institute. His training and influences, and the practical skills he’d picked up from a lifetime around the music industry eventually led him to writing and producing full-time.
In the studio, K. Roosevelt has worked with Jhené Aiko, The Game, OverDoz, Dom Kennedy, Jay 305, Hit-Boy, Casey Veggies, SuperDuper Kyle, and Travis Scott, to name a few.
