Sir Rosevelt

Sir Rosevelt is the dance-pop side project of jam-friendly country singer/songwriter Zac Brown. He came up with the idea of indulging in his EDM and pop infatuations while recording Zac Brown Band's 2015 album, Jekyll + Hyde, which was written largely with Niko Moon. Brown and Moon added Ben Simonetti, who did drum programming for just under half of Jekyll + Hyde, and started writing and recording horn-heavy, hooky dance music and developing a stage show to match. The trio unveiled Sir Rosevelt in September of 2016 with the release of the Pharrell Williams-produced single "Sunday Finest." A few bonus tracks -- "Nothing's Gonna Stop Us," "For My Own," "Take Your Love Away" -- briefly appeared on the band's official Twitter account before being pulled from the Internet. A couple of remixes of "Sunday Finest" followed in 2017 as the group prepared a full-length record. That eponymous debut contained all of the previously released promotional singles and arrived in December 2017. ~ Stephen Thomas Erlewine
