Roosevelt (born Marius Lauber in September 1990) is a German singer, songwriter and producer from Viersen (near Cologne).[1] He is signed to Greco-Roman.[2][3]

Music career[edit]

His first project was Beat!Beat!Beat!, an indie teenage band where he was the drummer. Years later the band separated and he became soloist.

He then released his acclaimed debut EP 'Elliot' in 2013.[4] The lead single 'Elliot' was named as Pitchforks 'Best New Track'.[5] Roosevelt then released the double-A side 'Night Moves/Hold On' in 2015 on Greco-Roman[6] which continued a warm synth-pop, Balearic-influenced sound.

In April 2016, he announced his self-titled debut album, set for release on August 19, 2016 on Greco-Roman/City Slang,[7] with the video for tracks "Colours" and "Moving On".[8]

He has remixed the likes of Glass Animals, Jax Jones, Truls, Sundara Karma, Luka Vasta and Kakkmaddafakka,[9] and on tour has supported Hot Chip,[10] Totally Enormous Extinct Dinosaurs[11] and Crystal Fighters.[12]

In June 2018, he announced a second album 'Young Romance', set for release on September 28, 2018. The first single from this album 'Under The Sun' was released on June 27, 2018.
