Americana at it's Best
If you love America, than buy this CD.

Play It Often. It's Good For You!
Americana for the 21st century. Original blend of bluegrass, blues, rock, country. Plus it cured my arthritis and found my missing cat.

E Kid

An original sound with depth. The songwriting is clever musically and lyrically. Roosevelt Dime knows how to keep it choice.


high and dry?!
yay! better than radiohead.
