Sly Roosevelt is a five-piece band from Huntington, West Virginia. Often described vaguely as "experimental indie," their music plays with elements from a number of genres: introspective singer-songwriter lyrics sung in an abrasive punk-like style, swelling guitar riffs, complex structures, catchy pop melodies, synthesizers, unconventional percussion, and the occasional theremin-driven spacey breakdown.
Sly was formed in 2008 by original members Sean McDaniel (guitar, vocals), Alexander Durand (bass), and Matthew Marshall (drums). Jyosh Sanders (lead guitar) and Megan Shoub Durand (keys) joined in the summer of 2009. Former members include Brian Graham (keys) and Aimee Schmalz (vocals).
