It is not only heart, but blood that unites the core of Roosevelt Diggs. At its base: Two brothers, Levi and Logan Duddles, who have spent a lifetime creating and writing music together. With the addition of the musical backbone of Jon Shears on the upright bass and John Ellsworth on percussion, they transformed from two brothers picking on stringed instruments to a band with a fire inside.
Musically, Roosevelt Diggs finds itself in the long standing Michigan tradition of acoustic based music. Blending Folk, Country, Bluegrass, Blues, Rockabilly and Rock and Roll into a melting pot of true Americana, Roosevelt Diggs proudly carries on this tradition and brings a genuine approach to acoustic music.
Since its beginning in 2008, Roosevelt Diggs has made its way around Michigan performing in some of the finest concert venues, breweries, and festivals. Whether it’s a high energy evening in your favorite brewery, a Wednesday afternoon at a music in the Park, or the opening set for a sold out nationally touring act, their music was felt and embraced by audiences of all ages and musical preferences.
The Spring of 2018 will find Roosevelt Diggs in the studio for their third album. They are excited to display the songwriting and arrangement growth since their 2014 release, "Songs From The Shed". The band will be harnessing the energy and flow from their live shows and taking it into the studio. What better place to be than at Third Coast Studios with Bill Chrysler at the controls. Bill Chrysler's talents often find him nationally touring and running sound for The Grateful Dead, John Mayer, and numerous other legendary acts.
Music is felt, not heard. Live music is an exchange of emotions from musician to audience and back again. It is something that cannot be harnessed with a silver disk or mp3. Roosevelt Diggs brings the wide influences of four individuals into one painted landscape. They focus their obsession for music into this live music setting…..for true Roosevelt Diggs, experience it live.
