Begun as a duo in Olympia, Washington by Jeffrey Henry and Sam Jansons, Rosyvelt moved to Seattle and became a trio (with Louis O'Callaghan, bass), and later a quartet (with Seth Howard, lead guitar and keyboards). Rosyvelt continues to buck the trend of trendy Northwest rock while nonetheless reflecting it's best qualities: variety, melody, originality, and sincerity. Applied Science is Rosyvelt's first album, and was released November 2006 on Seattle's J-Shirt Records label. From driving, new-wavy rock on songs like 'Farmboy' and 'Aurora,' to country-flavored musings on songs like 'Sue' and 'County Lines,' to the gorgeous balladry of 'Dissection,' the bombastic twee of 'San Francisco,' and the chamber-orchestral 'Dancing by Numbers,' Applied Science is diverse to say the least. The common thread of Jeffrey Henry's unique vision and unerring sense of melody pulls it all together.
