ROSEWOOD THIEVZ – SUNDAY, 12/9/18 @ 4:00PM

Rosewood Thievz carry a classy elegance not usually seen in a town famous for Tippin’ and Sippin’. They can seamlessly move between cerebral hip-hop and buttery-smooth R&B without any disruption in mood or musicality. Yet if you ask them to define their sound, they’ll sum it up in one word, “groove,” which may indeed be the perfect response. Formed in 2012 in Third Ward, the diversely talented Killa Swami, Big Game James, and Joe-yo release a vibe of earthy realness, a sapiosexual essence that’s intoxicating to watch and compelling to hear. Brave enough to celebrate all facets of Southern sounds (even zydeco), Rosewood’s music is continually surprising, but the trio is more than that, too. Active community members, they even do things like create historical video lessons with the Buffalo Soldier Museum. Rosewood Thievz are the kind of trio that only H-Town could create — a mix of alternative hip-hop, funk, and groove played with a humid thickness that feels like the soundtrack of the Bayou City on a hot and steamy day.” – Houston Press 4/2017
