Rising Stars: Meet Roosevelt Broome

Today we’d like to introduce you to Roosevelt aka Soberichs. Them and their team share their story with us below:

Roosevelt, also known as Soberichs, emerged from the streets of Kansas City with his own clothing brand Sober formally known as Rich Apparels, as well as his own sound musically that blends the urgency of modern-day hip-hop with a smoother sound of alternative R&B.

With over 10,000 streams worldwide, Soberichs has charted on the top 200 charts for R&B/Soul, sold out his first concert with over 250+ attendees, over 30 thousand supporters via Twitter, Instagram, etc. Soberichs has appeared in LA Fashion Week, KC Fashion Week, Omaha Fashion Week, appeared on VH1, BET, MTV and E! Network, Hot 103 Jamz, and countless blogs and magazines. Soberichs is continuing to thrive in the R&B space as a young artist.

Today, with all of Soberichs hard work and dedication, this past year he has performed for the highly anticipated yearly festival Cornucopia and a few other shows at other venues around Kansas City. 2022, will be a great year for what Soberichs has in store for all his supporters.

I’m sure you wouldn’t say it’s been obstacle-free, but so far would you say the journey has been a fairly smooth road?

As an independent artist, with no record label pushing me, it gets difficult. Studio time, music videos, social media marketing is all done by me. At times, it can get challenging because as an artist, I want to solely focus on just the art, however, you gotta do what you gotta do!

I will say, by my persistence and consistency, it has been worth it thus far and I know more opportunities are coming my way! When challenges do arise, I just look at how far I have come and know that God is pushing me more each day to my purpose.

Appreciate you sharing that. What else should we know about what you do?

I am both an R&B artist and a clothing designer. Everything I have accomplished so far, which I am very proud of, however, having my music placed on the top 200 R&B charts on iTunes was a huge accomplishment and milestone for me. It showed me that people are tuned in and listening to my music. In addition, selling out my 1st concert, being invited to LA Fashion Week & Kansas City Fashion Week, etc, are all huge accomplishments for me!

More to come in 2022.

What are your plans for the future?

For 2022, I am releasing my 1st single called “Oceans” under my new artist name Soberichs that will be on my new upcoming EP. For so long, people knew my artist name as Roosevelt so now for indefinitely, it will be Soberichs. With that being said, I have a lot of things in the works when it comes to new collaborations, sounds, looks/aesthetics, etc.

I want to continue to strive in the R&B space, more appearances, concerts/festivals, music, and merchandise is on the way! I am very excited about what’s to come in 2022.
