The Rosewood Thieves' build upon the sincerity of John Lennon's solo work and the poetic earnestness of Bob Dylan and the Band for their own plain-spoken indie rock sound. As the brainchild of singer/songwriter Erick Jordan, the New York City collective formed in 2004. Jordan and a high school acquaintance, organ player Mackenzie Vernacchio inked a deal with V2 within a year, and readied themselves for the Rosewood Thieves' debut. The autumn months of 2005 were spent writing and recording in the hobo town of Deposit, NY, and the end result was a homegrown six-song collection entitled From Decker House. Produced by Thom Monahan (the Pernice Brothers, Vetiver, Devendra Banhart) and released in July 2006, From Decker House also features performances by Vetiver's Andy Cabic, Blake Hazard of the Submarines, and veteran pianist Bob Dorough. The Rosewood Thieves, rounded out by William Frish (guitar/backing vocals), Richard Ray (bass), and Mark Bordenet (drums), can also be seen performing at various Manhattan music dwellings such as Maxwell's, Piano's, and Sin-é. ~ MacKenzie Wilson
