Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers
Bridging the gap between rock & roll, roadhouse Americana, and the music sound of the southwestern United States, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers have carved their own path over the last 25 years. They’ve traveled the world, sent eight albums to the top of the Billboard Internet Sales Chart, launched an annual music festival in Mexico, started their own line of ultra-premium tequila and built a global community of music-lovers and peacemakers – all while remaining 100% independent.
The band just released their 10th studio album in 20 years - "Native Heart". Produced by Grammy winning legend Steve Berlin and mixed by Michael Brauer at the iconic Electric Ladyland, they shine new light on a band that’s built a career on trekking their own path with their own sound style of twang and taller-than-life characters of the Southwest to a rock & roll soundtrack.
The band’s roots run deep, sinking back to a time with The Refreshments – the hometown heroes of Phoenix during the mid-1990s, fueled by a major-label deal with Mercury Records, a popular song (”Banditos”) on American rock radio and MTV, and the unique distinction of being both the composers and performers of the theme song for the culture favorite "King of the Hill" TV show. All served to introduce Roger Clyne’s songwriting to a national audience. The Refreshments sang about Mexico, liquored-up bandits and troubadours, mixing the lore of the American Southwest with guitar muscle and pop/rock melody. Clyne deepened that sound with The Peacemakers, a roots rock band relying not on a record label for support, but on near-constant touring and a rare, genuine connection with fans.
Last year, the band's founders, Roger Clyne & PH Naffah, appeared in a full length documentary "here's to life" about The Refreshments. Which celebrates the 20th Anniversary of the debut album, Fizzy Fuzzy Big & Buzzy. Two decades after its release, the album continues to influence a wide range of rock and country musicians, 12 of who will put their own stamp on the album’s music with an upcoming, all-star tribute album recreation of the iconic album
Jimmy Fitch's debut album, Promised Land EP, embraces the influences and styles of country music's greatest and past generations to create 4 songs about life, love, and hard times. Recorded at the Compound Recording Studio in Austin, Texas, the Promised Land EP was Fitch's first project in the studio. The title track, "Promised Land," is Fitch's favorite on the album because it incorporates his love for outlaws, drifters, trains and the Wild West. "Really the whole song is written about a drifter's life and all the things that are dragging him down: the women, the whiskey and his trouble with the law," explains Fitch. Originally from Midlothian, Virginia, Fitch is currently living in Tennessee, earning his second college degree in Bluegrass, Old Time and Country Music Studies at East Tennessee State University. His powerful voice, with its rare, raw and sincere quality, conjures the timeless spirit of John Anderson, the whiskey-soaked heartache of Keith Whitley, and the broken-bottle grit of Johnny Paycheck. From classics like "Ramblin' Fever" to his hard-hitting bar room anthems "Promised Land" and "Drinkin For Two,” his high-energy shows take you on a solid gold Country roller coaster each and every night.
