Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers
Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers
Hailed as one of the most exciting live acts on the road today, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers are musical beacons of the Southwest fueled by witty and insightful lyrics, crunching guitar riffs, a dynamic rhythm section and tequila. RCPM are the only act to have seven consecutive studio albums land on the Top 10 of Billboard’s Internet Sales Chart. Two of them debuted at No. 1 and ALL of them were released on a 100% independent record label.

Dubbed the “Springsteen of the Southwest” by the Asbury Park Press, Roger Clyne recently celebrated 20 years of touring, starting with The Refreshments. The Tempe, Arizona band made big waves in the ’90s on college, alt-rock radio and MTV with the songs “Banditos” (with the infamous chorus, “Everybody knows that the world is full of stupid people”) and “Down Together.” The Refreshments also composed the theme song for TV’s “King of the Hill.”
Andrew Leahey
Andrew Leahey & the Homestead make music for city highways and open horizons, for pop fans and roots rockers, for the heart as well as the heartland.

They're an American rock & roll band, bypassing the sub-genres and trends that come and go every decade and, instead, focusing on the anthemic, guitar-driven sound that's been blasting out of car stereos at 65 mile per hour ever since God created FM radio. Written in the wake of an emergency brain surgery operation that nearly wiped out Leahey's hearing, "Skyline in Central Time" is the band's collective rallying cry, an album that funnels desperation and gratitude and heartbreak -- as well as a lot of guitar solos -- into eleven tracks produced by Wilco co-founder Ken Coomer. Here's to second chances.
