Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers’ Native Heart Debuts at #14 on iTunes Chart

Roger Clyne and The Peacemaker’s eighth studio album, Native Heart, is now available through all digital retailers. The ten-track project was produced by Grammy winning legend Steve Berlin and mixed by Michael Brauer at the iconic Electric Lady Studios; 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 group will celebrate the release of Native Heart with a show tonight at Livewire in Scottsdale, AZ. Tickets are available on their website, www.rogerclyneandthepeacemakers.com.

About Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers
Bridging the gap between rock & roll, roadhouse Americana, and the music sounds of the southwestern United States, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers have carved their own path over 15 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’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 cultural 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 his next project, Roger Clyne & The Peacemakers, a roots rock sound relying not on a record label for support, but on near-constant touring and a rare, genuine connection with fans.

In April of 2017, the band’s founders, Roger Clyne & PH Naffah, appeared in a 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 put their own stamp on the album’s music with an upcoming, all-star tribute album recreation of Fizzy Fuzzy Big and Buzzy.
