The upbeat summer tune sets the tone for the band’s annual music festival, Circus Mexicus, in Puerto Peñasco, Mexico set for June 8th through the 11th. The project was produced by Grammy-winning legend Steve Berlin and mixed by Michael Brauer at the iconic Electric Lady Studios. Together, they shine new light on a band who has 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 n’ Roll soundtrack.
Native Heart will release on all platforms on June 30th. For more information, visit their website: 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 band 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 and PH Naffah, appear in a documentary 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 whom put their own stamp on the album’s music with an upcoming, all-star tribute album recreation of Fizzy Fuzzy Big and Buzzy.
