Perspiration and Inspiration – Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers

Writing a novel is a daunting task and many writers listen to music while working.  I had several artists and playlists to help keep me motivated.  Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers was one such band.  Roger’s an Arizonan songwriter with a flare for Southwestern influences here and a Mexican inference there.  His sound and lyrics went well with my project.  Music critics have compared his songwriting to the greats of Americana and Rock and Roll music, including the likes of Springsteen, Mellencamp and Tom Petty.

I was fortunate enough to see the band live at The Belly Up Tavern in Solana Beach, CA last night.  Their high energy show rocked the house for over two hours.  It was a very timely and fitting exclamation point to our year long “collaboration”.
