Roger Meade Clyne (born January 13, 1968) is the lead singer, primary songwriter, and rhythm guitar player for the American rock band Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers. His previous bands include The Refreshments and the Mortals.
Clyne and the Peacemakers (also known as RCPM) released their seventh full-length studio album, "The Independent", on April 29, 2014. Clyne's musical career has spanned close to two decades, including several hits with the Refreshments and penning the theme song for the TV show King of the Hill. Clyne also wrote and recorded the victory song for his hometown Major League Baseball club, the Arizona Diamondbacks, entitled The D-Backs Swing.
Much of Clyne's music throughout his career revolves around life in southern and central Arizona. He was born in Tucson and grew up in Tempe where he balanced life as a suburban kid while visiting his grandparents' ranch in southern Arizona. There, he rode horses, herded cattle and fixed fences. As a youth and young adult, his frequent trips south of the border to Mexico have influenced his music. Clyne attended college at Arizona State University, where he played with several bands. Clyne is also a fervent supporter of giving back to the community. Several concerts including RCPM's annual show in Rocky Point, Mexico raise money for charities based in both Rocky Point and Arizona.
