Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers is a rock band from Tempe, Arizona, USA. The band is typically referred to by the fans as "The Peacemakers" or by the abbreviation "RCPM". The Peacemakers' music is known to cross genres, with earlier songs showing a more Country influence, and more recent songs sounding more like a modern pop song with a Reggae/South of the Border influence. After the demise of The Refreshments, a semi-successful rock band of the 1990s known for their top radio hit "Banditos," and also for the theme song to the long-running animated series King of the Hill, former frontman Roger Clyne and drummer Paul "P.H." Naffah formed a new band that would be called Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers. The Peacemaker's early lyrics showcased Roger's Southwestern roots and invoke images of cowboys, federales, and frequently reference Mexico and Arizona along with other Southwestern references. The early works have much more of a nihilistic feel to them.

Recently his work has veered toward a permanent vacation feel, with many references to escaping modern society's suburban lifestyle and trying to avoid a mid-life crisis. The early musical feel of Roger Clyne and the Peacemakers was a noticeable change from Clyne's previous works with The Refreshments. Whereas The Refreshments had a prominent lead guitar and edgy southwestern rock feel, The Peacemakers initially displayed a heavier country influence along with focusing more on the singer-songwriter aspect. Roger Clyne and PH Naffah were originally joined by former Gin Blossom, Scott Johnson who left to rejoin his former band in 2002. Also in the mix was Steve Larson, former guitarist for another Tempe band, Dead Hot Workshop, who had already been playing with the Peacemakers by that time. In January, 2009 it was announced that Steve Larson would be departing "The Peacemakers" and would be replaced by Railbenders frontman Jim Dalton on lead guitar. Also joining Roger & P.H.

was bass player Danny White. In early 2004, shortly after the release of ¬°Americano!, Danny White left the Peacemakers to start his own recording studio in Nashville, Tennessee. He was replaced by Nick Scropos, who at the time, was the bassist for another Tempe band, Gloritone. Scropos was the bass player for The Peacemakers when they originally formed, however he departed after having only recorded the bass track for one song, the crowd favorite Green & Dumb, due to a previous obligation to Gloritone.
