RJ Comer is a classically trained singer and composer gone terribly wrong. Now he’s the banjo-wielding frontman and primary songwriter of the roots rock show band, Dance Hall Pimps (Lakeshore Records), and is branching out with an acoustic Americana solo project. As a signed recording artist, singer, songwriter, and lyricist, RJ’s music is fueled by a strong belief that there will always be an audience for good songs in the great Mid-Twentieth Century American musical genres as well as for contemporary songs inspired by that material. He stops by to chat about his successful career on Wednesday, January 23, at 8:30pm EST.
RJ’s a city boy with swamp water in his veins, a profound disappointment to his parents, and the banjo-wielding front man of the blues rock show band Dance Hall Pimps. RJ’s Americana solo project fuses moody dark troubadour, classic smoky jazz, blues, and rock—taking him back to the days of playing music in bad places and sometimes fighting his way out of there. His unconventional use of plectrum banjo caught the attention of Deering Banjo Company, which included him among Deering’s sponsored artists.In 2009, RJ launched his first band the Dance Hall Pimps, who were quickly approached by two record labels. In 2012, the Dance Hall Pimps released their debut LP, Beast for Love, on Lakeshore Records. RJ and the Dance Hall Pimps recently released their second LP The Dead Don’t Walk—which dropped November 5, 2013 (Growling Moon Records).John Schneider (Dukes of Hazzard) asked RJ to write the title track to his horror/comedy “SMOTHERED”. Six Dance Hall Pimps tracks are also on the soundtrack.RJ is currently working on his solo album, due out in 2014. There’s talk of him going to New Orleans to make the record.
