RJ Comer is a Los Angeles city boy with swamp water in his veins who started out singing in church and around the campfire, but ended up in a lot bad places at wrong times. His brand of Americana & Blues reflects the kind of man he is and was – a tough guy with a tender heart, a lover, a fighter, and a joker, a man who confesses “I should be dead or in jail instead of living a life so good.” From downtempo gritty songs that cut deep with self-deprecating humor and jagged memories to upbeat songs that swagger even when they swing, RJ’s music is both meaningful and entertaining.

RJ’s powerful voice, his captivating live performances, and his infectious songs have been attracting attention. Talents as diverse as A.J. Croce, C.C. Adcock, and Matt Hyde have produced tracks with RJ. He’s toured with Steve Forbert and toured the American Southwest playing dates with Sara Hickman and Guy Forsyth. After a show in Albuquerque, representatives from the New Mexico Americana Music Society described RJ as “refreshingly manly.” John Schneider (Dukes of Hazzard) asked RJ to write the title track for John’s horror comedy “Smothered,” which is set in a Louisiana trailer park. Deering Banjo Company includes RJ on its list of featured artists alongside Bela Fleck, Dom Flemmons (Carolina Chocolate Drops), Detroit Brooks, Scott Avett, and Scotty Morris (Big Bad Voodoo Daddy).

In 2009, RJ launched his first band the Dance Hall Pimps, a 7-piece blues rock show band with a horn section. They were quickly approached by two record labels and signed with Lakeshore Records. In 2012 the Dance Hall Pimps released their debut LP, Beast for Love. JiveWired described the LP as “A howling party record that’s infectious in all the right ways… a musically muscular package,” and RockWired praised it for its “Infectious hooks and mind blowing vocals.” RJ and the Dance Hall Pimps released their follow-up LP The Dead Don’t Walk (Growling Moon Records) on November 5, 2013.

As a solo artist RJ steps away from the flamboyant party that is the Dance Hall Pimps and relaxes into a much more personal, intimate, and sometimes confessional vibe. RJ’s debut solo EP Hell Hole Swamp is a collection of five original swamp songs produced back and forth between Los Angeles and Lafayette, Louisiana. Notable producers and players include True Blood and Treme’ contributor C.C. Adcock, Artelius Mystic, and the legendary Stanton Moore. RJ intends to release a series of EPs, each EP exploring one of his many styles of Americana and Blues. Expect forthcoming EP collections of Americana Rock, Blues, and a two-song special edition EP with A.J Croce.
