    I Wasn’t Born an Angel

    Hell Hole Swamp

    The Moon Ain’t Fallen On Me Yet (Live 2-25-14)

    Smothered (Acoustic by RJ Comer)

    RJ Comer and Dilana – Bootleg – Molly Malone’s

  • Wreckage of the Future

    Americana, Country, Blues

    Wreckage of the Future is inspired by the same young friend of RJ’s who inspired the Dance Hall Pimps’ single Mommy Was A Zombie. Relentlessly expecting the worst possible outcome means forever living in the Wreckage of the Future. Having a healthy laugh at that pathology is sometimes the best relief. RJ’s loves country blues songs where the singer is laughing at his own folly a la Jerry Reed’s She Got the Goldmine, I Got the Shaft, Merle Haggard’s Think I’ll Just Sit Here and Drink, and Johnny Bond’s 10 Little Bottles.

    I see debris before the explosion
    I smell the smoke before the flame
    I feel the mud slide before the erosion
    I heard the Devil comin’ long before he came
    I spot the lie
    Before it is spoken
    I tie me down while I’m still free
    I feel my heart break
    Before it gets broken
    I know the tragic end of a love story for me
    Since the wreckage of my past shows that I been cursed
    To the Wreckage of the Future that’s where I go first
    The best laid plan is always to expect the worst
    I think I’m fired before I’m in trouble
    I’d rather quit before the give me the sack
    I tried to leave town to start my life over
    But when I hit the road the road just hit me right back
    Since the wreckage of my past shows that I been cursed
    To the Wreckage of the Future that’s where I go first
    The best laid plan is always to expect the worst
    Ya gotta think positively is what all them smart folks say
    When I think positively it’ll be a good day
    I know positively it’ll go the other…
    Way up ahead a dark cloud’s formin’
    I start to drown while I’m still dry
    I see the flood rise before it get stormin’
    If death is a release then I prob’ly won’t die
    Since the wreckage of my past shows that I been cursed
    To the Wreckage of the Future that’s where I go first
    The best laid plan is always to expect the worst

  • Got Two Kitchens

    New Orleans-style Jazz, Acoustic, Americana.

    In the American south, and interestingly also in the Fijian islands, a man who keeps both a wife and a regular mistress is said to have “Two Kitchens.” Got Two Kitchens is a playful romp in the vein of New Orleans songs from early- to mid-Twentieth Century.

    Got a kitchen in the farmhouse bakes my bread
    Got a kitchen in town servin’ pie instead
    A kitchen in town, another at home
    ‘Cause a man can’t live on bread alone
    I Got Two Kitchens
    Yeah I Got Two Kitchens
    Go to bed hungry? I think not
    Got Two Kitchens ‘cause I sure can eat a lot
    When the farmhouse kitchen done shut down
    I take my appetite right to town
    If the kitchen in town shut its door
    Then it’s back to the farmhouse eat some more
    I Got Two Kitchens
    Yeah I Got Two Kitchens
    Go to bed hungry? I think not
    Got Two Kitchens ‘cause I sure can eat a lot
    Some guys got two cars they drive”
    Just one car makes ‘em feel deprived
    Got a Caddy for the game and a Chevy to appease the wife
    Two cars make them guys feel right
    Two kitchens satisfies my appetite
    Gourmet cuisine or red beans and rice
    Variety’s the spice of life
    I Got Two Kitchens
    Yeah I Got Two Kitchens
    Go to bed hungry? I think not
    Got Two Kitchens ‘cause I sure can eat a lot
    Now when I ain’t eatin’ I’m fillin shelves
    Them two kitchens don’t stock themselves
    I had a good idea now I know this much
    Even with two kitchens there’s no free lunch
    I Got Two Kitchens
    Yeah I Got Two Kitchens
    Go to bed hungry? I think not
    Got Two Kitchens ‘cause I sure can eat a lot

  • Hell Hole Swamp

    Americana, Acoustic, Swamp.

    Hell Hole Swamp is a real place in South Carolina along Highway 41 near Jamestown and Moncks Corner—which are by all standards very nice little towns despite their adjacency to Hell Hole Swamp. Jamestown hosts the annual Hell Hole Swamp Festival with a very competitive beauty pageant to name the Hell Hole Swamp Queen. Hell Hole Swamp is also the site of famous Revolutionary War skirmishes between American war hero General Francis Marion (the “Swamp Fox”) and the British forces led by Colonel Banastre Tarleton. The area was originally settled by the French Protestant Huguenots whose influence on religion and culture can still be found around Hell Hole Swamp.

    White mist creepin’ ‘cross the Forty-One
    Carolina moon seepin’ rings of blood
    Good ol’ boys sleepin’ off the Gator Run
    Black water keepin’ secrets in the mud
    Beautiful child dreamin’ pageant dreams
    Jamestown’s nicer than a town should seem
    so close to Hell Hole Swamp
    The monks on the corner got their eye on the gate
    That the Swamp Fox lured the king’s assassins through
    Them Tarleton boys they was just gator bait
    As the water closed around ‘em like it tend to do
    In fury they came in silence they fell
    Or so the story goes that the old folks tell
    Sometimes ‘round Hell Hole Swamp
    Huguenot whispers still are heard in the trees
    When the canopy darkens and the critters fall still
    The un-redeemed stranger gets down on his knees
    Either God claims his soul or the Hell Hole will
    Beauty and danger occupy the same space
    in the shadowed grace of this ironic place
    Called Hell Hole Swamp

  • If I Could Be Water

    Adult Contemporary, Country, Singer/Songwriter

    One of the loneliest feelings is the feeling of unworthiness… the feeling that there is no way you can ever be good enough or redeem yourself in eyes of your beloved. Even when you imagine yourself differently, you can’t escape the condemnation of your own indictment and, ultimately, deny yourself the very thing you most desire. RJ describes If I Could Be Water as the softer more introspective follow-up to his rock song Wrong Guy, Baby which appears on the Dance Hall Pimps debut LP Beast for Love.

    If I could be water
    I’d wanna be rain
    Gently falling from thunder
    Softly misting your hair
    But if I could be water
    I doubt I’d fall gently through the air
    I’d be more like a river
    Always running somewhere
    If I could be water
    Water deep in a well
    A well that refreshes
    And makes wishes come true
    But if I was a wishing well
    I’d be known for wishes overdue
    Until no one comes wishing
    And least of all you
    There’s a mountain bathed in sunlight
    How to get there I don’t know
    But I see it from the shadows
    Of regrets I can’t let go
    If I could climb that mountain
    I’d say your name into the breeze
    And hope that you’d come back to me
    In rustling whispers from the trees
    If I could be someone
    Someone other than me
    I’d like to be someone
    Who is worthy of you
    If I could be someone
    Who does things as gently as you do
    Then I could be rain
    And a wishing well too
    If I could be water

  • It Won’t Be Christmastime ‘Round Here

    Adult Contemporary, Acoustic, Country.

    A lot of people are lonely at Christmastime, and this song is for them. But it’s not a bitter song; it’s really a Christmas love song. It Won’t Be Christmastime ‘Round Here is inspired by and written for lovers separated by circumstance, particularly military personnel and their families and everyone else whose loved ones may be working away from their families at Christmastime.

    Everywhere it looks like Christmastime
    The season of good cheer
    It must be Christmastime
    But not for me this year
    Alone, and wishing you’d come back home
    But Darlin’ until then, I’ll wait for you my friend
    Until I once again hold you near
    It Won’t Be Christmastime ‘Round Here
    For everyone else it’s Merry Christmastime
    I bless them on their way
    To enjoy their Christmastime
    No one should feel like me today
    Apart from the one who owns my heart
    As tough as I try to be these tears they just roll free
    Until you’re home with me one thing’s clear
    It Won’t Be Christmastime

    No it just won’t be Christmastime
    How can it be Christmastime ‘Round Here?
    No it just won’t be Christmastime ‘round here

  • Desica

    Adult Contemporary, Singer/Songwriter.

    Like Pilate’s Dream from Jesus Christ Superstar (Andrew Lloyd Weber & Tim Rice), Desica is a soft, moody, stream that never contrives to run backwards and reprise a previous thought. It presents those fluid conflicting feelings and questions that arise in an emerging romance. RJ wrote this song as he was falling in love with the woman who is now his wife. They’ve been married 16 years.

    She appears through frosted glass
    Rapidly familiar
    And I think she’s come at last
    How long have I been here?
    Lookin’ out through foolish floodplain eyes
    Figurin’ the angles of a thousand fruitless tries
    Promises and smokes ain’t free
    But sometimes they don’t cost much
    And there’s comfort in quantity
    I been seen on that crutch
    If no one is everything then what can you live without
    And if I were everything then what would she do with doubt?
    She holds secrets like shells hold sea
    Gotta listen careful
    She’s as honest as she can be
    Unless it’s something dreadful
    A two-faced mask hangs strangely on the wall
    One side’s laughin’ the other side don’t laugh at all

  • New Orleans Undercover EP← back

    New Orleans Undercover EP

    New Orleans Undercover is the culmination of RJ’s Crescent City collaborations with the legendary Lee Floyd (2012 Inductee into the National Banjo Hall of Fame). From Bourbon Street to the Treme, RJ’s captivating voice and Lee’s effortlessly masterful banjo solos delighted locals and tourists alike. So Lee brought his band of New Orleans musicians into the studio and they recorded two of their favorite songs. Their ripping version of Folsom Prison Blues sounds like a Rockabilly band joined a New Orleans street parade and features a young stand-up bass player that Lee found busking on Bourbon Street.

    RJ’s respectful but unique interpretation of the traditional St. James Infirmary Blues garnered immediate attention from New Orleans musicians who would spot RJ in the audience and invite him on-stage to sing the song. Lee and RJ wanted these songs to sound live, so – in true New Orleans style – they recorded the songs as an ensemble. New Orleans Undercover is just a taste of more to come from RJ Comer and Lee Floyd.




  • Hell Hole Swamp EP← back

    Hell Hole Swamp EP

    RJ_HHS_Cover_500x500RJ Comer’s five original swamp songs on Hell Hole Swamp capture RJ’s love for swamp stories & legends–the shadow, the sin, the redemption, and the humor. Although a fusion of Louisiana and Carolina swamp influences, Hell Hole Swamp is contemporary Americana and is unlimited by boundaries. RJ plays plectrum banjo on every track and is accompanied by a wide variety of instruments — including acoustic and electric guitar, organ, fiddle, and horns on one track (“I Wasn’t Born an Angel”). RJ’s long time collaborator Rob Hill produced three tracks and True Blood and Treme contributor C.C. Adcock produced “Smothered” and “I Wasn’t Born an Angel” in Lafayette, Louisiana. Notable Louisiana artists participated in some of the tracks. The incomparable New Orleans drummer and percussionist Stanton Moore appears on these tracks along with Artelius Mystic (sousaphone) and Dave Rosser (organ). Like any southern American Swamp, Hell Hole Swamp can be charming and fun, but just as quickly can turn dark… “Beauty and danger occupy the same space in the shadowed grace of this foresaken place, called Hell Hole Swamp.”

    About RJ Comer

    RJ-Universal-Bar-Grill-CompressedRJ 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.

    about_rj3As 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 is currently completing his collection of solo material for release in 2015 and continues building his library of songs for film and TV licensing.
