In our early experiences together, I recorded some things with his previous band, but Union of Saints is his best effort to date. I played a few songs with them at The House of Blues recently and I was amazed at how great they sound live. So many times the studio becomes the enemy of a new band because they cannot re-create what is on the CD. This can't be said about Union of Saints. Their impact on stage is the same as that on the record'.
