Sutton, a practicing Baha'i for 25 years, believes in equality and respect for all members. Giving the other members of the band time in the light allows Christian Jacobs (piano), Kevin Axt (bass), and Ray Brinker (drummer), to enhance the performance, flourishing in the admiration of the audience as well.
Sutton shares songs from previous works including 2002's Something Cool with Route 66, Wouldn't it be Loverly, I've Grown Accustomed to His Face, and 2005's I'm With the Band with I Get a Kick and S'Wonderful. The group also draws from current release Desire with My Heart Belongs to Daddy and Skylark.
Often the studio version of an artist is almost unrecognizable as the same artist you witnessed live. Not so with The Tierney Sutton Band. Listening to Desire, it is simple to imagine you are once again enjoying the intimate setting of The Cabaret at The Columbia.
