Audio Samples of "I'm with the Band" by The Tierney Sutton Band
I’m with the Band is our only live recording and the group's 1st Grammy nominated CD. We felt that our shows had a great energy, and we wanted to try and capture that intimate vibe between the band and the audience. Birdland was the perfect place for us to record because we played there frequently and had built-up a great audience. Both Trey and Kevin played bass, which made the “gig” really fun for us. Besides this being a live recording it also marks the change of the band’s name. The name was officially changed from just “Tierney Sutton” to “The Tierney Sutton Band”. We had always been equal partners in the band, and not a "singer with sidemen" so we felt that it was an important change.
"Sutton's brilliance is her ability to blend seamlessly with her superlative bandmates (pianist Christian Jacob, bassists
Trey Henry and Kevin Axt and drummer Ray Brinker) who have been integral to her escalating success for more than
a decade. Providing a continuous flow of support, strength and inspiration, they are her Granz, her Riddle.
