heartsoulblood is evidence of the positive effects serious touring can have on a group, even one full of accomplished musicians such as Royal Southern Brotherhood. Review by Meghan Roos for BLUES ROCK REVIEW
“I never expected this to become such a thing when we started,” Metheny wrote of the Unity Band. “I don’t know that any of us did – it has evolved really organically, and everyone has pushed a lot of things to the side to do this." Interview by Marcus Crowder for THE SACRAMENTO BEE.
