It's a tremendous honor for my band mates and I to be backing Eric, we're very grateful for the opportunity to make music with him.
It's quite surreal to suddenly be playing alongside a legendary artist you've listened to and admired for so many years. I feel very lucky our paths crossed and I hope he's having as much fun as we are!
