John Schlitt, Billy Smiley and John Ellis form The Union Of Sinners And Saints

A NEW rock band, The Union Of Sinners And Saints, have announced their debut album and a worldwide tour for 2016. The group consists of John Schlitt, former lead singer of Petra, Billy Smiley, guitarist, singer and founding member of White Heart, John Ellis, the front man for South Africa's Tree63, and new artist Jason Fowler. Said Schlitt, "The idea of a new project really intrigued both Billy and me. With our histories, it only made sense to feature the favourites of Petra and White Heart [on the planned album] along with some of the new songs we were writing in the studio. We realised we had a lot of new ideas swirling around in our heads that we wanted to share, both musically and lyrically; songs that were on our hearts and minds, yet we also wanted to celebrate with all of our friends and fans some of the memorable songs, moments and performances that they have been a part of over the years." CR
