Biography

Winners of the 2008 Orange County Music Awards Best Rock category, Union of Saints is “Classic rock for the New Millennium” with a modern, original approach that is both powerful and melodic, Union of Saints has gained significant popularity following on the strength of their live performances promoting their two CDs "If We Live" and “No Law Against Love”.

They may not all be saints, although some would argue the fact that when it comes to Union of Saints talent, there may be some Divine intervention. Formed in March 2001, this 6-piece California band can rock with the best of them, and have. Recently, Union of Saints has shared the stage with Toto, Asia, Kansas, Neal Schon, Foghat, The Motels, Eddie Money, Michael Schenker (UFO), The Alarm, Vince Neil (Motley Crue) and many other national acts.

The Band consists of Craig Heyde, Jeff McKibben, Curtiss Matovich, Mitch Ross, Dexter Espinoza and Eric Seidman. This band of seasoned, journeymen musicians continues to win fans among musicians and non-musicians alike.

Expect a night of great music and surprises. Past appearances have included a not only a night of great music by the boys but also guest appearances from multi-Grammy award winner Bobby Kimball, lead singer of Toto, to harmonica blues great Darrell Mansfield, to revving up a custom chopper on stage.

Union of Saints has captured the attention of two legendary artists. Mulit-Grammy award winner Bobby Kimball, lead singer of Toto, has himself praised frontman Dexter Espinoza and the band. "I've know Dex for many years and I've always enjoyed his voice and his music. In our early experiences together, I recorded some things with his previous band, but Union of Saints is his best effort to date. I played a few songs with them at The House of Blues recently and I was amazed at how great they sound live. So many times the studio becomes the enemy of a new band because they cannot re-create what is on the CD. This can't be said about Union of Saints. Their impact on stage is the same as that on the record". Renowned singer/songwriter Jennifer Warnes had just recently heard the Union of Saints CD and commented, "This is some of the freshest music I've ever heard!"

Lyrics

Save Me Please

Written By: Dexter Espinoza

You’re living for success taking nothing but the best
You never give a thought about tomorrow

You got the world you got it all yeah your never gonna fall
You best believe their hearts and minds will follow.

When I think of all the things you put me through
Now I know I was nothing but a fool
Looking for love that I was never going to find
I got to realize it’s just a waste of time

Save me please

Turn around and face the one who really loves me
I played the game and I can’t take it any more

Save me please

Pour it on so I don’t turn and run away
One more time and now you’ve opened up the door

You’ve traveled all around the world with your diamonds and your pearls
You just might break the bank in Monte Carlo

But, one day you’ll find there’s just one thing you can’t buy
Win or loose it’s meaningless and hollow.

When I think of all the things you put me through
Now I know I was nothing but a fool
Looking for love that I was never going to find
I got to realize it’s just a waste of time

Save me please

Turn around and face the one who really loves me
I played the game and I can’t take it any more

Save me please

Pour it on so I don’t turn and run away
One more time and now you’ve opened up the door

Little Piece of My Heart

Written By: Union of Saints

You want to give a little piece of your mind

Think of something better - closer to the center

Your piece of mind can be so
unkind-please choose another part

Give me a little piece of your heart

Give a little piece; give a little piece of your heart

Give a little piece; give a little piece of your heart

I feel so low when you take the high road

Feel a little better closer to the center

You race on by for your piece of the pie
It's drivin' us apart- I need a little piece of your heart

Give a little piece; give a little piece of your heart

Give a little piece; give a little piece of your heart

Can there be peace on earth?

What can I do to bring peace to mankind?

Think of something better- closer to the center

Do something kind for your own peace of mind

I'm gonna do my part and give a little piece of my heart

Give a little piece; give a little piece of your heart

Give a little piece; give a little piece of your heart

Call of the Lord

Written By: Union of Saints

Listen can you hear the wind?
It’s calling after me.
It’s beckoning and whispering there’s someplace I should be

I don’t know why I don’t know where this journey’s going to end
You know that after Jesus comes I’ll be back again

Yeah I’m leaving
I hear the calling of the Lord
Now I’m leaving
I hear the calling of the Lord

I see the sun is rising
As another day begins
The Holy Spirit fills my soul
He comes from deep within

Don’t cry for me or wait for me
It’s just a waste of time
You know I’ve found the risen Lord
Leave the past behind

Now I’m leaving
I hear the calling of the Lord
Yeah I’m leaving
I hear the calling of the Lord

Maybe I’ll call. Maybe I’ll write
Maybe I won’t

‘Cause I’m leaving
I hear the calling of the Lord
Now I’m leaving
I hear the calling of the Lord

Beautiful Love

Written By: Union of Saints

Have you ever heard a secret
that you just couldn't keep inside?
Have you ever had some news
that you wanted to share not hide?
Lend me your ear and I’ll tell you
a secret
that I hope you won't keep inside.
Give me a moment I’ll tell you some
news
that I pray you will share not hide.

If you knew what I know you’d shout it from the mountaintops.
I know, I know, I know, you’d never stop.

Have you ever heard a story
that you wanted to run & shout?
Have you ever had a love
that you wanted to sing about?
Come over here & I’ll tell you a
story
that I know you will run & shout.
Listen close & I’ll tell of a love
that I know you will sing about.

If you knew what I know you’d shout it from the mountaintops.
I know, I know, I know, you’d never stop.

Oh how beautiful is the love of
God-
His love is forever.
And how wonderful are His
thoughts of you-
of peace & not evil.
Oh how marvelous is the love of
God-
His love is forever.
And how wonderful are his plans
for you-
a hope and a future.

Put your heart in his hands
& you'll see that His love is real.
Put your life in His love.
It's a beautiful love.

Oh how beautiful is the love of
God-
His love is forever.
And how wonderful are His
thoughts of you-
of peace & not evil.
Oh how marvelous is the love of
God-
His love is forever.
And how wonderful are his plans
for you-
a hope and a future.
