Along with his band — featuring Rich Zurkowski (bass), Sturgis Cunningham (drums) and Cyrus Madan (piano, organ and background vocals) — Sexton performs his own songs and pays tribute to keyboard legend Billy Preston, who died during the recording of Seeds. The singer-songwriter closes with a song the band often plays together: Johnny Cash's "Folsom Prison Blues."
