Early media reviews are raving about Clear The Stage, and the growth of Needham as an artist and songwriter.
Phantom Tollbooth – This may be Needham’s best and most mature recording to date, and the way he sings “Clear The Stage” is worth hearing.
JesusFreakHideout.com – The theme of “Clear The Stage” cannot be missed as it is weaved throughout the entire album. Needham is focused on eternity and drawing closer to God.
Hollywood Jesus – With Clear The Stage, the influences are diverse, but the ten-song disc is cohesive and solid.
Christian Manifesto – He has paved for himself a unique path with his distinctive voice,
brilliant songwriting, and mixture of various music styles. And it works.
