NEEDTOBREATHE is a GRAMMY-nominated, American Rock ‘n’ Roll Band from South Carolina, effortlessly woven from the musical traditions and faith of their upbringing in the Deep South of the United States. Made up of brothers Bear Rinehart (vocals, guitar) and Bo Rinehart (guitar, vocals), Seth Bolt (bass, vocals) and Josh Lovelace (keys, vocals), the band hit their big break in 2005 when they signed to Atlantic/Lava/Word Records. The career to follow would include four full studio albums, chart-topping cross-genre success, multiple headlining tours and media coverage on CONAN, The Ellen Degeneres Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno, Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, Late Show with David Letterman, CBS, MTV, FOX and much more. The band’s critically acclaimed fifth studio album, Rivers In the Wasteland was released on April 15, 2014, and debuted at #3 on the Billboard Top 200 Chart.
When you record the type of smart, catchy songs Mat Kearney cut for his 2006 album Nothing Left to Lose, you end up spending a lot of time on the road. And after that album’s title track throttled up the charts, that’s exactly what Kearney did. Three years later, he returns with City of Black & White, an album informed by the traveling, performing and adventuring the Oregon-born, Nashville-based singer did while supporting his breakthrough album.
John Mark McMillan
John Mark McMillan is a songwriter and musician within the Christian music industry.
In 2002, he released his debut album Hope Anthology, Volume 1. In 2005 he released The Song Inside the Sounds of Breaking Down, which included the track “How He Loves”. The song was successful despite the album’s independent release, and has been covered by several well-known artists within the Christian music industry (David Crowder Band, Kim Walker, Jared Anderson, Todd Agnew, New Breed, Flyleaf, The Glorious Unseen, Hillsong Music Australia, Kari Jobe, Diante do Trono, Ana Paula Valadão). The song has sentimental meaning for McMillan, who wrote it following the death of a dear friend who, during a church staff meeting, prayed out loud “If it would shake the youth of a nation, I will give my life today.” McMillan was awakened in the middle of the same night by a phone call; the friend had been killed in a car crash. He wrote “How He Loves” the next morning as, “a celebration of a God who would want to hang with us…despite who we are”. The song took more than a year to surface in the Christian mainstream, but has gone on to become a commonly played worship song on Christian radio and throughout church organizations.
WELSHLY ARMS combines their love of blues with rhythm and soul & good ol’ rock and roll, to create a fresh throwback sound that represents their Midwestern roots. Comprised of Sam Getz (vocals/guitar), Brett Lindemann (keys/vocals), Jimmy Weaver (bass/vocals), and Mikey Gould (drums), Cleveland-based WELSHLY ARMS pays homage to many of their collective musical influences. Listen to “The Touch” or “Two Seconds Too Late” from their debut E.P. Welcome, and you just might hear a little Jimi Hendrix, The Temptations, Otis Redding, or Howlin Wolf.
