NEEDTOBREATHE has been one of the most successful ‘Christian’ rock bands in the past decade. Originally from South Carolina, they’ve brought country and rock influences to contemporary Christian pop music. Their album “Hard Love” from 2016 was a worldwide hit in all the music charts. Laurel Daigle’s “Look Up Child” only surpassed this record milestone in 2018.
The band started in 2001 with the brothers Bear and Bo Rinehart, who joined forces with Seth Bolt. From the early years they’ve started to play in front of coffee house audiences at Furman University. Bear was also active as a wide receiver for their football team in that period of the band.
The freshly born band also started to produce independent albums and EPs at that time, which quickly caught the attention of Lava Records in 2004. They even signed the band shortly after taking their interest in them. This resulted in many studio albums and plenty of great notations in the Christian music charts over the years.
Their biggest success by date is their sixth studio album “Hard Love,” which they’ve released in 2016. The album immediately debuted at No. 1 on the Top Album Sales chart and at No. 2 on the Billboard 200. Listen to “NEEDTOBREATHE” on Maasbach Radio, Spotify and ITunes.← BackNext →
