NEEDTOBREATHE is a GRAMMY-nominated rock band hailing from South Carolina, comprised of brothers Bear Rinehart (vocals, guitar) and Bo Rinehart (guitar, vocals), Seth Bolt (bass, vocals), and Josh Lovelace (keys, vocals).
Their most recent studio album H A R D L O V E released in 2016 and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Albums, Top Current Albums, Top Rock Albums and Top Alternative Albums charts and #2 on the Billboard 200, their greatest debut yet.
H A R D L O V E is the follow-up to 2014’s Rivers In the Wasteland, which debuted at #3 overall on the Billboard 200 and spawned the RIAA-certified Gold single “Brother (feat. Gavin DeGraw).” The hit earned the group their first GRAMMY nomination as well as a pair of Billboard Music Award nominations.
NEEDTOBREATHE, well known for the aggressive touring schedule and impressive live show, celebrated four consecutive sold out shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, as well as sell outs at Greek Theatre (Los Angeles), Ascend Amphitheatre (Nashville), Aragon Ballroom (Chicago), Verizon Theatre (DFW) and more.
Last July, NEEDTOBREATHE released their 4-track EP Forever On Your Side (Niles City Sound Sessions), which includes the single “Forever On Your Side (with JOHNNYSWIM),” and is the product of a ten day recording session at Niles City Sound in Fort Worth, Texas (the famed location where Leon Bridges’ GRAMMY®-nominated debut Coming Home was recorded).
NEEDTOBREATHE released their first-ever fully acoustic album – Acoustic Live Vol. 1 – in November 2018. The album, which was entirely self-recorded, produced and mixed/mastered, represents over a decade of music from the GRAMMY-nominated band, with songs spanning across five of their six studio albums.
“Trent Dabbs Will Make You An Optimist With ‘Good And Lasting”’ – NPR Music
Over the course of his career, Trent Dabbs has written a lot of songs. While you might not know his name, there’s a very good chance you’ve heard and know some of the songs Dabbs has written or co-written with others. The Nashville-based songwriter’s credits include “High Horse” from Grammy winning “Album of the Year” by Kacey Musgraves, Top 40 hit, “Girls Chase Boys” by Ingrid Michaelson, and new singles “Stay Around” and “Deep Water” by American Authors.
Since 2004, Dabbs has released 11 solo albums, including his new album, Positano. His songs have been performed & recorded by Ashley Monroe, Joy Williams (formerly of Civil Wars), COIN, Lucie Silvas and many others. With his wife, Kristen, he co-founded Nashville’s Ten Out of Tenn, a touring and performing collective of singer-songwriters in 2005. Dabbs also records and tours with Amy Stroup as Sugar + The Hi-Lows.
Positano is the follow-up to 2016’s The Optimist and already has a world-famous fan. The early single “Come Home Safe” was picked by Taylor Swift for her Songs Taylor Loves Spotify playlist. Today, World Cafe premieres his next single, “Good And Lasting.” With a John Lennon-esque vibe (it could fit in somewhere between “Watching The Wheels” and “Mind Games”), Dabbs’ melodic charm is in full effect, and the layered harmonies and sweeping, dreamy guitars welcome you into the song with open, loving arms.
