Info for Live From The Woods
Captured live at The Woods at Fontanel Amphitheatre in Nashville, TN on September 13, 2014. Two-disc album featuring 17 tracks, including fan favorites Multiplied, Keep Your Eyes Open, Washed By The Water, Something Beautiful and Brother. Needtobreathe was founded by brothers Bear and Bo Rinehart back in 2001. Seth Bolt joined the brothers in 2002, releasing an independent album. In 2004 the band signed with Atlantic Records and since then have released five studio albums, sold more than 800,000 albums and 2.4 million tracks, appeared on countless film, TV, and commercial syncs, won 10 Dove awards, and have been nominated for a Grammy®.
„Having opened for Taylor Swift's Speak Now Tour in 2011, Needtobreathe were already an experienced arena rock band by the time they produced their first full-length live album, Live from the Woods at Fontanel. Recorded on the heels of the success of their Billboard Top Five album Rivers in the Wasteland, it captures a high-intensity show at the 4,500-capacity Nashville venue on September 13, 2014. The record's 17 tracks represent songs from all but their debut album, including singles "The Outsiders" and "Brother." Part of the tour in support of Rivers in the Wasteland, the set list is weighted heavily toward that album, with all but two (no "Rise Again" or "Where the Money Is") of its 11 songs represented. Multiple tracks from 2009's The Outsiders and 2011's The Reckoning are included, as well as the bluesy "Washed by the Water" from their 2007 release The Heat. Live from the Woods experiences that can't be duplicated with the studio recordings include the eight-minute twangy jam version of "Oh, Carolina" and a version of "Wanted Man" that leads into an abbreviated hard rock cover of Modest Mouse's "Float On." Bear Rinehart's strong, sound-defining lead vocals are clear and mixed high throughout the record, but the crowd is still audible in quieter moments, such as clapping and singing along with "Multiplied" and "Something Beautiful." Overall, while the track selection doesn't quite substitute for a greatest-hits collection, the album captures a strong live band delivering a clean, energetic performance (including revealing stage banter) that is certain to please fans and an absolute must for anyone interested in a souvenir of the tour.“ (Marcy Donelson, AMG)

Raised in the small town of Possum Kingdom, South Carollina, brothers Bear and Bo Rinehart of the band NEEDTOBREATHE are spreading their majestic noise even further.
Both parents instilled a love of music in their boys – mom taught piano, while dad's younger years were spent touring as a trumpet player with such country legends as Roy Clark and Glen Campbell. In addition, the constant influx of new campers exposed the Rineharts to a wide variety of musical styles.
"Even though we were out in the boonies,' Bear says, 'every kind of kid from around the state would come to the camp, so we were exposed to a lot of music – rap, country, rock."
As the brothers approached their teens, the Rineharts moved to the slightly larger South Carolina town of Seneca . While growing up, they were first introduced to Christian rock bands like DC Talk and early Switchfoot. They soon discovered the wider musical landscape of bands like Pearl Jam, Travis, and the Black Crowes. Having learned the rudiments of guitar and piano at an early age, Bear began seriously playing guitar at 16 and almost immediately started writing original songs. It wasn't long before Bo also took up the instrument and began writing.
"Bo's incredibly artistic and creative,' Bear recalls. 'When he first started to play guitar, his attitude was like, 'I don't want to learn the rules. I'd rather just see what happens.' He was already thinking out of the box, trying to make his own way."
It was during his freshman year in college that Bear, and his longtime friend, drummer Joe Stillwell, started NEEDTOBREATHE. Brother Bo joined in along with friend seth Bolt on bass and before long, the band amplified their sound and quickly began booking frequent gigs around South Carolina .
NEEDTOBREATHE toured constantly, playing dozens of gigs around the Southeast, from Alabama to Virginia, both as headliners as well as with such artists as Switchfoot, Graham Colton, Edwin McCain, and Collective Soul. Their hard work saw the rise of an ardent fan following, known as 'the Breathers' who act as an independent street team spreading the word about their favorite band.
'People were always saying to us, 'If you ever need anything...?'' Bear says.' We thought, 'Well, we do need something,' it's really about kids telling other kids about us.'
Along with the non-stop road work, NEEDTOBREATHE also laid down a series of recordings at Plantation Studios, the studio Bolt – who has a degree in record engineering – opened when he was just 16. The band recorded three self-released EPs at Plantation, ultimately selling more than 15,000 copies.
When time came to make the album proper, they opted to record in England with producer Andy Green (Keane, KT Tunstall) at the controls. Their Lava/Atlantic debut, "Daylight" was released in 2006. With songs like ‘Shine On’ and the powerful first single, “You Are Here,” the album is rich with sweeping sonics and heartfelt emotions that are both deeply individual and wholly universal.
The bands eagerly anticipated second album, "The Heat" was released in 2007. Songs such as the acoustic-tinged “Again” and the rejoiceful “Signature of Divine (Yahweh)” see the band melding warm, organic textures to their powerful brand of skyscraping, heartfelt rock. With “THE HEAT,” NEEDTOBREATHE blazes a new musical trail, revealing not just the depth of its spirit, but the far reaches of its soul.
“There are moments in music – maybe it’s a whole song, sometimes it’s just a portion – that when you hear it, it just breaks you down,” says singer/guitarist/pianist/songwriter Bear Rinehart. “We really wanted to get those kinds of moments on this record. We wanted this record to hit people in a really strong way.”
“There was this vibe that we were all working on this record and nobody had any real ego things, which is very rare,” Rinehart says. “It was a completely fluid relationship, which I think made the record a lot better.”
We felt like we could be more ourselves,” Rinehart explains. “When we were in places like San Francisco and played a song with a southern vibe, people still got it. It gave us a confidence that those things have a universal appeal. So making the record, if we wanted to use harmonica or slide guitar, things that are more southern, we went for it.”
The use of such instruments as an antique 1800s pump organ (on the band-produced closer, “Second Chances”) are striking but completely right, adding history and depth to the album’s rich texture. Songs such as “We Could Run Away” and “More Time” sound heartfelt and alive, given strength and identity from a musical approach that Rinehart describes as adding “a little grit to things.”
"Having grown up in church, the sounds of gospel are intrinsically woven into the Rineharts’ musical DNA. As NEEDTOBREATHE reached inward, inspirational sounds began to inform their work, notably on “Washed By The Water,” which recasts an old time spiritual as rousing modern rock, and the self-described “worship song,” “Signature of Divine (Yahweh).” Anthemic yet down-to-earth, the track seamlessly knits touches of gospel and R&B into the band’s cinemascope sound.
NEEDTOBREATHE returned to the studio and released "The Outsiders" in 2009.
With "The Outsiders" ready to rise, NEEDTOBREATHE have already gotten back to their first love – playing live. 'We're really excited about going out there and just hitting it as hard as we can,' Bear says. 'We get a lot of validation from playing to new crowds, from playing to people who have no idea who we are. We just go out there and all of a sudden, these people that never heard our music before are being moved and hopefully inspired by what we do. We all think there's a great reward in that.'
