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. Composed of brothers Bear Rinehart and Bo Rinehart, Seth Bolt and Josh Lovelace, the band hit their big break in 2005, when they signed to Atlantic/Lava/Word Records. Following this record deal, Needtobreathe earned massive chart-topping cross-genre success, multiple headlining tours, and four full studio albums. The bands 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.

Ben Rector has a theory: The beauty of life resides in the everyday moments. On his new album, “The Walking in Between,” he sets those ordinary moments to some extraordinary music. This new set follows his previous two successful independent releases, 2010’s “Into the Morning” and 2011’s “Something Like This,” which have collectively sold over 70,000 copies. Both albums were iTunes leaders, with “Something Like This” reaching Number 1 on the digital retailer’s singer/songwriter albums chart. Having toured consistently since his junior year at the University of Arkansas, the young artist has spent the past six years building an impressive fan-base that enables him to routinely sell-out clubs and theatres nationally. While Ben says he didn’t set out to make a live-in-the-studio record, he made sure not to plan anything too meticulously. The result is a purposefully organic experience based on relatable songwriting and authentic performances.

Since releasing their first album, 2005’s “Washed In Blue,” Drew Holcomb & The Neighbors (Ellie Holcomb, Nathan Dugger, Rich Brinsfield) have established themselves as a formidable indie act, selling more than 75,000 records, playing more than 1,500 lives dates, selling-out headline shows, and touring alongside varied acts such as The Avett Brothers, Ryan Adams, Los Lobos, NEEDTOBREATHE and more. On their newest album, “Good Light” Drew wrote music drawing from personal experience to craft songs that speak to all of us, he explores the universal need to find that meaning and joy in the midst of heartbreak and disappointment.

In a relatively brief span of time, Colony House has emerged as a vibrant creative force, as well as a beloved fan favorite with a passionate, fiercely loyal fan base. That audience is likely to expand substantially with the release of When I Was Younger, the Nashville, TN first full-length album, whose 14 compelling original tunes fulfill the abundant promise of the band’s three widely-acclaimed, self-released EP’s. Lead singer, guitarist and principal songwriter Caleb Chapman writes effortlessly infectious tunes that resonate with personal experience and emotional authority. The songs' messages of faith, hope and perseverance are matched by the organic musical rapport of Caleb and his bandmates, brother Will Chapman on drums and Scott Mills on lead guitar and harmony vocals. "The songs I write have always come from deep places, whether they're deep places of joy or deep places of hurt, and it can be hard inviting people into those places with you," Caleb states.
