Gasp! Debut Act NEEDTOBREATHE Lands CCM Cover Story

Brentwood, TN (Sparrow Records) - You don't see this very often. Debut rock act NEEDTOBREATHE has already landed on the cover of CCM magazine just days before its mega-acclaimed first album, Daylight, hits stores on April 4.

In its second annual "!" issue, CCM "highlights the artists, music, trends, events, entertainment, activities and more that are '!' in and around the world of Christian music. Calling this The Year of the New Artist, "The CCM odds makers are picking South Carolina natives NEEDTOBREATHE to lead the remarkable freshman class of 2006."
Elsewhere in the same issue, NEEDTOBREATHE gets the lead album review and is listed among the magazine staff's 10 New Albums You Should Hear.

Editor Jay Swartzendruber writes, "As a full-length debut, NEEDTOBREATHE's Daylight is both surprising and engaging musically. The album - as in every song - is defined by both sweeping hooks and an emphasis on melody . . . Simply put, Daylight is so deep on potential rock radio singles, this disc would make a good 'best of' album for a lot of other bands. (Did I mention this is a debut?)"

NEEDTOBREATHE is a quartet led by brothers Bear and Bo Rinehart, former all-star athletes who have also clearly excelled in their musical abilities. Notably, Daylight (featuring first single "You Are Here") was recorded in England with mainstream producer Andy Green (Keane, KT Tunstall). The band is signed to both Christian (Sparrow) and general market (Lava/Atlantic) record deals with the goal of bringing a positive message and sound to a wider range of music fans.
