Welcome to the world of Christian crossover. NEEDTOBREATHE have been at the forefront of Christian crossover music for some time.
Following the example of bands such as Switchfoot and Lauren Daigle, they combine gospel-centric messages with modern language and sounds to create a compelling style of music for Christian and non-Christian listeners alike.
The now three-piece band led by William Stanley “Bear” Rinehart III have been active since 2001 with albums like The Heat, The Outsiders, Rivers in the Wasteland and HARDLOVE taking the alternative Christian Rock scene by storm.
