Concert Gallery: NEEDTOBREATHE “Rock The Plaza” in Foxboro, MA

July 20, 2011 by  
Filed under Latest Photo Galleries

NEEDTOBREATHE recently took up shop on the “Rock The Plaza” stage in Foxboro, MA at Patriot Place for a free show. 

The band also filmed a segment fo Totally Patriots while they were there. Totally Patriots is the Kraft Sports Productions’ youth-oriented, Patriots-themed television show that airs on CBS affiliate, WBZ-TV, on Sunday mornings during the football season. The show this year will feature interviews with bands that focus on the relationship between music and football, and how NFL teams like the Patriots influence the artists, personally and professionally. 

We sent our resident NEEDTOBREATHE aficionado out to the show to take some pictures – oh who are we kidding, she was just there to support her boys, but she managed to snap some shots for us while she was there!  Check out the gallery below. 

Do you think it’s safe to say that NEEDTOBREATHE are now New England Patriot fans? To learn more about NEEDTOBREATHE head to their official website here.

Joe Stillwell of NEEDTOBREATHE

April 22, 2010 by  
Filed under Interviews

With their latest album “The Outsiders” NEEDTOBREATHE has really come into their own with their personal brand of southern infused rock that defies all boundaries.  Aptly titled, “The Outsiders” offers up a little bit of everything from the honest, emotive, guttural tune “Something Beautiful” to the more rock oriented “Prisoner” where guitar solos and blues take over to the more orchestral elements of “Garden” to the duet with Nickel Creek’s Sara Watkins “Stones Under Rushing Water”.  While the band has always made a concerted effort not to be limited to any sort of genre, the overall cohesiveness of the album may be due in part to the band working with three different producers on the album – each with their own purpose.  A well thought out decision for the band had them seek out the best producers for certain elements of the album who worked in unison with the band who co-produced.

The band, comprised of brothers Bear and Bo Rinehart and childhood friends Seth Bolt and Joe Stillwell have been together long enough to know each other’s strengths and it’s never more present than during their live show – admittedly their favorite place to be.  The energy that they are able to conjure up through their live show is nothing short of addictive and has built them a fanbase that would probably follow them to the ends of the earth, if there was a show scheduled at the end of the journey.  The NEEDTOBREATHE live experience is something that should be on everyone’s bucket list.

Drummer Joe Stillwell took some time to talk to us as the band geared up for the summer leg of their current tour.  Having been home for only a few short weeks the band was already jonzin’ to get back out there and do what they do best.
