11 Reasons to Love NEEDTOBREATHE


NEEDTOBREATHE is one of my favorite bands. Here's why.

1. They are incredibly talented. Their voices. All those instruments. Just woah.

2. Every song is amazing. You know how some artists just have one or two great songs and the rest are just meh? That's not the case here. Every song is good. Even the really old stuff.

3. Their sound is unique and varied. No song sounds exactly like another.

4. Their faith shines through. It's awesome to hear their Christianity naturally come out in their songs.

5. They have really great hair. That's important, okay?

6. They sound even better live.

7. The music videos are cool. You know it's a good music video if someone is wearing an astronaut suit.


8. Sometimes banjos and harmonicas are involved.

9. Their lyrics rock.

Even when the rain falls
Even when the flood starts rising
Even when the storm comes
I am washed by the water

10. You can listen to NEEDTOBREATHE all day and not get sick of it. I've tested this hypothesis.

11. Apparently, it's good music to write blog posts to. I've been listening to them this whole blog post long, and it's been a fabulous experience. You should try it.

If you're interested, click *here* to go listen to one of my favorite songs by them!

Have you heard of this band? What artists have you been listening to lately? Let me know!

  1. I've just had a listen to them and oh my gosh they are so so good!! I think Wasteland is gonna be on repeat for the next few weeks! Thanks for the recommendation Hannah, I've got a feeling that they're gonna quickly become one of my favourite bands :)

    Hope you've had a lovely day!

  4. Hair is definitely important. ;-) I've heard a few of their songs, and I like them, but generally that isn't my favorite kind of music.

    Wow, that's so exciting that you got to see them live! Going to a concert by your favorite music group is one of the coolest things ever. This spring I got to see Celtic Woman live....SO amazing!

    2. I wish we could, Clara, but I don't think we're heading that way! :( That would've been really fun. Maybe another time! I've always wanted to see St. Louis.

      Thank you so much for the nomination!!

  8. I just "discovered" NEEDTOBREATHE recently because Switchfoot is playing a show with them this summer in Boston that I realllyy wanna go to. But I had never heard anything by NeedToBreathe. Now I am totally going to check them out! They sound fabulous. And the hair thing? I totally agree. It's important. Thank you for sharing this, girl! Hope you and your family are doing good! Enjoy Chicago :)

  9. A woman after my own heart, I see. :-) Needtobreathe is pretty much my favorite band. Has been ever since THE HEAT. You're right, they do sound awesome live. I saw them in Baton Rouge last year and had a blast! At one point, Bear and Bo performed "Brother" with nothing but an acoustic guitar to back them up, and you know what? I liked that better than the recorded version. I don't know of a whole lot of artists who could pull that off.

    Besides Needtobreathe, I've been listening to Damien Rice a lot lately. I'm just a wee bit obsessed with his songs "I Don't Want to Change You" and "My Favorite Faded Fantasy." I've also recently taken a liking to The Civil Wars, a year too late, it seems. :-(

  10. Oooh. I've never heard of NEEDTOBREATHE before, but they sound amazing. And I'm always looking (like quite a ravenous animal) for new music!! So thank you for sharing this. AND YES TO HAIR. <3 Ahemm.... Have fun in Chicago!! I hope you get to Skype with your kitties soon! :D

  11. I've heard of NEEDTOBREATH, but I've never listened to their music. But they sound like they're an awesome band, I'll check it out! Lately I've been enjoying some acoustic guitar pieces, and some older songs by Imagine Dragons and One Republic.

    I wanted to let you know that I tagged you for the Infinity Blog Award over at my blog, http://oyescribes.blogspot.com/ if you're interested!
