iTunes Review

Rivers in the Wasteland is the fifth studio album by South Carolina’s NEEDTOBREATHE. The collection continues the acoustic trio’s knack for conjuring up airy and appealing alt-folk tunes with spiritually-imbued lyrics. Lead singer Bear Rinehart’s breathy timbre and thoughtful lyrics provide a redemptive aspect to songs like the pared-down “Wasteland” and the stirring “Rise Again”. As always, Rinehart is backed by the accomplished bass playing of Seth Bolt and virtuous lead guitar, banjo and mandolin assists from his brother Bo Reinhart.

One of the best live bands Ever to walk on stage

I saw NTB with Ben Rector in Toronto, 2013 and they blew the doors off the place, setting a new standard by which I judge live acts. I have to admit that I was somewhat angry following the show that I hadn't heard of them before and that I had spent years without their music. Their exceptional live performances, combined with a rare every-song-is-a-hit repertoire will mean that one day I'll be able to say I was there when it all began ...


Great job! In an age where lyrics are seemingly becoming less important than the beat, it is refreshing to see a band produce GREAT music with such powerful lyrics. If I had to pick my favourite song, it would be “Brother."

Worth every penny.

I never write reviews. For anything. But every once in awhile something comes along that shatters expectations I didn’t even know I had. NeedToBreathe consistently delivers. This band has singlehandedly redeemed their genre. If they aren’t in your music library, then shame on you.
