Opening Acts: Josh Wilson, Samestate
It is truly magic when the four members of NEEDTOBREATHE take the stage. The band has honed their live show the old-fashioned way-putting in the time, spending years on the road. Aside from their skillful musicianship, there's a spontaneous energy that intangibly connects them with their audience, and their powerful performances have helped build a dedicated fan base that's been clamoring for The Outsiders.
Talk to singer/songwriter Josh Wilson for very long, and you're bound to get a laugh. He infuses humor into even the minor details - like the "No Thanks" section of his liner notes, in which he calls out high gas prices, cavities, pop-up ads, and the Black Smoke Monster from "Lost." That deadpan sense of humor, not to mention a crop of cleverly constructed songs, definitely makes Josh stand out in a crowd.
