This past Sunday, we were able to catch NeedToBreathe with Sons of William at 3rd and Lindsley here in Nashville. We went primarily to see Sons of William, but I had never heard of either band before hearing about the show. I was pleasantly surprised by both bands.
The show was broadcast live on the radio, and as a result the Sons of William set was fairly short. However, they managed to pack a pretty good set into 30 minutes despite some equipment issues early on. I would have liked to have seen a longer set, as they really seemed to be hitting their stride during the last few songs. What I heard was good, though, and I would recommend you catch them if they come to your area.
I had heard that Sons of William were good, but I knew nothing about NeedToBreathe. Surprisingly, they ended up being the highlight of the night. They really put on a great show! They have recently released a new record called The Heat, which was co-produced by the band with Rick Beato and Collective Soul’s Ed Roland. Some of their songs have been featured in the movie P.S. I Love You and on the tv show Newport Harbor. They played quite a few songs from the album, and I really enjoyed them.
Overall, the show was fantastic and I’d highly recommend checking out either band if they come to your area. You can watch a video below of “Shine On” from NeedToBreathe’s first album Daylight.
