Brothers Bryant “Bo” (guitar) and Bear Rinehart (vocalist) along with Joe Stillwell (drummer) and Seth Bolt (bassist) formed Needtobreathe in 2002 in Seneca, SC. The group’s first album was released in 2006 with Atlantic/Lava Records, followed by another in 2007 that solidified their Christian rock popularity. The band continued to produce a total of six albums through 2014, with their final recoding to date being Live at the Woods from Fontanel, which was released in the spring of 2015. The release of this album also paved the way for the group’s first-ever North American tour as a headlining act.

There's something to be said for a man who's not ashamed to admit that "no man is an island". This anthem is like a 21st century version of Ben E. King's "Stand By Me" and cuts to the core of what it means to be supportive of each other through thick and thin. The fact that the band's vocalist (Bear) and guitarist (Bo) are brothers solidifies the literal meaning, but it can just as easily relate to any true and worthy friend or comrade.
