This DeSoto Times article, titled “Needtobreathe in a ‘good space’ as a band,” dives into the successes of the 20-year-old Christian band. Following their three albums in three years, Needtobreathe is now touring with the band Judah and the Lion. Keyboardist Josh Lovelace says, “Everybody’s just in a good space where we love the band, we love making music, but we don’t have to. It doesn’t feel like as much of a job as it has sometimes.”
