Features NEEDTOBREATHE and Burlap To Cashmere
After wrapping up a successful, acclaim-filled 2006, which featured the release of the much-heralded album Good Monsters, multi-Platinum selling, multi-GRAMMY Award winning band Jars of Clay prepares to launch an ambitious spring schedule of
shows throughout the United States and Canada, featuring special guests NEEDTOBREATHE and Burlap to Cashmere.
Reflecting on the bandâ€™s time on the road in the fall of â€™06, Jars of Clayâ€™s Dan Haseltine said, â€œIt was great getting to play our new songs on the road, but I think my favorite part about touring is being able to reconnect with and make new fans.â€
Few bands in America could challenge NEEDTOBREATHEâ€™s sheer number of miles logged and shows played in 2006, with their own year-long club tour interlaced with shows opening for artists such as Train, Collective Soul, Cowboy Mouth and Edwin McCain. The South Carolina-based quartet’s debut record Daylight has garnered fans from all corners of the country, and the band will spend their spring bringing their high-energy rock to Jars of Clay’s fans before hitting the studio hard for a late â€˜07 release.
Steven Delopoulus and John Philippides comprise the core of Burlap to Cashmere, the Brooklyn-based folk-rock outfit that arrived with a splash with their major label debut Anybody Out There? Now performing as an acoustic duo, Delopoulus and Philippides, cousins offstage as well as musical partners on, bring BtCâ€™s dynamic sound to Jars of Clayâ€™s spring tour. [Read more…]
