Atlantic recording group Needtobreathe makes a powerful homecoming with its eagerly anticipated second album, The Heat. Coproduced by the band alongside Rick Beato (Shinedown, Jump Little Children) and Collective Soul mastermind Ed Roland, the record sees the South Carolina-based rock outfit digging into its down-home roots to create a remarkably passionate and personal new collection.

Kyle Patrick, former Berklee College of Music student and current lead singer of the internationally renowned performing group the Click Five, will also be taking the stage with Berklee alumnus Jesse Ruben.

Alternative pop songster Andy Davis returns this fall with his piano and soaring falsetto for his first full-band LP. Recorded in 10 days in Los Angeles with renowned producer Mitchell Froom (Sheryl Crow, Los Lobos, Elvis Costello, Crowded House, Randy Newman), Let the Woman is a collection of songs that separates Davis from the crowd. Earning comparisons from Ben Folds to Paul Simon to Badly Drawn Boy, as well as the classic story-centered songwriting of Billy Joel, this Nashville-based 25-year-old embraces a range of times, influences, and genres, his distinctive melodies and infectious layered vocals anchored by personal yet universal lyrics. Davis has recently signed a deal with bigHelium records and Barnes & Noble, who will exclusively release and promote Let the Woman this fall in their more than 700 stores located throughout the United States.
