Today’s “Featured Artist and Song of the Day” showcases Possum Kingdom, South Carolina’s own, NEEDTOBREATHE, with their song, “Drive All Night,” off their album, The Reckoning, released September 19, 2011, through Atlantic Recording.  The record was done over seven months, with the majority of it done at their Plantation Studios, which is located in Charleston, SC.  It was also co-produced by the band with Rick Beato, who also worked with them on their two previous records, The Heat and The Outsiders.  The talented group consists of musicians:  Bear Rinehart (Lead Vocals, Guitar),Bo Rinehart (Guitar, Back-up Vocals), Seth Bolt (Bass, Back-up Vocals), and Joe Stillwell (Drums, Back-up Vocals).

When talking about the album, guitarist Bo Rinehart, through their website said, “We considered every note, every sound, and every lyric that went on this album.  Everything was put through the ‘Do we really believe in this or not,’ filter. We never settled. We were looking for a spark. Sometimes in the studio you’ve got to keep searching until something happens that feels magical. We were waiting for that moment to strike on each song before we called this album finished.”

These words begin the song, “Drive All Night,”

“I ain’t lookin for a free ride home
Back to the middle
I need a new locale
I need a girl who calls me baby
I need to know if she can save me
I need somewhere I can drive all night
Out into the darkness
Follow the headlights down
I gotta know if they can take me
I gotta know if they can save me

Focus in on every word
Change my path
Maybe I could leave a mark
Try and prove the poets wrong
There must be time
Maybe we could be the song
To march us on…”
