Artists / Breathe Carolina
When Dave Schmitt and Kyle Even formed Breathe Carolina in 2007 they didn't anticipate that their project which started "just for fun" would explode into an internationally sought-after band in just two short years. But like all the best, most exciting new bands, Breathe Carolina’s unprecedented story began with a fan-base that grew organically, fueled by an enviable, rapidly spreading word- of-mouth, and the undeniable spark of something unique. The story of Breathe Carolina is a modern day music fairytale – one about two friends who recorded tracks on GarageBand at home in Denver, CO, put them on to MySpace and rapidly gained a huge online following that transformed their hobby into a career, and them into stars. “We got started just by hanging out,” reflects Kyle. “We just sat in a room and threw ideas back and forth, and had to take trips to the library to talk to people online because we didn't have internet at our house. We honestly weren't expecting anything, we just made some songs and people started hitting us up about them. It's been way crazier than anything we could have imagined it to be.” Gaining over nine million plays on MySpace, they self-released their debut EP Gossip on iTunes, and after a phenomenal response released their debut album It’s Classy, Not Classic in 2008, which entered the Billboard Top 200 at #186. Their genre-clashing blend of crowd-pleasing pop, rock and electronica was a hit, and no longer confined to the bedroom – Breathe Carolina were a global force ready to be heard. Featuring killer lead single "Blackout" a bevy of 80's tinged electro melodies and hip-shakingly infectious driving beats-every inch of "Hell Is What You Make It" is designed to grab you by the hand and drag you to the dance floor. Bring on the good times - Breathe Carolina is about to give you the time of your lives!
