Biography

Reinvented - That is the central idea behind the new NEEDMORE new album, We Are.

"The world of music continues to transcend, and that's what I will constantly strive for with NEEDMORE," says their main songwriter and lead vocalist Garrett McArthur.

With their last release, Back At The Start, in 2012, the group is due for a release.

"We have all been through so much this past year, we really felt taking time off before being creative again was the best plan," says McArthur.

Currently, NEEDMORE is holed up in a Los Angeles - based studio, recording their third studio album. Having released their last EP on their own label, MMG (distribution via Island Def Jam), they remain completely independent - that is, for now.

Being named the #1 Rock Band by partners MTV and OurStage, and dubbed an "Artist on the Verge" by New Music Seminar, NEEDMORE obviously has appeal. So much so, they have independently reached #1 on several US music charts, and have been named and NME "Breakthrough" Artist in the UK. If that weren't enough, the band was featured by Microsoft, on the front page of their "Mindowns Media" campaign, had their single "Lost My Way" chosen for Delta Airlines, "in-flight programming," and have been featured in major motion pictures and promo's for television commercials. To say the least, the spotlight is on them.

Having several Grammy-winners in your corner, such as Jeff Juliano (John Mater, Train, Lifehouse), Brad Blackwood (Maroon 5, Alison Krauss), Ainslie Grosser (Chris Tomlin, Rebecca St. James) to name a few isn't a bad thing! Interestingly enough, the band is so much more than a great recording band. Their packed tour schedule speaks for itself. Having joined bands such as Train, John Legend, Andy Grammer, Mat Kearney, Gym Glass Heroes, Guster, Tony Lucca, and many more, the NEEDMORE expirience seems seasoned beyond their years. What makes them more impressive is they've toured over 75,000 miles ON THEIR OWN, without the support of a record label.

Maybe it comes by way of their perfectionistic attitude towards their performance, or maybe it stems from the fact that when they tour, they play non-stop, 25 of 30 days per month. Whatever it is, everyone sees it. They have been invited back by 100% of the venues they have played, and have been a #1 booked act at NACA. It is safe to say their live show is a MUST SEE, and that it is only a matter of time before NEEDMORE is a household name.

Lyrics

Too Late

Written By: Garrett McArthur, Kacey McArthur, Mark Siegel

NEEDMORE - TOO LATE

please can you let me in this time
I'm not blind; I can see the situation
but I have to speak my mind tonight
before my apathetic senses set in
and this is all so clear
we can mend all of those fears
know I'm not insincere - no, no

it's been a while, it's too late
it's been a while, it's too late
it's been a while, it's too late; too late
so let go and don't wait
let yourself tempt fate
it's been a while, it's too late; too late

do I have to spell it out for you
you know it's never gonna be that simple
you know you've got to let this go
I know you're feeling that time's moving slow
and you'll find, you'll find that time, is on your side
and it's okay to feel alive - you'll be alright, you'll be alright

it's been a while, it's too late
it's been a while, it's too late
it's been a while, it's too late; too late
so let go and don't wait
let yourself tempt fate
it's been a while, it's too late; too late

it's too late, so let go
it's too late, so let go, let go, you've gotta let go
it's too late, so let go
it's too late, so let go, let go, you've gotta let go

reelin' minds tend to waste their time
so lighten your heavy heart
lend yourself some peace of mind
you can't just play the part
so let go, so let go

it's been a while, it's too late
it's been a while, it's too late
it's been a while, it's too late; too late
so let go and don't wait
let yourself tempt fate
it's been a while, it's too late; too late

it's too late, so let go
it's too late, so let go, let go, you've gotta let go
it's too late, so let go
it's too late, so let go, let go, you've gotta let go

Back At The Start

Written By: Garrett McArthur

NEEDMORE - BACK AT THE START

oh no, let's go back to the start this time
and I think you'll come to find
we're better off now than we once were
time is running out the door

I've found what I once was looking for
I don't need you anymore
had you come along when I needed you most
we'd be back at the start

so let's go back to where it all began
the time when you and I were just friends
now so black and cold, remembering that dark night
and the things that were said - but now

I've found what I once was looking for
I don't need you anymore (whoa)
had you come along when I needed you most
we'd be back at the start

cheers to the nights we felt alive
with passion that burned so bright
when we were all alone
I'm so sad to see you go
I said back and forth now here we go; here we go
we're lookin' for the right way we can show; we can show
one another that we've got it right
I said back and forth now here we go; here we go
we're lookin' for the right way we can show; we can show
one another that we've got it right

I've found what I once was looking for
I don't need you anymore (whoa)
had you come along when I needed you most
we'd be back at the start (whoa)
yeah we'd be back at the start (whoa)
we'd be back at the start (whoa)
we'd be back at the start (whoa)

Lost My Way

Written By: Garrett McArthur

NEEDMORE - LOST MY WAY

lost - I've lost so much faith in my trying ways
that I find I have to pick myself off this floor tonight
and I, I, I have got to try, try
to put down my pride and hide my shame

if I lost my way, would you carry me
through the depths of this world, and not look back at all
if I lost my way, would you carry me
tonight, forever, and not look back at all

and you, you get so close that it hurts sometimes
the smile lines on your face are fading
but somehow you find a way to face me
when I need you the most

if I lost my way, would you carry me
through the depths of this world, and not look back at all
if I lost my way, would you carry me
tonight, forever, and not look back at all

I'll get back to where I want to be
can you see me
this is where I stand
I need you tonight

if I lost my way, would you carry me
through the depths of this world, and not look back at all
if I lost my way, would you carry me
tonight, forever, and not look back at all

I've lost my way (if I lost my way, would you carry me)
I've lost my way (if I lost my way, would you carry me home)
I've lost my way (if I lost my way, would you carry me)
I've lost my way (if I lost my way, would you carry me home)
