Breathe Carolina is an Electronica and Screamo[1] band from Denver, Colorado, composed of Kyle Even and David Schmitt. When the band tours, they have live musicians that play with them, one being Joshua Andrew, who has his own project, The Spin Cycle. The live musicians add synth (Luis), keytar (Josh Andrew), sound guy, samples, and lights (Eric) and soon a drummer(Unknown). According to the band, the etymology of the band' s name refers to a dream one of the group's members had "encouraging an older woman, Carolina, to calm down in the midst of stressful circumstances"[2]

Background Edit

In years past, Kyle was conscripted by some middle school friends to front their band. As time passed, he would refine his vocal abilities in a variety of situations. Meanwhile, David was playing guitar in slower, indie rock ensembles. Their mutual friends drew them into each others orbit, and soon they were living in the same house. [2]

According to Kyle Even, "Breathe Carolina just kind of happened. "We really didn't think about it much. I was playing in another band, and so was David, but we were falling out of those. We had a lot of fun writing together, so we thought, 'Let's just do this, and see what happens.'" In early 2007, they started a Myspace page, hoping to get 20 or so listeners. However, almost immediately they began building a name for themselves. On November 26, 2008, the duo made their first music video, with Director Robby Starbuck, for the song "Diamonds."

At a 2008 show, Kyle and David announced to a few fans at a show they will be coming to Los Angeles, CA, in a few months to begin recording with producer Mike Green.

Tours Edit

The duo has toured relentlessly, sharing the stage with contemporaries such as The Spin Cycle, The Secret Handshake, Millionaires, and BrokeNCYDE.[3] Their lastest tour, "The Delicious Tour," was along side Pierce The Veil and Emarosa.

On December 19th 2008, it was announced that Breathe Carolina would be participating in the Vans Warped Tour 2009. They are currently on tour with Cute Is What We Aim For, Meg & Dia, Every Avenue, and Anarbor as part of the 2009 Take Action Tour!.[4]
