Rinehart has been sharing intimate, stripped-down versions of his singles, beginning with “Maestro (Tears Don’t Lie)” and now with “Be Yourself” out today. Next up is his rendering of “Make Your Own Mistakes,” which will be available on May 24th. Listen to “Be Yourself (Stripped)” HERE.
In addition, Rinehart continues to impress fans on his FEVER / SKY U.S. headline tour which has been selling out in major markets. A full list of tour dates follows and can also be found HERE.
On FEVER / SKY, Bear Rinehart (also known as the frontman for Grammy-nominated, chart-topping band NEEDTOBREATHE) explores a different creative outlet outside of the larger group dynamic. Wilder Woods offers Rinehart the opportunity to experiment and grow with different sounds, styles and textures, while also embracing new challenges along the way. He shares, "I'm giving myself the freedom to do what I want to do and say what I want to say. This isn't the kind of journey where I'm worried about the places I'm headed or the places I've left; it's a journey where I'm just happy to be in the car, driving forward."
