Breathe Artist Bio and Lyrics
Breathe, formed in the early 1980s, enjoyed a short and brief success as an eighties band. The band hailed from London, England and began its early years as a six man jazz group, Catch 22.
With the name change to Breathe, the band would lose two members and move on to record their most notable singles.
Breathe's first album, All That Jazz enjoyed a brief success, yielding Breathe’s major hits, “Hands to Heaven,” and “How Can I Fall?” Following the release of All That Jazz, Michael Delahunty (bassist) left the band. The three remaining would release thge Breathe album Piece of Mind in 1990 but it would prove mostly unsuccessful. After this lack of success, Breathe disbanded in later 1990.
Despite their short time, Breathe would release quite a few, moderately successful singles. “Don’t Tell Me Lies,” would reach number 77 in the U.K. they later released it however and it climbed to number ten in the U.S. and 45 in the U.K. Other singles, such as “Say a Prayer,” would arrive at number 22; but aside from these moderately successful singles few others made it to the top 50.

Breathe, one of the best groups I've ever heard! Hands to Heaven, my fav!!! Who said men don't love hard - the words in that song are lovingly lovely and peaceful to the soul. So glad radio stations carry these tunes else we would never know these retro songs exists. Thanks to Breathe and to the radio industry for keeping love alive! Would love to find and own the original Breathe tunes on cassette tape or cd - can you steer me in the right direction? Can't find anywhere in my local Philly shopping areas nor does Columbia House offer. Please help! Thanks.

I had that cassette of their songs. Everynite I would play "hands to heaven" and "how can i fall." I would listen to the whole cassette, but those 2 were my favorite...got me thru many stressful times. Too bad I don't have it anymore. I think someone lifted it from me. If I ever see the cassette anywhere, I gotta buy it.

The song, "Hands to Heaven," is very special to my husband and I. It became our song when we were dating, and he went off to college. It still remains our song to this day. I would love to write the band and let them know how much the song means to us.

Is it true that one of the members of Breathe died in 2002? Finally have the All that Jazz tape. Took an absolute age to get. Long live the heavy Breathers!

I have both the albums mentioned here and I love them both! They got me through high school - listening to their music.

I think I found out what happen to David Glasper
I found this music magazine called Sound On Sound in the UK where he is the review editor.
Looking at him now and reading his comments makes me think you sort of shunned by the music labels or industry for not picking him up as a solo artist.He seems to point to media interests for schlock and mediorcre kind of music like David Hasselhoff (lol).

Hands To Heaven
Hands To Heaven has been my all time favorite song since it came out in the 80's... I don't think there has been, nor will be, a song that can ever top the beauty of it's melody or words...

This band was one of only a few good bands out of the 1980's that had any kind of good hang time talent, to bad David Glasper could not pull them back together before Ian Spice passed away .He was a very talented drummer and will be missed by all his friends, family and fans.

I love this band!
I had All That Jazz on vinyl and Peace of Mind on CD as a kid.
Great music , never understood why they were not more successful in

My 80's Favorite
Hands To Heaven...how to put into words...a musical narcotic. Thats how I best describe it.The most intoxicating love letter ever written. I've turned my 14 year old daughter onto it and I must say I never thought there would ever be anyone who could listen to that song more than myself. Obviously great taste is inherited!lol The down side is David Glasper isnt pushing those delicious narcotics anymore. The upside...whenever we need a dose we'll always have (Hands To Heaven & How Can I Fall)! One of the 80's greatest offerings.

Now I can Breathe again.
I was sixteen and falling in love with a very special girl. These dudes helped me express my feelings and this I am truelly grateful to them. Johny hates Jazz and Climie Fisher were of assistance also..... Hey we all needed a little help in the 80's .

Hands to Heaven So Special To Me !
I liked their songs in the late 80s and brings back very special memories. Love his voice and instrumentals -- what a treasure! When "Hands to Heaven" was out, I was in the process of moving back to Pennsylvania from the Washington DC area leaving my boyfriend behind (moved to return to college full-time). Years later it continues to be very touching & heartfelt.
I just received their CD "Best of Breathe" from Amazon.com. Love It!
