The UK band Breathe formed in the early 1980's and was originally known as Catch 22. All original members of Catch 22 were childhood friends who had attended school together in Hampshire. Breathe was a jazz band with a pop sound, and was some times compared to Air Supply or Rick Astley. By 1984, the band had begun working on a demo that eventually made its way to A&M Records where a contract soon followed.
In 1988, Breathe released All that Jazz, which was by far the most successful release to date. You may remember the songs "How Can I Fall" and "Hands to Heaven" from this release. "How Can I Fall" charted at no. 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, and "Hands to Heaven" charted at no. 2. These songs also did well overseas, especially in the United Kingdom.
In 1990, Breathe followed up their debut by releasing Peace of Mind. Although songs from this release did receive some airplay by local radio stations, their label did not promote the album. It was not long after this 1990 release that Breathe disbanded. There has been little heard from members of the band since 1990. At the time of this writing, the Breathe Discography was as follows:
- 1988: All That Jazz
- 1990: Peace of Mind
