Blending soaring bagpipes, reeling Celtic fiddles, & tribal didgeridoo with modern rock guitars, bass, and drums, Needfire takes traditional Celtic melodies into a modern rock context with original lyrics and hard-hitting performances. Since 2005 these Texas-based Celt-rockers have headlined some the nation’s largest Celtic and arts festivals. Songs from their first three CD releases have been aired on radio stations and Celtic music programs throughout the U.S. and Europe. In 2009 Needfire will be on tour in support of their 4th and newest CD “Chasing Orion” performing at festivals coast to coast. On “Chasing Orion” the band once again takes all engineering, producing, and creative decisions into their own hands. Killer songwriting, great guitar work, a rock n’ roll back-beat, catchy fiddle and bagpipe hooks and a mix of eclectic influences draw equally from rock, folk, Texas blues, and traditional Celtic music. This CD has all the elements that continue to affirm Needfire as one of America’s most distinctive and original bands.
Needfire''s high-spirited, powerhouse live shows and original sound are praised by music fans of all ages and critics worldwide. "One of today''s most popular Celtic rock bands" (WBKO TV- Bowling Green, KY); "...furious toe-tappers that owe as much to the Beatles as to Celtic music" (Ink 19); "...just at ease in the rock songs as in the ballads, Needfire is fresh and explosive!" (Highlands Magazine, France); "...uplifting, invigorating" (Shotgun Reviews).
