Breathewas formed in London in the early 1980's. They were originally a five member band called Catch 22. The members were friends from the old school days in London where they lived. Later they became just a band of four and in 1984 they consisted of David Glasper (singer), Marcus Lillington (guitarist), Ian “Spike” Spice (drummer), and Michael “Mick” Delahunty (bass guitar). They began working on some demos and introduced them to the personnel of the label Siren Records. That move led to a recording contract with A&M Records. All That jazz was their first album and was released in 1987. The album contained 2 of their most popular hits. They were, How Can I Fall, and Hands To Heaven. The first one rated on the Billboard Hot 100 at number 3 and the second one rated at number 2 in 1988. They also rated number 4 (Hands to Heaven) in the U. K. Singles Chart, and hands To Heaven also rated inside Billboard’s 1988 Year-end top ten at number 9.
Michael left the group in 1989 and the three who were left continued with All That jazz and Peace of Mind in 1990. Their music was a combination of light jazz, pop, and soul. They were not too much unlike Air Supply or Rick Astley. Their success was short lived because they failed to make the charts with any of their singles from their second album, Peace of Mind. B 1990 they had disbanded because of lack of interest from the record companies so they had noone promoting them. Although there has been nothing from them for a while, David Glasper has returned to singing and has two demos set up on myspace. He plans to have a solo album released in 2008.
