Biography

Memphis, TN-based rock quartet Breaking Point included Brett Erickson (vocals/guitar), Justin Rimer (guitar), Jody Abbott (drums), and Greg Edmondson (bass). The group came together when Rimer was working at a music store and discovered he had quite a bit in common musically with a customer, Erickson, who had come to purchase a P.A. system. The rest of the band soon fell into place while Rimer took a job at the renowned Memphis recording studio Ardent, where he worked on sessions for 3 Doors Down and Train. After studio execs heard demos of Breaking Point via Rimer, they offered the group a "spec" deal that became the eight-song demo recorded between late 1999 and August 2000. Local radio station WMFS began playing tracks from the group, resulting in the song "27" becoming the most-requested track at the station and climbing to number one on the play list. Shortly thereafter, Wind Up signed the group, issuing their Creed-esque debut, Coming of Age, in September of 2001. Breaking Point disappeared for awhile then, but resurfaced in spring 2005 with the Wind Up release of their sophomore effort Beautiful Disorder. By this point drummer Aaron "Zeke" Dauner had replaced Abbott. ~ Greg Prato
