Dear You formed in 2009 because “we decided we had enough of trying to emulate our favorite bands,” says vocalist Chris Roach. “We wanted to do something we felt had [the attention of] our whole heart.” Working with Kevin Gates (Never Shout Never, the Ready Set) gave the Beaumont, Texas, pop-rock quartet the professional sound and guidance they were looking for; a guest spot by Dangerous Summer vocalist AJ Perdomo on their most recent single, “The Way That You Left Me,” also didn’t hurt. “2012 is going to be a year we make strides,” Roach says.
