It didn't take long to realize that what they were doing was a little more serious than garage demos. The two agreed to take the project on as a more serious endeavor. Soon after the first few tracks were laid and the official myspace page was up; LeClairs' house on D Avenue where it all started, was back up for rent and the boys were looking for a place to write and record.....on the cheap. It was also around this time that they had realized a band was going to be necessary to further their plan, and that they couldn't be studio slaves to really progress further (at least not at the appropriate level). LeClair would be the guitar, Fisher was the guitar and voice; all that was left to accomplish was a reliable rhythm section.

Dye was into it so much that it wasn't long before Fisher and LeClair would set-up shop in Dye's trailer behind his house and were back to cranking out material....constantly, sometimes even 48 hours straight. Fisher, LeClair and Dye all worked together to transform the 12x60 2 bedroom mobile home into a great studio.

Currently, Dearanna remains writing material while rehearsing for tour and shopping to producers and labels. WE ARE DEARANNA. WE ARE DRIVEN.... Read more on Last.fm.
