Biography

Baltimore, Maryland (2004 – present)

Dropout Year is an American pop punk band from Baltimore, Maryland, formed in June, 2004. The band consists of lead vocalist Steve Reter and guitarists Adam Goodman and Brandon Reter.

Dropout Year started out in June 2004, when ex-singer Adam Henderson, Brandon Reter, and ex-drummer Justin Childers (playing as a 3-piece originally known as Far From Home) asked Adam Goodman (a high school friend) to join the band after he witnessed them perform a concert at the Recher Theatre in Towson, Maryland. The band, with manager (and future singer) Steve Reter, completed and released two demo CD’s over the next two years. Their first studio EP was titled Seven Unreturned Phone Calls (a quote from the movie “Say Anything”) . The EP was recorded with Paul Leavitt (All Time Low, Over It) and the sold-out CD release party was held at the Recher Theatre on August 4, 2006.

In the summer of 2007, they parted ways with their original drummer Justin. Jordan Young was asked to audition after he sent them a video of him drumming, and was officially chosen a few weeks later. Later that year they won national exposure by being selected as a Taco Bell Feed The Beat winner, along with A Day To Remember, Blameshift, and Mayday Parade. Two months later, they were featured as an AP&R band in the October ‘07 issue of Alternative Press Magazine. From the article: “Everything they touch is currently turning to harmonic gold. They won DJ Rossstar’s first national unsigned band contest and this year’s Comcast On Demand Music Video Contest and were featured as one of the top unsigned bands in the country by TheDailyChorus.com.”
