1. Dear was founded in 1999 by Laust Sonne and was originally intended as a solo-project. The first Dear-album Nice Noizy Toys (MNW, Feb. 2001) Was therefore solely a product of Laust Sonne’s imagination.
For the Follow-up live tour Laust handpicked a string of his favorite musicans and together they toured intensely te following year and a half (Including the three major Danish Festivals: Roskilde festival, Midtfyns Festival and Skanderborg Festival)
With the follow-up Billy B (Billy B. Records / Playground, Nov. 2003) Dear takes the band-vibe all the way. There are quite a few 1st takes on the album and the production breathes with life and strong urge to rock.
Billy B is co-produced by Superheroes- and PRIVATE leadsinger Thomas Troelsen in his own Delta Lab Studio. It was recorded and mixed in 3 ½ weeks.
Live Dear consists of the following members:
Laust Sonne: Lead vocal, guitar
Kåre Joensen: Bass, backing vocal
Louise Preisler, Keyboards, backing vocal
Jesper Elnegaard: Drums
Oliver Hoiness: Guitar
