"Defying Dakota"

Sorry, Dakota, but these guys are going strong. Named in defiance of an ex-drummer's girlfriend's lack of faith in the band, Dear Dakota's retribution comes in the form of success and fans. Channel One News got an intimate account of the Gainesville, Florida-based band's exploits over the past year in a funny, five way phone call.
And, what did we discover? Not only does Dear Dakota know how to have a good time, they also know how to collaborate when writing songs for their debut album…
…The song's lyrics, "I can feel the sunrise," not only represent the band's success over the past year, we hope they'll also mark Dear Dakota's fate…

    Wow. I just came back to this page after a couple of years hiatus, and the updated "Hello...Anybody?" is immensely impressive. I've been in love with the acoustic version for so long, but this studio version hits my feels just a bit harder. Beautiful growth, Dear Dakota. Beautiful. Thank you for moving me. Jun 02
