Vocalist Steve Sulikowski and bassist Eric Houlihan met while they were each making waves in the Amherst, CA, music scene. After moving to L.A. together to perform as a duo, they met drummer Chad Norris and guitarist Jonathan Berry. Norris, whose dad was in the service, had grown up performing in numerous bands while relocating between Naval bases. Meanwhile, Berry had moved from his hometown of Evanston, IL, to L.A. to pursue a music career while continuing his education. Once assembled, Dropline quickly built a loyal following and landed a residency in Hollywood's club district. A few months later, they were invited to perform at a handful of label showcases in L.A. and New York. After being personally courted by writer/producer David Foster (Neil Diamond, Celine Dion, Whitney Houston), the band signed with his 143 Records imprint and flew to Memphis to record at Ardent Studios. With producer Paul Ebersold (3 Doors Down, Sister Hazel, Spacehog) at the helm, Dropline's introspective and revealing lyrics were paired with stunning pop/rock songwriting and production for their 2002 debut You Are Here. ~ Don Kline, Rovi
