British songwriter/producer Joe Moore began the Yearning in 2012, modeling his orchestral pop songs after the teenage tragedies and melodramatic heartbreak of early girl groups and '60s chamber pop. Moore enlisted lead vocalist Maddie Dobie to bring his songs to life and crafted his nostalgic studio compositions in the style of Burt Bacharach and the Beach Boys. Enlisting a host of session musicians, they released a handful of EPs before expanding to full-length albums beginning with 2014's Dreamboats & Lemonade. ~ Fred Thomas
