Lakes of Canada began in Montreal in the summer of 2010 when best-friends Jake Smith and Conor O’Neil began performing Jake’s songs as a duo. The duo soon added the dynamic Chris Barillaro to their group, adding his voice and piano playing to their already expanding sound, as well as guitar-expert Tim Dobby. Described as “a cross between Fleet Foxes and Simon and Garfunkel” (Ottawa Sun), Lakes employs lyrically driven songs rich with vocal harmonies.Fresh out of Foxhole Studios, where the band recorded their debut full-length album set to launch in May 2012 and produced by Christopher Fox of Montreal-based Folly & the Hunter, Lakes of Canada is gearing up for their second major tour in as many years. Having added a fifth member, cellist Quinn Brander, to their ranks since their Summer 2010 tour, Lakes have changed and grown significantly since the release of their EP Broken Mirrors (Spring 2010) and are excited and encouraged by all the positive feedback. Lakes of Canada independently raised over $10,000 in order to fund their debut album and are currently gearing up for a cross Canada tour in the summer of 2012.

“While the group hasn’t been together long, they’ve honed a fresh, dreamy folk sound on their latest recording, working in just enough pop to give their live performance a kick”
Folk / Rock
Inlet Sound is the musical convergence of passionate folk-rock spirit and atmospheric pop form. The band has spent the greater part of 2012 tirelessly crafting The Romantics, their first full-length record, in lofty cabins and expansive churches with the help of acclaimed Canadian producer Laurence Currie (Sloan, Wintersleep, Holy Fuck, Hey Rosetta!). Having released the album on October 16, 2012, Inlet Sound’s Michael Wexler (vocals/guitar), Sean Hardy (keys), Steven Gore (mandolin/violin), Curtis Murphy (bass) and Kate MacLean (drums) are riding the high from the realization of a dream project that has been in the works for two years.
