In Early 2009, Lake left Portland, embarking on a one-way tour that would end in New Orleans, Louisiana. Colin arrived late one evening with no place to live and few prospects. It wasn’t long, however, before his powerful voice could be heard regularly at venues throughout the city and over the airwaves of WWOZ fm. Heavily informed by the blues, Lake’s music incorporates elements of soul, rock and folk to create a sound and feel that is strongly original and disarmingly familiar. Shows with his band have become known as high-energy, gospel-infused house-rockers, while Lake’s poignant solo performances can silence audiences of any size. In 2011 Lake recorded and released the album “The Ones I Love”, which was soon named one of the top ten local releases of the year by Keith Spera of the New Orleans Times Picayune. As his reputation for authentic, down-home presentation continues to grow, Lake can be found on a variety of stages performing for captivated audiences and alongside some of the biggest names in New Orleans music.
