Josh Lake is a musician, producer and recording engineer based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. In 2013 he started a label and studio, Lakehouse Record Co. where composes, performs, produces and distributes his own records.
He grew up loving heavy Funk, though he didn't know it until his late teens.
Listening to golden age of Hip Hop records when he was still in single digits (Big Daddy Kane, Pete Rock & C.L Smooth, Young M.C., etc) those records sampled so many funk and soul artists, they were his classroom!
Fast forward to 2021 where to date he's received 2 GMA Canada Covenant Awards (2015 'Seasonal Album of the Year', and 2013 'Instrumental Song of the Year'), and numerous ECMA, Music Nova Scotia and GMA Canada Covenant award nominations.
Along with his funky, tight and veteran live band, in 2016 Josh has had the privilege of playing a monthly residency at renowned music venue The Carleton in Halifax, NS.
Other performance highlights include: Halifax Jazz Festival, Nova Scotia Music Week, East Coast Music Week, Halifax Ribfest, Paul O'Regan Hall at Halifax Central Library, Christmas Tree Lighting events in Sackville, NS for the 8th year consecutively, and numerous other live events throughout Nova Scotia and Atlantic Canada.
"Funk and Soul the way it's supposed to be done: true, gritty and raw!"
