Josh Lake is a multi-instrumentalist, composer and producer based in Halifax, Nova Scotia. In 2013 he started a label and studio, Profondo Recorders where he composes, produces and distributes his records.
He grew up on a variety of music genres from Country/Western to Gospel, but his favourites soon became apparent: Hip Hop, Blues, Funk, Soul and Rock.
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 many great funk and soul artists, that he had to go back and find who the original artists were and get those records...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 the Halifax Jazz Festival, Nova Scotia Music Week, East Coast Music Week, Halifax Ribfest and numerous other live events throughout Nova Scotia and Atlantic Canada.
