Josh Lake is a musician, producer and recording engineer based in Halifax, Nova Scotia, where in 2013 he started his own studio, "Lakehouse Records" where 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 2017 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.
"Funk and Soul the way it's supposed to be done: true, gritty and raw!"
"If you don’t know about Josh Lake, you should. He’s got an old soul and that’s probably why he plays “soul” music. If you like funk, you should make a point of checking him out in downtown Halifax. What have you got to lose? Get hip." - Mike Campbell (The Carleton, Halifax, NS)
"...saw Josh Lake last night at the ECMA's....WOW!" - Karen Mair (CBC Radio PEI)
"...the man's got HEAT!" - Mike (Top Fan)
