From Indian Lakes is the project of California-based singer/songwriter Joey Vannucchi. Growing up on 40 acres of land near Yosemite National Park, the multi-instrumentalist first gravitated toward drums, playing in various bands throughout his youth before eventually focusing on guitar and songwriting.
Intricate rhythms continued to be a major feature of his thoughtful post-rock sound and at age 20, he began recording songs at a friend's studio in the neighboring town of Indian Lakes. Initially releasing the material under the name Songs from Indian Lakes, Vannucchi shortened it after recruiting a group of musicians to begin playing live. They released their debut LP, The Man with Wooden Legs, in 2009. A mix of full-band touring and living-room solo tours for Vannucchi's 2011 Acoustic EP followed as their music continued to evolve, blending bits of warm, thoughtful indie rock and clever, angular post-rock. Their 2012 independent release, Able Bodies, was a bit of a commercial breakthrough earning accolades from Google Play, which listed them as one of the top unsigned bands for that year. In 2013 they signed a deal with Triple Crown Records, who released the band's third LP, 2014's Absent Sounds. With Absent Sounds, Vannucchi's music found more widespread exposure, charting in Billboard's Top 200 and helping build anticipation for new material. In October of 2016, From Indian Lakes delivered their Triple Crown follow-up, Everything Feels Better Now. ~ Timothy Monger, Rovi
