The opening song “Better Times Will Come” by Janis Ian, immediately sets a positive, uplifting tone. Written at the advent of covid, Ian was connected with Lake via WBA Records in Nashville. Lake puts his own upbeat spin on the track, ornamenting it with fiddle, banjo, mandolin & upright bass. It quickly became a fan fav on Ian’s own site garnering 3k views on Lake’s YouTube channel.
The tune serves in contrast to Lake’s own material including the title track which speaks to themes of isolation, fatalism, and environmentalism.
Coming out of the gate this summer, Lake has been selected by Reverbnation as one of NYC’s Most Popular Upcoming Artists. Jeff Lake already has over 12,500 monthly listeners on Spotify via the “Penny Lane” release with Cellophane Flowers. The new album, “Field of Grass” will be released in digital and physical outlets worldwide.
