Great Lake Swimmers

Featuring a blend of acoustic instruments, rural soundscapes, and wistful vocals, Great Lake Swimmers are an indie folk group led by songwriter/vocalist Tony Dekker. The group first appeared in 2003 with a haunting, self-titled debut that was recorded in a grain silo and released by Weewerk Records, a small label based in the band's native Toronto. Misra Records picked up the record and released it stateside in April 2005. Recording sessions for Great Lake Swimmers' second album began that same year, with the band taking up residence in an old church in rural southern Ontario. The finished product, Bodies and Minds, was released toward the end of 2006, featuring another blend of homespun folk and lush, intimate Americana.

Although already popular in Canada, the band began building a wider audience in 2007 by signing to a new label, Nettwerk, and releasing the well-received Ongiara. The album's first track, "Your Rocky Spine," topped the Canadian indie charts and appeared on the soundtrack to Showtime's Weeds. Such increased attention kept Great Lake Swimmers on tour for the better part of two years, but they still managed to take some time off to record a fourth album. Traveling between multiple locations in the Thousand Islands region and elsewhere in northern New York state, the group hit a creative high peak with Lost Channels, which was released in 2009. The Legion Sessions, an EP featuring live versions of several Lost Channels tunes, also appeared that year. In 2012 Great Lake Swimmers released New Wild Everywhere, their first album to be recorded in a traditional studio. ~ David Serra, Rovi

these guys have a sound that i can't quite pinpoint...s i l v e r y , pensive, and acoustic / mellow but also much more cutting edge and newer sounding that the beaten up, worn out 'singer songerwriter ' genre that doesn't seem to be breaking any new ground. i'd also recom: bon iver, phosphoresce n t , band of horses, fleet foxes, and m.ward for similar sounding (but unique) 'new acoustic' sound. finally...so m e o n e is getting us out of the dull hole of acoustic boredom.

DITTO!
Saw them live recently, amazing concert.
Yeah, this "Man With No Skin" tune either mellows me out or freaks me out...I'm not sure which.

Really a great song.
