"Lake House" is a fun song that we wrote after spending some time near my home town Wayland, MI last summer.

It's that "leave the world behind, escape to the Lake" mentality that we have in the Midwest. (continue)

It doesn't alienate anyone and doesn't put the band in any certain light. It's not a prog band, not a jazz band. Just a great rock tune. This was our second video single. (read more)
