Artist

Adam Lakes is a singer, songwriter, and independent recording artist based in Brooklyn, New York. He began writing and recording original music while studying at the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics. Since then, he has produced a colorful, wide-ranging, and mostly unreleased collection of home recordings, demonstration tapes, live tracks, and studio albums. Lakes is an artist of revision. He might also be considered a minimalist. His latest work is informed by the home recordings of Daniel Johnston, the writings of David Byrne, the experimental and ambient recordings of Bryan Eno, and the innovative studio work of the Beatles. In recent years, he has begun work on a series of loosely narrative, interrelated album projects, which he has described as his ‘audio-biography.’ Lakes writes, records, and performs with a small group of friends and musical collaborators in New York City.
