Born from the brotherhood of Gregory George Moore, Jeffrey James Murphy, and Bjorn DelaCruz, is the impassioned trio called Lonesome Lake. Like their band's namesake, home is the rugged state of New Hampshire, where they have honed a unique sound that has been described as gritty and heartfelt. Each member has brought to the group a depth of musical influence and experience that informs their compositions. Gregory plays acoustic guitar, sings, and writes eloquent and often heart wrenching chronicles of life, love and loss. Jeffrey drives the songs by adeptly laying down rich and moving upright bass lines and sings harmony vocals. Bjorn brings it all together with his virtuoso violin playing that weaves in and out of the songs with beauty and intensity. Collectively, they create the resonant, melodic, sometimes dissonant, and stirring auditory experience that is Lonesome Lake. Their emotionally charged debut album, “A Change of Heart, A Change of Season” is now available for purchase online at itunes and other major download sites, as well as at the shows for a handmade copy.

The result is a sound that is both elegant and homey. Think of a rootsy version of the Arcade Fire... Lonesome Lake seem to have struck upon a recipe that has a lot of potential. You may wish to strongly consider getting in on the ground floor."-Peter Kearns

Lonesome Lake, a trio of mismatched looking characters did what they do best: that is, make good music, a blend of old-time Americana and the newer Indie sound. The low throb of Jeff Murphy's standup bass permeated the air, high in the mix, as he sang backup vocals and thumped away with the casual effort of a true professional. Bjorn Delacruz inevitably draws eyes as he draws his bow; his notes at first as undetected as the arrival of a garden snake later pierce the heart like cobra poison. In the center was G.G. Moore, somehow looking both the toughest and the most sensitive of the trio. Something in his posture lends to the image that this is a tormented man, but mostly it his lyrics that lead us to conclude Moore is at the center of an existential crisis.

T..."The 10 o'clock band, New Hampshire's Lonesome Lake, will only add to that appreciative catatonia. Their tracks go further down the indie-folk eerie trail and even throw a longing violin, yearning vocals and heart-rendering lyrics into the mix.
Fittingly, they fit exactly my romantic picture of a Robert Frost-ian, rural, snow-engulfed, bleak Granite State winter and not my actual image of a state caught in ugly urban sprawl."
