The Lake Effect has been called unique, honest, and hard to pin down. Pairing unique skill sets, and creativity to create music that manipulates emotions, mood and energy. The Lake Effects songs range from heavy guitar driven blues, to soft, lyrical songs. Founded after a failed attempt as a cover band, The Lake Effect started writing, and recorded their first LP in July 2012, set to release in Mid September, 2012. With a passion for their city, and an unending drive to write anything that sounds good, The Lake Effect wows audiences with music, and performances that are far past their years.
We try to make a typical set, as well as our recordings showcase our wide array of influences and musical interests. Songs range from the auto-biographical Old Mans World with its blues-rock music, and classic blues lyrics, to In The Morning with singer-songwriter sentimentality and electric guitar driven music. Melodic bass lines and pounding drums take over in songs like Man On The Corner. Our influences vary widely, but we typically cite Led Zeppelin, The Black Keys, and Sean Hayes as our main influences. These are all apparent in our songs, as many of our songs are very blues-rock driven, and have sentimental and thoughtful lyrics. Sean Hayes, with his unique voice has an obviously influenced Herberts unmistakeable singing style.
The Lake Effect consists of only three members, Jeff Meyer, Ian P. Herbert, and Patrick Sexton, but the sound is far from threadbare. As multi-instrumentalists, The Lake Effect uses their skills on several different instruments to change tone, and fill out the sound of each song. While the instrumentation of the band changes consistently throughout a set, so does the visual dynamic of the band. Constant changes keep an audience looking at a different band several times.
