[LOOK][FUTURE STARS] The Lake Poets “City By The Sea”

Biography from HERE

The Lake Poets is one man from Sunderland called Martin who enjoys shouting at the telly whilst watching Question Time with a cup of tea, whilst simultaneously reading #bbcqt on Twitter.

Martin also makes Indie/Folk/Acoustic music. Despite only forming in April 2010, The Lake Poets has seen Martin already share the stage with some of the cream of the U.K and U.S. Indie/Folk/Acoustic scene including Willy Mason, Get Cape, Wear Cape, Fly, Ben Howard, Withered Hand, & Cattle & Cane as well as Indie acts such as The Futureheads and Hyde & Beast.

By combining heartfelt & haunting lyrics with an astonishing voice The Lake Poets have quickly amassed a legion of fans in a short space of time around the North East region, as well as further a field.
Having played a number of prestigious venues across the North East and the UK to stunned silences followed by rapturous applause, a triumphant set to a filled out tent at Sunderland’s flagship music festival ‘Split Festival’ in September 2011 solidified The Lake Poets’ position as an act to watch closely in the Indie/Folk genre.
The music of the Lake Poets has been described as “stunningly affecting & haunting, regularly bringing members of silent audiences to tears with its combination of delicate finger-picked guitar & beautiful melodies tinged with moving & thought-provoking lyricism” as well as “honest  & beautiful, with the power to have you dancing & weeping to the same note”.
With a UK wide tour which included dates at the London, Liverpool & Glasgow O2 Academies as well as performances at Glastonbury, Kendal Calling and Evolution Festival already under his belt Martin seeks to continue the stratospheric rise of The Lake Poets in 2012 with a debut single set for release Spring 2012.
