Nolton Lake is a self-taught acoustic musician based in Montreal playing a mix of folk/world music. From his travels, he brings home different sounds and instruments to create music as a voyage captured in each song. From heart-felt sung acoustic songs to groovier world tunes, from the acoustic guitar to the Indian sitar, Nolton Lake mixes things up in way unheard of before, creating a vibe of faraway utopia within a calm feeling of finally being home.

Lake's third EP Dark Blue was released earlier this year. Born during winter, in the large Gésu church hall in Montréal, it is a live recording with the generous participation of amazing musicians on the cello, the bass, the electric guitar, and drums/percussions. The EP bleeds truth, resonates with authenticity, and celebrates nostalgia. It’s a smooth and tender album, on the themes of mystery, childhood, love, and introverted happiness.
