Norman lake is a project that in a way, has been ten years in the making.  Ten years of songwriting and guitar playing came alive with the purchase of a single 4 track cassette recorder.  Drawing from singer songwriter influences such as Elliott Smith and Conor Oberst, each song is crafted to offer a different kind of cathartic emotional release.  Norman Lake is a project doing its best to get people more in touch with emotions that are easier to bury than face.  At the end of the day the things we run from in our hearts, manifest in unforseen ways.  Sit down, don your headphones, and see what you feel and what you can relate to in these forlorn lo-fi ballads.
