Welcome to the Fat Tire Tour de Fat, a 33 city tour of beer, bikes, and bemusement. Costume up and party down with high-flying acts focusing on fun, music, dance and the American craft beer icon, Fat Tire. Did we mention that a portion of all proceeds go straight to local nonprofits? (They do. In fact we raised 4.5 million dollars to date). Grab your tickets and start planning for New Orleans Tour de Fat on June 11th. We’re bringing the party with Corey Harper and Colin Lake. Costumes are highly encouraged (and a mindset to party is mandatory). More info here.
Lake's latest album, One Thing That's For Sure, captures the songwriter’s unique musical vision, delivering penetrating lyrics with soul and gritty sincerity. On the album’s eleven original songs, Lake sings of love and longing, truth and transcendence, hope and struggle. These are love songs, but not just in the romantic sense -- these are songs that celebrate love’s well earned triumph over fear and tread the territory where light and shadows meet.
On songs like “I’m Trying to Tell You” and the heavily distorted “Pay the Price”, Lake sings in desperate pleas, reminiscent of a man fighting for his life, while in the chorus of the laid back title track and the sun-soaked refrain of “She’s Mine”, the singer swells with joy as he revels in the spoils of love. And why shouldn’t he; these songs were born in New Orleans -- the world capital of revelry & joyful expression. And while Lake may not have been born there, you could say that in New Orleans he was born again.
In recent years, Lake has opened for acts like Dr. John and Gary Clark Jr, and performed at festivals around the country, including the New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival, the Austin City Limits Music Festival, Alabama’s Hangout Beach, Music and Arts Festival, the Key West Songwriters Festival, Telluride Blues & Brews Festival and New Orleans’ French Quarter Festival.
