Kim Joy Lake is a songwriter settled in Avondale, Nova Scotia. Although she has been playing guitar and writing songs for years, she only recently started sharing her music with the world. Her debut album "Flesh and Bone," recorded by Charles Austin at Ocean Floor Studio and engineered by Thomas Stajcer and AJ Boutilier at New Scotland Yard Studio, this album has been a labor of love and collaboration. Featuring performances by Jesse Griffith, Gina Burgess, Tony Wood, Peter Gorman, and Jordan Murphy, and with a special guest performance by Tom Helliwell, "Flesh and Bone" will be released December 4, 2020.
“Hearing a Kim Lake song is like meeting a deer in the woods, when you are in awe of their quiet wildness and vulnerability, and feel fortunate to have been in their world for a few moments.” - Terra Spencer
“For a debut artist to arrive as fully developed and steeped in songs of such staggering quality and commitment, Kim Lake is a rare talent. Prowess at every turn of phrase, nuanced vocal delivery, all carried by her uniquely and beautifully crafted guitar work, her skills set her apart in a class all her own. What an honour it is to be involved in making music of such caliber and joy, an inspiration for all, she reminds the listeners of everything good in a world littered with chaos.” - Jesse Griffith
“There is an exciting musical trend lately, coming from women who are starting to make records with some lived experiences already accumulated; women with kids and careers and interesting stories to share. Kim Lake adds her clear voice, lyrical wisdom and inventive tunes to a strong crew in this province, with a promising first release on the way.” - Kim Barlow
