Alice Lake was raised in Wisconsin where she spent years finding inspiration and solace amongst the trees. It was after a North woods trip to one place in particular, nicknamed The Glass Lake, where Alice’s vision appeared clear in her head. It is there where she would eventually uncover her true voice.
It wouldn't be until years later though—after experiencing the world through travel and earning a degree in biology—that Alice would return to the lake with a head full of stories and a readiness to manifest them into song under the moniker Alice and the Glass Lake.
Now based in Brooklyn, NY, Alice and the Glass Lake serves as the vehicle for her escapist vision. These melodies, inspired by echoes through the trees, speak of life’s honest reflection in the water while hinting at the surreal. Alice has emerged as a honed artist with a clarity and voice completely unique to herself.
Alice released the Glass Lake’s debut EP titled The Evolution this summer during her set at Bonnaroo Music and Arts Festival. The record, along with a performance-based video for single “Higher,” have been met with crystalline reviews calling her music “otherworldly” and predicting Alice to be “the Cosmic Pop Queen of 2013.”
