Lost Lakes - Digital Tears

Lost Lakes is a Madison, WI based collaboration between Corey Mathew Hart and Paul Mitch. The two met during a songwriting competition held by a local radio station. The first time they played together, they clicked musically and on a personal level as well.  Since then their collaboration has developed into a strong songwriting and production team with a focus on well-crafted tunes and tight vocal harmonies.

They produced their new record themselves enlisting drummer/percussionist Shane Leonard (Field Report, The Stray Birds) along with a longtime bandmate, Rusty Lee on keyboards, and pedal steel player Charlie Rose (Elephant Revival, Aoife O'Donovan). The project was recorded over a ten month period in a shared warehouse space called the Dojo. The Dojo is a 3600 square-foot
warehouse filled with eclectic gear from homemade microphones and recording equipment to guitars amps, and drums of all colors, shapes, and sizes. Being fairly porous to the Wisconsin elements, the temperature in the Dojo ranged from 41 degrees to well over 100 over the course of the project, adding a little chaos and adventure to the sessions.

Their self-titled new album, hits the streets March 3, 2017.
