Kate e Lake has had an interesting musical journey, one which has taken her from wanting to be Elastica’s frontwoman Justine Frischmann to travelling to Dublin and Paris to study classical piano and then a stint singing jazz standards upon her return to Glasgow. However, it was when she discovered a love for singing folk songs at parties that she decided to strike out as a recording artist in her own right.

Citing influences including Agnes Obel, Nils Frahm, Julia Houlter, Eric Whitacre and Debussy, her quality compositions have a strong cinematic appeal, but could also slot seamlessly into a Celtic Connections bill. She recently self-released her debut EP ROAMS, which saw her working with fellow Royal Conservatoire alumnus Gus Stirrat.
