The Lake Poets is the music of one man, Martin Longstaff, a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter from Sunderland.
Inspired by artists such as Elvis Perkins, Carole King, Villagers, Feist, Van Morrison, Fionn Regan, John Martyn, Wilco, Damien Rice, Bright Eyes, and Neil Young. Martin makes honest, haunting & moving acoustic/indie-folk music.
Described as ‘Quietly Devastating’, ‘Accomplished and Intelligent’ and ‘Spellbinding and Heart-breaking’, Martin’s music regularly silences audiences and turns heads. Lead single ‘Your Face’ has received over 4 million Spotify plays as well steady daytime airplay on BBC Radio 2, Radio X, and BBC 6 Music.
