Featuring a blend of acoustic instruments, rural soundscapes, and wistful vocals, Great Lake Swimmersare a critically acclaimed indie-folk group led by songwriter/vocalist Tony Dekker with a revolving backing band. Based in Toronto, Ontario, the group emerged with a succession of heavily atmospheric albums recorded in old silos and rural country churches. The music has developed that pastoral warmth over subsequent albums through a continued vision to record and perform in acoustically unique and historical locales. They are renowned for their homespun folk and lush, intimate Americana in their live shows.
Great Lake Swimmers celebrated their 15th anniversary in 2018 with the release of “The Waves, The Wake,” which displayed both their pop-oriented side as well as a new direction utilizing instruments like marimba, harp, lute, and woodwinds and adopted a more orchestral and improvisational approach to modern folk music. They have been shortlisted for the prestigious Polaris Music Prizeand nominated twice for Canada’s Juno Awards, with the CBC calling them “a national treasure.”
Their latest offering is 2021’s double LP, “Live At The Redeemer,” an archival live performance recorded at Toronto’s Church of the Redeemer.
