The Lake Poets + Eryn Rae
The Lake Poets is Martin Longstaff, a multi-instrumentalist and songwriter from Sunderland.
Inspired by artists such as John Martyn, Wilco, Damien Rice, Bright Eyes, and Neil Young, Martin’s output as The Lake Poets is as haunting as it is beautiful. 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.
“For decades the sound of the acoustic guitar has pulled at the heartstrings of so many. Now Longstaff is carrying on that tradition with his beautiful, thought provoking, honest acoustic music. When I first heard The Lake Poets I was blown away” – The Guardian
“Beautiful songs, an act to watch” – BBC Radio 1
“Beautiful and quietly devastating – Stunningly heart-breaking music” – BBC 6 Music
