Fog Lake Joins The Ground Control Touring Artist Roster

Fog Lake Joins The Ground Control Touring Artist Roster

Posted 06/20/2018

Ground Control Touring is excited to welcome Fog Lake to our roster of performing artists.

Aaron Powell, better known by his lo-fi singer-songwriter moniker Fog Lake, creates music that’s been best described as “a complex collage of nebulous angst and heartfelt nostalgia.” Born and raised on the island province of Newfoundland, Canada in the small rural town of Glovertown (populated by only about 2000 people), Powell began recording drone music in his high school years before moving onto to more pop-oriented structures later in college, releasing his first album Farther Reaches in January of 2013 and Virgo Indigo in Feburary of 2014, the latter released by Brooklyn-based label Orchid Tapes.

While seldom playing live or touring, Fog Lake grew a passionate following online and Powell began collaborating with other musicians to bring the project into a live band setting, touring the east coast of Canada multiple times, while prolifically releasing records such as Victoria Park in 2015 and Dragonchaser in 2017. Since then he has toured with such acts as Foxing, Helena Deland and Hovvdy.

Today, Powell lives in Montreal, Quebec writing, recording and playing with his active band (consisting of David Mitchell, Micah Brown, Greg Sweetapple and Kenney Purchase). His new full length release entitled Captain will be released on July 5th, 2018 via Montreal-based cassette label Stack Your Roster and on vinyl via UK based label Dog Knights Records.
