Greatest Lakes

Greatest Lakes is an indie band from Milwaukee, Wisconsin that was formed in 2010 with Jon Nichols on drums, Brian Steinseifer on guitar and Mike Hawes on bass. The members would share vocal duties and, through the course of the next four years, developed their sound characterized by big vocals, lots of percussion and lots of guitar; rock and pop music with folk and experimental undertones. Greatest Lakes released their debut LP, Greatest Lakes in September of 2014 while playing occasional shows with regional and national acts. In May of 2018, Greatest Lakes released their sophomore LP, Divisions. "Once again there are echoes of some of the most purely pleasurable indie-rock bands of the last decade— Fleet Foxes, Band of Horses, Grizzly Bear, My Morning Jacket—but as always Greatest Lakes’ music has a sense of uplift that’s all its own. And this time around, the group’s songs are showier and punchier, with bigger buildups and bigger payoffs, although those flashier dynamics never come at the expense of the serene spirit that made their debut such a welcome retreat." -- Shepherd Express

Greatest Lakes is: Jon Nichols (vocals, percussion), Brian Steinseifer (vocals, guitar), Mike Hawes (vocals, bass), Dan Strash (vocals, guitar), Tim Feret (drums).
