Catch the Sun
Around a campfire in the woods of Northern Michigan is where a group of longtime friends first had the idea for the musical coalition that is now Bear Lake. Having played for years in numerous other bands around the midwest circuit, these friends acquired some free recording time (thanks to a year of studio servitude by Steve Stetson) and decided to lay down tracks for what eventually became their debut album, "Catch the Sun" (though no one would have foreseen it at the time). The album was mixed at Rustbelt Studios in Royal Oak, MI (Electric Six, Kid Rock, The Go, and Sponge) under the guidance of Eric Hoegemeyer and Al Sutton. The tracks for the album were recorded in just two days, but the members knew immediately that this was a band and that it was going to be something worth pursuing. And now, though very much still in it's inception, Bear Lake is ready to begin sharing their quickly-expanding arsenal with the world. New music will emerge here on a fairly regular basis as we continue on this 'Experiment In Songwriting,' and we hope to see you back often! 'Catch the Sun' can be purchased on both I-tunes and CDbaby. Thanks for listening, and we hope you enjoy.
