Peter Lake is a New York City based singer-songwriter who revels in anonymity. With a wide range of musical influences that covers vintage artists like Curtis Mayfield all the way through to modern stalwarts like Billie Eilish and Rüfüs Du Sol, Lake has continued to build an impressive catalog across the genres of rock, pop, indie, and house. His music celebrates a diversity of styles, leveraging many aesthetic components to deliver something fresh and universally appealing.

Latest track "Stones Keep Rolling Through," or simply "Stones," builds a framework of soul-inspired funk around a buttery figure on the electric bass. With a tight hook on the electric grand piano, along with thick layers of vocal harmony, this track delivers an engaging mid tempo dance thump that barely obscures the wound. Lake recalls a deep love connection as well as the void that was left in her absence, finishing with a refreshing note of optimism.

I put my head back
to the sky
lose the stones and say goodbye

When you love someone or something you give it power over you. I personally believe this is a good thing to do. On the one hand, it can create pain. A stoic philosopher like Epictetus would say this is wrong—by giving up your power you are vulnerable to pain. But the stoics also miss the upside of vulnerability. — Peter Lake
