Synopsis

Product Description
Great Lakes formed in Athens, Georgia in 1996. Founded
around the songwriting partnership of Ben Crum and
lyricist Dan Donahue with multi-instrumentalist Jamey
Huggins, they released an eponymous debut in 2000.
Over time, Huggins switched his focus to other projects,
and Crum and Donahue relocated to Brooklyn, releasing
The Distance Between in 2002 and Diamond Times in
2006. In 2009, Donahue moved back to Athens, leaving
Crum to carry on in New York.
2010 s Ways of Escape is the first Great Lakes record to
feature Crum as the primary songwriter. With its frank
and personal folk- and country-influenced songs, the
record has a bare emotional style that s far from the
innocent optimism and lighthearted psychedelia of the
band s early records.
