Lake Lady
Prior to the birth of Lake Lady, Sowells had been writing and performing songs for over a decade, making her mark in the music industry with a variety of acts. Some of the highlights from her extensive experience include touring nationally as Grayson Wray Project's lead vocalist and synth player (2011), performing at the Art Outside festival with Notsolow (2012), playing the House of Blues Voodoo Lounge in Freak Encounter (2010) and even playing abroad in France for the Fete de la Musique (World Music Day) with her groove-pop duo Lake Lady and the Mountain Man (2013). She has collaborated with a myriad of electronic producers including Ado Mass, DJ Lee Kalt, Ghost Youth, Quando, and Lawrence Widarto (Electronic Groove). As a backing vocalist for Omarr Awake, she had the pleasure of performing on the Fox Morning Show in Austin.
A multi-faceted talent, Sowells also has a hugely accomplished background including film, television and event planning. She has worked for Nickelodeon, Channel Thirteen WNET, and several documentaries including Brick City (HBO/ Sundance). She was a Managing Director at The Little Theater in Santa Monica and an Assistant Director for several shows during her years in LA while working as a Production Assistant and Transcriber on countless reality shows. Sowells later joined The Deli Magazine's Austin branch as an Editor and Event Planner after having freelanced as a writer for nearly a decade. In that role, she partnered with the Good Music Club and KUTX's Laurie Gallardo to stage Get Schooled!, the biggest lineup of her 4 part showcase series featuring the best up-and-coming music acts in the area.
Sowells has been featured on several influential radio stations including Women of Substance and Music City Radio - who say she’s “establishing Oakland as an important cultural hub for Bay Area music." She was also featured on NPR Music's Facebook page and called an "amazing unsigned act." In addition to playing shows and promoting her EP, she is currently producing music videos, running her production company, Unabashed Productions, and building a collective of musicians and filmmakers via her Facebook group Bay Area Music Video Collaborators. Stay tuned for more song and music video releases coming soon.

About the EP: A worldly musical soul at heart, Oakland-based Charise Sowells - under the moniker of Lake Lady - is combining styles past and present to create a refreshingly modern new sound that holds your attention from start to finish. Her influences for this debut EP, Better Day, range from the chilled-out trip hop of Massive Attack and Portishead to the blues stylings of Billie Holiday. Co-produced with Midnite Tiger, Better Day was released on March 25th, 2016. At times haunting and always bursting with soul, these five songs showcase Sowells paying loving tribute to her influences while crafting a sound that is entirely her own.
