“The multi-artist Ian Lake, reveals a part of his character in this new single. Gentle melodies from piano and cello are used as a minimal background for the sentimental lyrical part. Words expressing thoughts which come straight from the heart, revealing an interesting story of love.”

Songwriter and actor Ian Lake uses his musical gift to connect people through the unifying bond of our shared human experience. Powerful, textured vocals and brutally honest lyrics, and soulful melodies, give Lake’s songwriting immediate impact, and leave a lasting impression.

“Fishing for Promises,” his third offering from this record, is a piano and cello ballad, about feeling misunderstood, and the imagined conversations that come out of it. It is easily his most raw and vulnerable song to date.

“The song is about unrequited love, and feeling misunderstood,” said Ian. “It’s an imagined conversation that will never take place. What would I say if I actually got the chance to explain myself to the person who’s been occupying my mind? The song is equal parts clinging to hope, and calmly accepting whatever comes.”

The upcoming debut album What It Is (out April 22nd) finds Ian Lake on a journey from fragile vulnerability to courage and resolve.
