Fuzzy Wuzzy Was A Bear Who Played Spacey Garagey Folky Melodies


Hungry Lake is a noisy folk/rock band from Toronto. It has been, for the most part, a conceptual project for a number of years until now. Other than the odd showcase, the founding members locked themselves away in their studio to create the band’s debut album, ‘The Overpass’. Their seclusion ended in the fall of 2015 with the release of the record. Forward thinking and excited at the prospect of what lays waiting, Hungry Lake stands at a precipice. The band is set to record a follow up album this February to catch their audience up to speed with their newest ideas and compositions. Onwards and Upwards, folks. Look forward to Hungry Lake performing across Canada and a second record in 2016.


Josef Thomas (lead singer/guitarist), Ryan Webb (guitarist), Taylor MacLean (keyboardist), Josh Park (drummer), Greg Markov (bassist), Vale Abbott (backing singer), Shanti Abbott (backing singer), Rebekah Hawker (backing singer), Josh Correia (sound)


Silver Dollar Concert Review:

“Right from the first chord, it is evident that Hungry Lake is a great live band. They play so well together that it is often difficult to isolate which instrument is making what noise because not only do their instruments play together in perfect harmony, they also throw in countless experimental sounds that make their performances stand out from other folk-rock bands I have seen recently. The stage looks nice and full with all seven people on it ‘ it seems to properly reflect the big sound of Hungry Lake. Speaking of big sound, Joe Thomas can SING. There is no appropriate string of adjectives I can present to properly convey how magnificent his voice is, so please, just go see him live.”

‘The Overpass’ Album Review:

“Sucked me in with the first track. Vocals on “My Love” reminded me of Sparklehorse, but with a melancholic rawness at the fore. The album’s accessible indie-folk tone belies a true hopelessness at the core of these lovely songs.”
– Hannah McCain
