Northern California-based Lakes is lead by vocalist/guitarist Seth Alan Roberts, formerly of Christian indie rock band Watashi Wa, who released a record on Tooth & Nail before breaking up in summer 2004. Roberts had formed a new band called Eager Seas and put out a record through Tooth & Nail, but it was released under the Watashi Wa moniker in early 2006. After parting ways with Tooth & Nail, the new lineup of Roberts, guitarist Jason Massey, and bassist Roger Tompkins signed to The Militia Group and changed the band's name to Lakes. Their debut EP, Photographs, was issued in September 2006, though with Erik Brunner on bass and Jonathan Russo manning drums; the album featured guest vocals by Mike Herrera of MxPx and Aaron Marsh of Copeland. ~ Kenyon Hopkin, Rovi
