The 9-piece band known as Great Lakes began as the songwriting outlet for Dan Donahue, Ben Crum, and Jamey Huggins. Once based in Athens, Georgia, the core trio, who still write in the collaborative style they've continued to develop since they wrote their first songs together back in 1996, are now spread out across the country--Dan in San Francisco, Ben in New York, and Jamey still in Athens. The nature of this seperation requires long distance songwriting, and a reunion of sorts when it's time to get together to record or go on tour.

Great Lakes' self-tilted debut was released in 2000 on Kindercore Records and has established them as musicians capable of creating epic soundscapes as well as catchy pop songs. Now their follow-up, The Distance Between, is being released on Orange Twin and shows a further development and a wider array of songwriting styles.

"The threadbare-yet-noble surviving platoon of the Elephant 6 army can spew out a fuzz-laces garage assault hot enough to wilt the magnolia blossoms on your dining room table. But aside from the crystalline Michael Nesmith and Zombies covers, what makes Great Lakes stand tall enough for a battlefield commission is a knack for fusing the Band's post-Civil war melancholy with Spiritualized's feats of ballroom levitation." -Magnet
