Tony Decker and Great Lake Swimmers

I met with Tony Decker, the lead singer-songwriter for Great Lake Swimmers at the Twisted Pines Music in Movies festival just prior to his mainstage set. Since 2002 Great Lake Swimmers have produced 4 albums of ethereal atmospheric pop-folk music.

This is a powerful singer! The emotions fligh high within the first seconds of the songs…Excellent conversation, you somehow managed to ask him good questions while I would’ve probably forgot of my show and just asked “keep playing, Tony, keep playing”.
Thanks for bringing this band to my ears, Sean.
