LAKE OF DREAMS ARE KARINA SHER & JIMI MITCHELL

BIOGRAPHY

Dreams can encompass a variety of moods and therefore LAKE OF DREAMS an acoustic doom fantasy project captures those moods to bring you energy through music to flow through the realms of darkness, romance, healing and beauty".

THE BIRTH OF LAKE OF DREAMS

Initially a solo project with the first self titled EP. Lake of Dreams was started by Karina Sher from the band Mindlapse but wanted to do a project which involved concept albums, books and films. Inspired by Tolkien, Karina wanted to create a project which was a dark romantic fantasy project. Richard Chappell was in the band for a year or so and performed with Karina Sher at Ragefest 2019 in Nottingham, UK but in December 2020, Jimi Mitchell has been confirmed as the new guitarist for Lake Of Dreams and the band are already working on the new album and co-writing the album.

HISTORY

Karina Sher has been writing music and performing since 1994 originating from band Neutral Shade and from 1996 the band Mindlapse where Karina was secured a contract with HTT Records. In 2015 after she decided to put Mindlapse on a hiatus, Karina decided to embark on a personal project to work on acoustic material which has elements of a gothic, doom, dark folk and progressive nature influenced from bands such as The Gathering, Southern Isolation, Trees Of Eternity, Lacuna Coil, Opeth (Damnation Album), My Dying Bride, Faun, Dead Can Dance, The Moon & The Nightspirit, Hammock, Anathema, Antimatter and a lot of movie soundtracks, films, poetry and ideas to embark on composition.

CONCEPT PROJECT

"The theme is about an ancient druid witch that uses her magic to heal a high rank soldier of war who's role it is to kill witches and druids. They had forbidden love where they both kept leaving each other because they both would be killed if anyone found out as the druids hated the authorities and the authorities hated witches/druids and would drown them. However they risked losing everything to be together and when together they were happy, when apart miserable but the solider risked losing his life as did she. The love was questioned as he kept trying to leave her but the connection was too strong. In the end they had to make a decision. The first EP is the first chapter in this story. Will they make it?"

“Radio Interview: Interview with Karina Sher by William Price Lake Of Dreams Track "The Day After" Aired On: Fist Full Of Metal 5/5 Rating”

William Price - - Interviewer - Fist Full Of Metal

"Lake Of Dreams, an epic masterpiece of acoustic writing coupled with mood, atmosphere, ambiance, a romantic-esque style with an underlying passion of light and dark emotion. Take all this and wrap up in a blanket of symbolism which exposes a heartfelt and truly imaginative debut EP. Those of you who enjoy the works of Dead Can Dance, Anathema, Opeth, The Gathering, can clearly see the intelligence behind the writing but what makes it, is the truly unique voice captured through dynamic by the talented vocalist Karina Sher. Songs are well structured and an EP for those who love to bask in atmospheric and melodic progressive music that challenges each emotion well. Truly excellent and a must have for any genuine music fan of this kind of gothic, acoustic, progressive and ambient nature." (9/10)
