Stacy Hanson (Red Sky Warning) and Andy Hughes (TUGG) join forces as The Lake Effect and they are quickly becoming one of the Driftless area's "must-see" groups. Part Dispatch, part Jamestown Revival, part dueling one-man band… The Lake Effect (TLE) are completely unique. Built on a bed of great songs, harmonies, and an infectious beat what sets Hanson & Hughes apart from their contemporaries is their effortless chemistry; likely built from a decade-plus friendship and combined, 40 years of touring and performing. You gotta see ‘em to believe ‘em.
In 2021, Hanson and Hughes founded Broken Wrist Records as an entity to promote, book, and collaboratively manage creative endeavors alongside artists they have mutual respect for and would like to pursue creative projects and partnerships.
On September 1, 2022, the band will release its debut recording. A 3-song effort, The Lake Effect 3P. Like the live shows, the recording is built on the unique voice created by the blending harmonies of Hanson & Hughe
