"Effervescent, vivacious and all-together engaging" is how smoothjazz.com describes Under The Lake's music, an
original sound that Don Dilorio of the North Jersey Herald and News says "doesn't sit easy in any category, thanks
to its heavy doses of funkified bass and occasional soul references."
Keyboard player Jayson Tipp founded Under The Lake nearly 30 years ago. Over the past three decades Under
The Lake has garnered many notable accomplishments across their first 4 releases: Dive In (1993), Up For Air
(1996), People Together (2007) and Jazz, Groove & Attitude (2018). The band’s credits include live performances
with a "who's who" list of jazz artists such as Joe Sample, Billy Cobham, Keiko Matsui, Stanley Jordan, and others
with appearances at venues such as the PDX Jazz Festival, Cathedral Park Jazz Festival, Maui Music Festival,
Newport Beach Jazz Festival, KIFM Smooth Jazz Festival and the House of Blues.
Under The Lake have received immense critical praise in local, regional, national, and international publications
including JazzTimes, Jazziz, France's Jazz Hot, Canada's Exclaim, Germany's Cascade, as well as The New York
Daily News, UTNE Reader, and The Music Paper
