Brief Description
:  Lakeside Landing features storytelling songs, songs about sailing, love; songs in a variety of styles that show versatility and maturity compared with earlier releases.  There is a slight modern maritime theme throughout, with song stylings that float from folk rock to surf rock to unique traditional song arrangements, with varying time signatures and tempos that overall, have quite a relaxing mood about them.

Longer Description:  From contemporary sea shanty to traditional maritime song arrangements to instrumental surf rock to ballads and folk-rock with caribbean/calypso/mento/ska/reggae flavors, Lakeside Landing represents Great Lakes-oriented acoustic rock at its best.  Hawaiian lap style slide guitar and marimba complement acoustic guitar and light drums/hand percussion to back warm, emotional vocals in delivering unique tales of love and wanderlust that will leave you yearning to get back out on the water soon.

Even Longer Description:  Lakeside Landing features storytelling songs about sailing, lakes and love in a variety of styles that show versatility and maturity compared with earlier releases.  The follow-up to Moon Dreams, this album is somewhat of a departure from the more dark and blues-oriented acoustic rock that ventures into the realm of lightness, of summer, of enjoyment of the outdoors as opposed to dreams of outer space.  There is a slight "modern maritime" theme throughout, with styles that float from folk rock to surf rock to caribbean to unique traditional song arrangements, with varying time signatures and tempos that overall, have quite a relaxing mood about them.  This album should make you yearn for getting back out on the water soon.

Personal Anecdotes
This album should make you yearn for getting back out on the water soon.  I think it's cool because it blends so many styles in one album with a common theme and with common instruments.  You'll notice hints of calypso, reggae, sea shanty, surf instrumental rock, Hawaiian, Americana, folk, ballads, traditional, mento, ska, and rock - all from a midwestern, great lakes perspective.  The variety and carefully selected song order holds your attention while overall, you get in a certain happy mood with positive feelings and thoughts of lakes, water, boating, summer, beaches, and love.  It might remind you of fond memories of relaxation or make you want to go on a vacation.
