Recorded at his home in Huntsville, Ontario, on the shore of its namesake
lake, Bittern Lake represents Stroud’s favorite way of making music: “live off the floor, no overdubs, everybody in one room, all at one time. The musicians I bring along, they just fall in love with the process.” Those musicians on Bittern Lake include members of Stroud’s longtime backing band, the Campfire Kings, as well as singer-songwriters Oh Susanna and Justin Rutledge, ace session drummer Tony Braunagel (Bonnie Raitt, Taj Mahal) and Cuban-Canadian guitar wizard Elmer Ferrer.

“I’m presenting a message, a lyrical content and a sound that is a blend of all I have had infused within me over my lifetime. Its folk, blues, rock, progressive, pop, its whatever label you like to put on it.”
– Les Stroud

On his fifth full-length album, Bittern Lake, the Canadian singer-songwriter issues an urgent call for environmental preservation with a collection of powerful original songs and classic covers, produced by the legendary Mike Clink (Guns ’N Roses, Beth Hart, Metallica).
