Grand Lake was a collaboration between Caleb Nichols and Jameson Swanagon. From 2008 to 2011 the band featured a revolving lineup of friends supporting the songwriting of Nichols.

The band released three EPs and one full length album. They opened for notable bands such as Rogue Wave, Thao with the Get Down Stay Down, Yuck, Smith Westerns, the Thermals. In 2010 they opened for Ok Go at the Historic Fillmore in San Francisco.

Grand Lake's LP 'Blood Sea Dream' (HAD Records) charted in the top 200 on CMJ and garnered mixed reviews from numerous and sometimes snotty music blogs.

The band toured the United States in the fall of 2010. The tour was cancelled after two weeks due to financial difficulties and poor ticket sales.

After the release of 2011's 'Leaves Ellipse' the band went on indefinite hiatus.

Members of Grand Lake are currently pursuing other projects; Swanagon performs in Zach Rogue's Release the Sunbird project and releases and performs music for solo guitar. Caleb Nichols formed a new group called Churches with Rogue Wave drummer Pat Spurgeon. Drummer John Pomeroy performs infrequently as 'The Cerfs'.
