Our Philosophy

Lake Isabel is the contemporary classical piano project of The Barton Brothers. Jack and Dan Barton are Denver-based performers, songwriters, and composers making the most out of their love for the piano. As classically trained pianists and childhood choir nerds, Jack and Dan grew up sharing stereos, piano teachers, and bunk beds—developing a familiar musical vocabulary from the beginning. Lake Isabel grew out of a desire to reconnect to our classical training, and a passion for composing well-crafted, yet accessible contemporary classical music.
