Lakeman grew up in a musical family and formed a folk band with his brothers Sean and Sam Lakeman. The trio released the album Three Piece Suite in 1994 before touring Portugal with the Yorkshire based singles Kathryn Roberts and Kate Rusby.

Finding that the pair worked well with the brothers, the five musicians formed a group called Equation and quickly signed to Time Warner. The bands career lasted from 1995 until 2001 and saw them produce three albums; Return to Me (1996), Hazy Daze (1998) and The Lucky Few (2000). Seth also worked on his brother’s solo album which won two awards at the 2002 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.

Seth struck out as a solo artist in 2002 with the release of the first of many excellent albums titled The Punch Bowl. Other standout records include the 2005 release Kitty Jay which saw the singer received a Mercury Music Prize nomination and the 2006 album Freedom Fields which featured the singles The White Hare and Lady Of The Sea and went gold. 2014 saw the release of his amazing Word Of Mouth album. Recorded in a church in East Cornwall, the songs tell the everyday real life stories of the folk from the region. The stories resonate especially well due to Seth being a local lad himself. The record won Best Album in the 2014 BBC Radio 2 Folk Awards.
