Joey Vannucchi grew up on forty acres of land near Yosemite National Park. Vannucchi spent most of his youth reading books, playing drums, learning new instruments, and exploring the land around his rural home. He received jazz drum lessons and played on a borrowed church drumset for hours daily. Vannucchi said: "I could play my drums for hours. There was no one to bother. No one around cared about the sound."


Throughout high school and into adulthood, Vannucchi participated in various bands. At age 20, he started writing and recording songs at a friend's studio in Indian Lakes Estates, California which he released to Myspace as "Songs From Indian Lakes". This reference was later shortened to the current band name.


After enlisting friends to perform his material, From Indian Lakes began playing local shows and independently released a full-length record, The Man With Wooden Legs, in late 2009.


From Indian Lakes recorded and released the Acoustic EP in 2011 and performed solo on a month-long living room tour across the US.


On November 2012, From Indian Lakes released its second album, Able Bodies, which was well-received by both fans and press. Able Bodies was also selected to be on Google Play's Top Unsigned List for 2012 releases and remained on the cover of iTunes as a "rising star of alt-rock" for three weeks.
