The wildly isolated nature of Manitoba, Canada inspired Keri and Devin Latimer’s latest musical project, “Leaf Rapids”. The lyrical themes explore the inner workings of people left too long inside their cabins in the dead of winter, and where spring explodes. Think of a warm layered blanket of bass, guitars and drums, and add the voice of Keri Latimer and the haunting sound of the Theremin.
Recently signed to Black Hen Music, Leaf Rapids just finished recording a dozen songs in Nashville, TN with producer/musician Steve Dawson (who’s accolades include a long list of Awards and nominations, including Juno’s, WCMA’s and CFMA’s), engineer Bil Vorndick (Ralph Stanley, Alison Krauss, Béla Fleck) and drummer Gary Craig (Bruce Cockburn, Blackie and the Rodeo Kings).
Keri and Devin have been performing together since 1996 in the band Nathan, whom they have toured internationally and appreciated various forms of recognition with, most notably a Juno Award, WCMA awards and a Times Changed High and Lonesome Club Whiskey Award.
Their debut album, “Lucky Stars” will be released on April 14, 2015.
