Leaf Rapids
Keri and Devin Latimer's latest musical project, "Leaf Rapids" is inspired by the wildly isolated nature of Manitoba, Canada. 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).
Kayla Luky
Singer-songwriter Kayla Luky lives in Grandview, Manitoba, a small farming community nestled between the Riding and Duck Mountains. This unique setting gives her country sound absolute authenticity.

Luky has played shows all over Manitoba, and toured Western and Eastern Canada a few times over, along with such events as Folk Alliance International, Folk Music Ontario, North by Northeast, Indie Week, Dauphin’s Countryfest, Home Routes, Harvest Moon Festival, Harvest Sun Music Festival, Prairie Winds Festival and Shine On Festival of Music and Art.

After much positive response to Kayla Luky’s last offering The Time It Takes (2011) she is currently in the studio with award winning producer Murray Pulver (Doc Walker, Steve Bell, Bros Landreth.) Out in January 2017, Back to Dirt will feature twelve new tracks soaked in alcohol, dirt and sorrow, honouring the roots of real country music.
