Leaf Rapids' Velvet Paintings Album Release (Early Show)

Leaf Rapids' Velvet Paintings Album Release (Early Show)

Leaf Rapids is a small iso­lat­ed town in North­ern Man­i­to­ba where the Auro­ra Bore­alis graf­fi­ti the win­ter skies. It is also the bor­rowed moniker of a Win­nipeg band fea­tur­ing keen song­writ­ing, sweet and smoky har­monies, lus­cious gui­tar licks and the eerie sound of the theremin. Crit­ics can’t decide if their sound is cin­e­mat­ic Cana­di­ana, Man­i­to­ba Motown, or spacey spaghet­ti-west­ern. Keri Latimer, Devin Latimer, Joan­na Miller and Chris Dunn are real­ists and dream­ers. They are chem­istry pro­fes­sors, dry-wallers, child rear­ers, and cus­to­di­ans of the night that croon about love as it applies to vul­tures, bar­ber­shop stab­bings, satel­lites and vel­vet paint­ings to name a few. Col­lec­tive career high­lights of the band mem­bers include tour­ing the world, win­ning a JUNO Award while giv­ing birth, play­ing Par­lia­ment Hill on Cana­da Day, being signed and dropped by Net­twerk Records, scor­ing an Acad­e­my Award nom­i­nat­ed film, and scoop­ing a song­writ­ing award from Bryan Adams. Their much antic­i­pat­ed new album, Vel­vet Paint­ings, will be released on April 19, 2024 on Mile 33 Records.
