Middle of Nowhere Bio
Deep in the frozen darkness along the shores of Falcon Lake, MB, a pair of cabins sit. Hidden amongst the dense trees under a canopy of endless skies; five singer-songwriters quietly came together. Isolating themselves for 8 days, armed with blank notepads and a makeshift studio, they began the journey of writing, performing and tracking an entire album before the week was up. Spearheaded by Western Canadian Award-winning producer Rusty Matyas (Imaginary Cities, Weakerthans, Waking Eyes), he assembled some of Manitoba’s finest: Keri Latimer (Leaf Rapids, Nathan), Alexa Dirks (Begonia, Chic Gamine), Grant Davidson (Slow Leaves) and JP Hoe. They came away from the experience with a stunning collection of nine songs; ranging from deft vocal ballads to heart thumping anthems. Just like their surroundings, they embraced the challenge and transformed five friends into the Middle Of Nowhere.
