With the release of her new full-length album painting With Tides Wempe channels that passion into a powerful collection of contemporary Canadian roots music. The album comes on the heels of her 2010 East Coast Music Award for Rising Star of the Year. Born in a small Saskatchewan farming town, Kim lived for a period in Alberta before heading to Canada's East Coast in 2007. After only three months in Nova Scotia, Kim realized that what once seemed a daunting and unplanned move was actually put in her path for a reason. The change of scenery and people provided the theme of Painting With Tides and nurtured a fresh view on life, home, self, and music.
Music has been a life-long passion for Keith Mullins. His roots are in Cape Breton Island, where a family and culture of music fostered his passion and ability. At the age of 14, he started entertaining bar crowds with fellow band-mate, Steven MacDougall (Slow-coaster). After completing a music degree and self-directed studies in Cuba and Africa, Mullins turned his passion into his profession. In addition to touring, Mullins developed and facilitated some highly successful workshops, including a drumming workshop, a salsa workshop (with an eight-piece Latin band partly from Cuba with salsa dancing) and a songwriting workshop with good friend Steven Bowers. He has delivered these workshops to groups of all ages; in schools, at special events, and at festivals across the country. He was recently nominated in Music Nova Scotia's 2010 Educator of the Year category.
