Kerri Anderson is a Canadian pop and rock singer, most prominent in the early 1990s.[1] She is most noted for garnering a Juno Award nomination for Most Promising Female Vocalist at the Juno Awards of 1992.[2]

Born and raised in Edmonton, Alberta, Anderson played piano in her youth and played briefly with a local band called Wages of Sin[1] before recording a number of demo songs.[1] The songs garnered her airplay on 96 K-Lite in the city, and the station recorded one of her subsequent live shows for broadcast;[1] the recording in turn led to her becoming the first artist signed to Randy Nicklaus' Impact Records.[1]

Impact released Anderson's album Labyrinth in 1991.[3] However, by 1992 Impact Records was being taken over by MCA Records, and Labyrinth got lost in the shuffle.[4] Left without a record label, Anderson battled clinical depression for several months before reemerging as a performer on Edmonton's local music scene again.[4]
