Miss Quincy’s Got a Smokin’ New Album
and a Hot New Band
Like The Devil Does, Miss Quincy’s second full length album is a moody collection of songs filled with dirty guitar licks, sweet gospel harmonies, swampy grooves, and stories of old time deal breakers. Miss Quincy and producer, Canadian roots & blues legend Tim Williams, set out to create an album with the gritty sound of tube amps, a tight rhythm section, and a band playing live-off-the-floor. Good musicians playing good music, it’s the oldest trick in the book. A natural evolution from her debut album Your Mama Don’t Like Me (Folk/Traditional Recording of the Year, 2011 BC Indie Awards), this new record takes Miss Quincy’s signature vocal prowess, her love affair with the electric guitar, and songwriting skills into new-found down and dirty territory. Like The Devil Does is both 4am at the whorehouse and the Sunday morning after.
This year also marks the debut of Miss Quincy’s new band The Showdown. Miss Quincy & The Showdown are a smokin’ hot all-girl trio featuring electric guitar, upright bass, and drums. Channeling The Runaways, The Black Keys, and Big Mama Thornton, Miss Quincy doesn’t fit the classic girl singer/songwriter mold and The Showdown isn’t your average all-girl band. You won’t find them singing pretty pages out of their diaries, instead you’ll find them starting a party everywhere they play by getting down and rocking out with raunchy roots & blues and straight up rock n’ roll.
Miss Quincy & The Showdown currently call the road their home. To promote the release of Like The Devil Does the band hit the highway hard in 2012 for an 8 month world tour that included the UK, Netherlands, Germany, Italy, Austria, and a cross-Canada album release tour featuring many appearances on summer festival stages (Trout Forest Music Festival, South Country Fair, Robson Valley Music Festival, Sweetwater 905, Freedom Fest, Music on the Mountain, and ArtsWells). They plan to write a new album this winter before doing it all over again.
