Miss Quincy and the Showdown to play Bella Coola Music Festival

  • Feb. 25, 2015 11:00 a.m.

From the high mountain hunting grounds of northern BC emerges Miss Quincy, knife strapped to her leg and guitar slung over her back, ready to rock ‘n’ roll. Her debut album, Your Mama Don’t Like Me, was released in 2010, followed by Like The Devil Does in 2012.

With her all-girl band, The Showdown, she’s played more than 250 shows and fifteen festivals through seven countries throughout Europe and North America. Their third album, Roadside Recovery, features a hot little number called “Bad Love”. With a thumping heartbeat that builds to a screeching riff, it makes you want to crank up the sound and jump up on the speakers. Roadside Recovery is full of soul and vibrant life, breaking boundaries for Miss Quincy and the Showdown, or rather, smashing them down in the style of Joan Jett or the Black Keys.

You won’t find them singing pretty pages out of their diaries–this is down and dirty roots and blues and straight up rock n’ roll.
