“ We’ve worked with them for many years. It just made a lot of sense because we’re on the same page musically, so there are a lot of dirty guitar sounds on it,” she described.

“ It is raw and stripped down. Every note played and every drum hit has a purpose,” she continued.
“ We wanted to strip all of the fat out of the music,” she added.

 Another important thing about the new CD is it properly reflects the live show.
“It was definitely important that  it accurately reflected and sounded like the live show. I wanted to make sure people wouldn’t be confused that it doesn’t sound like the live show and vice versa,” she said.

Working with Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer was like working with family.
 Matt Rogers played bass on two tracks when bassist Shari Rae couldn’t make the session.
 Joy Mullen plays drums on all of the tracks and there are extra keyboards on couple of tracks as well.
 When they come to Lethbridge they will feature Christie Rose on keyboards and harmony vocals.  She will also be playing a solo set.

 Bassist Jessie Robertson will be joining them on this quick tour of Western Canada and Joy Mullen will be on the drums.
“We’re touring as a four  piece now. So that’s cool,” she said.
“We have a more mature sound. We’ve known Christie for a lot of years. She plays a lot with C.R. Avery,” she said.
The other change of the sound is using electric bass instead of a stand up bass.
“It’s easier to control the sound with an electric bass,” she said.

“ It is a more mature, and fuller sound, but it is still badass. Even more bad ass,” she enthused. 

 She noted she will be focusing on the songs from  the new CD for the Lethbridge show.
“And  some old favourites. It is pretty bluesy. If people want to dance and party they can,” she continued.

 She is excited to be back  on the road as Miss Quincy is constantly on tour so she usually lives out of her trailer, though has called Vancouver her home for the past year while making the album.

“I’m just really excited to get back on the road. Every night is different. One night we’ll be playing a dirty bar the next night it will be somebody’s home,” she said.
   Miss Quincy will be playing Europe in the Fall and Australia in the winter, but they will take  the  summer off other than a few festivals and a few shows with Harpoonist and the Axe Murderer.

“I’ll be going to work in the bush. That’s what I do. I need to pay off this album,” she said.
 Miss Quincy and Christie Rose play the Slice, Thursday, April 17 at 8 p.m..

There will be a $10 cover.
