“ I’ve been writing a lot of songs that don’t  fit in with Miss Quincy that I wrote while working up north in the bush camp as a cook. So it’s country, but not the kind of country you hear on the radio,” Peck said from Vancouver.

 Since her last Southern Alberta show at the 2016 South Country Fair, she has been touring relentlessly  , stopping only to recharge by working as a cook in a bush camp.

“I’ve been doing that for my whole life, since I was 4. My mom was a bush cook. So it’s very much a part of me,” she said.

“ There’s no electricity and no internet, so It’s a chance to recharge and reset,” she said.

“ And I’ve written a lot of songs while I’ve been there. They are very much influenced by old school country or outlaw country,” she said adding they are inspired by the people working and living there and the issues they face.
She plans to release her first solo album in the Spring. She hasn’t released a single from it yet.

Burton and Peck start their tour in Vancouver before heading east.
“ This is my first solo tour, so it is exciting but also a little terrifying,” she said, adding she is looking forward to touring with Sarah Burton.


“ We’ve been friends for a number of years, but she’s been living in Texas for quite a few years. We met on the touring circuit. You meet a lot of people on the touring circuit, so it is nice to tour together,” she said.

“ It’s just fun to hit the road with these songs and stories,” she continued, adding she and Burton will likely play individual solo sets and play together at the end of the night.
“ I’m excited about this album and  about these songs. I’m very proud of it, ”she said, adding she is also working on new Miss Quincy music.

 Jody Peck and Sarah Burton play the Owl Acoustic Lounge at 9 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 14. Admission is by donation.
