Album Review: Miss Quincy - Like the Devil Does (Self Release)
Canada's Jodie Peck once again applies her deep red lipstick, pops on her familiar feathered trilby and slings her faithful electric Epiphone sunburst guitar over her shoulder and stands before her vintage microphone, assuming the role of her alter-ego Miss Quincy ready to deliver ten new songs, whilst teaming up with an all-female trio to hit the road and promote this her second solo album and follow up to YOUR MAMA DON'T LIKE ME. Blues-based at its core, LIKE THE DEVIL DOES is a cocktail of Juke Dive blues and sneering guitar licks, each complementing Miss Quincy's inimitable vocals throughout.
Whilst Dirty Sunday, Going Down and Hurricane each demonstrate her bluesy side, Dawson City Line proposes a more soulful side of Miss Quincy, featuring some fine banjo accompaniment courtesy of Tim Williams. Silent Movie is one of the highlights of the album, which features some vintage upright piano accompaniment by Ron Cassat's in the tradition of the sort of film score music before the 'talkies' came along. The only non-original song on the album is a take on the old Nina Simone crooner I Want a Little Sugar in My Bowl, with its classic double entendre. The Country-infused Dangerous has more kinship with The Devil Went Down to Georgia than anything else the Devil chooses to do.
Produced by Tim Williams in Calgary, Alberta, LIKE THE DEVIL DOES clearly indicates that Miss Quincy is no run of the mill singer-songwriter, but rather a compelling modern voice with a close connection with the past.
