LITTLE MISS HIGGINS

Monday 16th, September 2013 / 19:47

LMH-mTHE REAL DEAL ON A NEW RECORD

Little Miss Higgins planted her seeds of blues, folk and rock ‘n’ roll in the fertile soil of the Canadian Prairies and, my Lord, how they’ve grown.

Her new album, Bison Ranch Recording Sessions, is the product of some hard work, cold nights and a killer new band. The beloved songstress, Little Miss Higgins, teamed up with engineer Steve Loree and the Winnipeg Five to craft 11 songs of blues, beauty and timeless stories. Recorded in a barn on Bison Ranch, the wooden walls and timber beams lend their creaking voices to Higgins as she opens the first track, “Heavy Train.” Just when you think you’re sipping cowboy coffee on a hay bail, the band comes in and it feels like the barn floor caving in after two shots of rye.

So often music consumers are fed the branding of a time long past, of settlers and adventures taming wild landscapes, lots of pretty pictures without anyone walking the walk. Little Miss Higgins and the Winnipeg Five are the real deal.

With the Canadian climate as it is, when do you think it’s safe to record in an outdoor location? Higgins thought April would be perfect. “It’s not too hot, not too cold,” she muses, “but it was the coldest April the recorded history of the Prairies.” Surrounded by snow that refused to melt and warmed only by a wood stove, those involved in the Bison Ranch Recording Sessions walk the walk.

With touring on the horizon, Higgins is done cracking the studio whip and has set her sights on performing. Having seen the show at this year’s Ness Creek Festival, I can vouch that one of the most beautiful things about Higgins is seeing her live and her interactions with the audience. “It’s not just about me, it’s about an audience. That’s what all of this is about!” Higgins finishes.

Make your way down to the Ironwood on October 6th and let Little Miss Higgins make it all about you. This is a show not to be missed.
