Next show: Meredith Luce and Ana Miura, October 27

Hi there music lovers:

BobCat is back on its feet (or is that paws?), and we have an October treat for you, with two tremendously talented, bright, and powerful young women who we’re calling “the next big things from Ottawa”.

Meredith Luce and Ana Miura will bring their songs to BobCat on October 27, and this will be all treat, no trick.

Even though Meredith Luce has just released her first full-length CD October, her talent and composed vocals demonstrate a musical maturity far beyond her years. She describes her music as “Feist jamming with Sheryl Crow at a Carter Family picnic”, and I don’t think I can top that. Alan Neal of CBC Radio says “this is a voice I can’t get enough of”, and after hearing her you’ll agree.

Ana Miura is becoming a bit of a musical chameleon. As part of the collective Amos the Transparent, she says she’s “learning to be
the chick with the electric guitar”; as the prime mover behind Babes for Breasts, she is equal parts perfomer (with musical friends like Amanda Rheaume), fundraiser, and organizer; and as a singer-songwriter, she is a performer who brings her audiences music with lots of delicate and powerful grace. Ana’s latest recording project is the EP Tenacious Heart, and she is touring nationwide.

Think of this show as an investment in dinner-party conversation – in a couple of years, when people talk about seeing either of these young talents at the NAC or other big soft-seat venues, you can talk about the night you saw them with a couple of dozen friends and neighbours.
