    Miesha and the Spanks

    Miesha and the Spanks

    Miesha Louie (mixed-Secwépemc) is one half of the award winning duo Miesha and the Spanks. Based out of Calgary, they’re equal parts Patsy Cline and Patty Smith. Combining serious topics with high energy and infectious grooves, the Spanks have opened for the likes of Queens of the Stone Age and Death From Above 1979. Their single Dig Me Out addresses the tragedy and crimes of the Residential School system. It went to number 1 on the Indigenous Music Countdown and received heavy airplay on CBC Radio. Miesha joins me to discuss their latest album, Unconditional Love in Hi-Fi, the complicated nature of identity in the neo-colonial state, teases an upcoming project and so much more. Enjoy!

In fact, since the time of our recording, he's already released two new singles, On My Own and Searching for Something. Tune in to hear an insightful conversation with Mike about the challenges of navigating the music industry in the age of streaming and so much more. Enjoy!
