Miesha & The Spanks | CAN


Miesha & The Spanks - Miesha Louie is an artist representing the Canadian Secwépemc ethnic minority, and The Spanks are the many drummers who’ve stood beside her on stage over the years. However, her longest musical partner is Sean Hamilton, with whom Miesha has spent the last 5 years, building and enhancing their garage rock sound. Deeply influenced by proto-punk classics (such as The Runaways, MC5, The Stooges) and 90s riot grrrl/grunge (including L7 and The Gits), Miesha & The Spanks conjure up an energy that hits the listener in the face, throwing them into a world of killer riffs and sweaty gig venues. Their latest full-length album, „Girls Girls Girls,” released in 2018, landed at the top of the Canadian !earshot National Loud Chart and also reached the number one spot on the Indigenous Music Countdown, earning them three local music awards. In 2021, Miesha & The Spanks were nominated for Rock Artist of the Year at the Western Canadian Music Awards. Miesha & The Spanks are part of the Keychange 2023 programme.
