Mip Power Trio

The Mip Power Trio plays honest and edgy rock 'n' roots music that feels like a fun house party on a summer’s night.

It's work hard and play hard for Canadian rock 'n' roots band the Mip Power Trio. Since 2010 they have been gigging, touring, and recording while developing a sound that is unmistakably fresh and retro. Mip, Greg Kowalczyk, and Shane MacPherson are the Mip Power Trio's colourful cast of characters showcasing a buzzing chemistry in their “fantastic live performance.” (Unsigned Radio, CUIT. FM) Behind the energetic arrangements and bellow-worthy refrains lie Mip's smart, edgy, and honest lyrics. Each song is a brief snapshot of life, inviting listeners to raise a glass to the good times and yeah, even the not-as-good times.

On February 27 the Mip Power Trio will be releasing their long awaited sophomore album, “Half Pint Full Heart” which was produced and engineered by Ian McGettigan (Joel Plaskett, Sloan, Matt Barber, The Stars). The quirky collection of tunes ranges from punchy surf and heartland-rock inspired “Breakthrough” to the gospel and ska influenced “Take Me Back” - a tribute to Mip's homeland in Northern British Columbia.

Mip grew up in Northern BC amidst stunning mountains and vibrant music. After years of playing in various bands and locations she landed in Toronto determined to share her musical voice and consequently forming the Mip Power Trio. In just 5 years, the Mip Power Trio has released a debut album, “Haggard and Bedraggled” (2012) and has played well over 150 shows – including festivals – around Southern Ontario and along the West Coast.

In early 2015, following the release of “Half Pint Full Heart” the Mip Power Trio will be performing throughout Ontario and Quebec. Come August 2015, they will complete their 3rd Western Canada tour.

With a sound this distinct, the Mip Power Trio is a band to watch out for - so stay tuned, and have your beverage of choice ready!
