Your Daily Lick: Tippy Canoe & the Paddlemen

Parasols and Pekingese



Tippy Canoe is one Michele Kappel, songwriter and lead singer for this Oakland quintet. What attempts to pass for old-timey pop is really a mélange of country, jazz, and folk from various bygone eras. With such an assortment of styles and Tippy's trademark ukulele lost in the mix, it's hard to say quite where the band lands.
