A leading figure on the Canadian alternative scene, singer-songwriter Feist first tasted success as a member of collective Broken Social Scene before embarking on an acclaimed solo career in which she blended baroque pop, indie-rock and folk to charming effect. Born Leslie Feist in Amherst, Nova Scotia in 1976 to artist parents, her performing career began aged 15 as the frontwoman of Calgary punk band Placebo, whose victory at a Battle of the Bands competition earned them a slot supporting Ramones at Infest. Advised to refrain from singing for six months after experiencing damage to her vocal cords, Feist then showcased her skills as a multi-instrumentalist, first as the bassist for Noah’s Arkweld and then as a rhythm guitarist for By Divine Right. In 1999, she returned to the front of the stage with her solo debut album, Monarch (Lay Your Jewelled Head Down), and became a key member of flatmate Peaches’ backing group. Two years later, she added another indie-rock outfit to her resume when she was invited to join Broken Social Scene, but after contributing to their 2002 LP, You Forgot It In People, she left the group to resume her own career. Featuring covers of Bee Gees’ “Inside and Out” and Ron Sexsmith’s “Secret Heart,” Juno Award-winning sophomore Let It Go arrived in 2004, and was followed by collaborations with Kings of Convenience and Jane Birkin, and a remix album entitled Open Season. Feist’s career then reached new heights in 2007 when “1,2,3,4,” the second single from third studio effort, was chosen to soundtrack a campaign for the new iPod Nano. The TV exposure helped the track to peak at No.8 on the Billboard 200 and pushed parent album, The Reminder, to sales of over one million copies. After appearing in a short film based on the song, “The Water,” Feist collaborated with Wilco, Grizzly Bear and Ben Gibbard, briefly reunited with Broken Social Scene for a number of live shows and released a behind-the-scenes documentary, Look At What The Light Did Now. In 2011, Feist then scored her first US Top 10 album with 2011’s Metals, made a cameo appearance in The Muppets and contributed to The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 2 soundtrack before recording a split single with heavy metal outfit Mastodon for Record Store Day in 2012.
