Profile Bio Text
is a Grammy-nominated Canadian singer-songwriter. She performs as a solo artist under the name Feist, and has been a member of the indie rock supergroup Broken Social Scene.
In 1991, at age fifteen, Feist got her start in music when she founded, and was the lead vocalist for, a Calgary punk band called Placebo (not to be confused with the British band Placebo). She and her bandmates won a local Battle of the Bands competition and were awarded the opening slot at the festival Infest 1993, featuring the Ramones. At this concert she met Brendan Canning and Kevin Drew (currently her boyfriend), with whom she formed Broken Social Scene ten years later.
In 1995, Feist was forced to take time off from music to recover from vocal damage. She moved from Calgary to Toronto in 1996 and took up guitar; by 1998, she was the rhythm guitarist for the band By Divine Right and toured with them throughout 1998, 1999, and 2000.
In 1999, Feist moved in with a friend of a friend, Merrill Nisker, who then began to perform as electro-punk musician Peaches; Feist worked the back of the stage at Peaches` shows, using a sock puppet and calling herself "Bitch Lap Lap". Feist appeared as a guest vocalist on The Teaches of Peaches. She also met musician Gonzales during this time, and a long-term collaboration formed.
