Hometown: Toronto, ON (Canada)


Leslie Feist was born February 13, 1976 in Amherst, Nova Scotia, soon after relocating to the Canadian prairies. Living in Calgary, Alberta she performed as part of the punk band Placebo (not to be confused with the UK act), who in their time opened for the Ramones. In 1998 Feist moved to Toronto, Ontario and took up guitar, playing in By Divine Right for a time and collaborating with electropop artist (and then–roomate) Peaches. She joined indie rock collective Broken Social Scene for their sophomore album You Forgot It In People, released in 2002. Feist broke through on Canadian radio with her 2004 album "Let It Die" and the single "Mushaboom," gaining international attention with the 2007 follow The Reminder.
