Widely recognized as one of the most compelling vocalists and songwriters in her genre, Leslie Feist is an 11-time JUNO Award-winning solo artist and founding member of Broken Social Scene. Following the breakout success of her sophomore album Let It Die, the Canadian musician went on to achieve international acclaim with 2007’s The Reminder: a multi-platinum-certified release that landed on best-of-the-year lists from outlets like Pitchfork, NPR, Spin, and Rolling Stone, in addition to winning Feist the Shortlist Music Prize. Along with earning four Grammy Award nominations, The Reminder delivered one of the most indelible songs of the 2000s with “1234,” a Billboard Hot 100-charting single that paved the way for Feist’s appearance on such iconic shows as “Saturday Night Live,” “The Grammy Awards,” and “Sesame Street.”
Arriving in 2011, her fourth full-length Metals was hailed as the album of the year by New York Times chief popular music critic Jon Pareles, and later won the 2012 Polaris Music Prize. In 2017 Feist released Pleasure, accompanied by a storytelling podcast series entitled “Pleasure Studies,” which was named “Podcast of the Year” by Apple Podcasts. Her latest, Multitudes, an album written and workshopped through an acclaimed series of immersive live concerts, was once again shortlisted for the 2023 Polaris Music Prize and praised by critics, including The Guardian, as one of the year’s best albums and live shows.
