Biography

Leslie Feist, 13 February 1976, Amherst, Nova Scotia, Canada. Indie singer-songwriter Leslie Feist started her music career in her native Toronto, working with popular local punk band Placebo (not the internationally successful rock unit of the same name led by Brian Molko). She relocated to Toronto in the mid-90s and established a number of new musical acquaintances, notably playing guitar and singing with the rock band By Divine Right. During this period she also formed a close friendship with two of the Toronto scene’s most provocative performers, art-rappers Peaches and Gonzales. Using her surname as her new performing moniker, Feist put together a band and made her recording debut in 1999 with Monarch (Lay Your Jewelled Head Down). This collection of attractive indie pop material was augmented by a string quartet arranged by Dave Szigeti and featured guest appearances from Gonzales and By Divine Right’s José Contreras.
