Feist - Live At The Rehearsal Hall.avi
Feist brings her eclectic sound to television as she performs tracks from her Juno Award-winning album Let It Die in Live at the Rehearsal Hall. The Nova Scotia-born singer/songwriter will also chat with host Lance Chilton about her life and art.
Leslie Feist?s first proper gig was supporting the Ramones at an outdoor festival, when her high school punk band won a battle of the bands contest in her native Calgary. Feist moved to Toronto at age 19; not knowing a soul in the big city, she spent six months in a basement apartment with a four-track recorder and a guitar. A couple of years later she was playing guitar in By Divine Right, an indie rock band that toured opening for The Tragically Hip in 1999. Feist released her first solo album, Monarch, the same year.
In 2000, Feist sang with her roommate, Peaches, on her debut album, and played shows with her in Toronto and Europe. Feist sang on her friend Chilly Gonzales? first European release in 2000, Uber Alles, and started touring with him in Europe. In the winter of 2001, Feist became involved with Broken Social Scene and, in between touring with Gonzales in 2001, added her vocals to their album, You Forgot It In People, then toured with the band to increasing worldwide acclaim.
Feist moved to Paris, and on her weeks off while touring Europe with Gonzales during the winter of 2002-3, they began recording some of the songs from her home demos together in Paris. Eventually those recordings became the Let It Die album, and ?Mushaboom? became an internationally known song.
Let It Die is arranged around Feist?s voice, and was intended to be a missing link between folk storytelling, classic pop hooks, doo-wop mood and melody and minimal indie-pop arrangements. In April 2005, Let It Die earned Feist two Juno Awards, for best new artist and alternative album of the year.
