Leslie Feist was born in Nova Scotia in 1976 and showed an aptitude for music at a young age. At age 19, a vocal cord injury forced her to give up singing for a time, but she remained active in the music scene, performing as bassist for the band Noah's Arkweld and later as rhythm guitarist for By Divine Right. To date, Feist has released five solo albums, most recently Pleasure in 2017. Her music has appeared in a number of feature films, including The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn-Part 2 and 500 Days of Summer. Popular singles include "1234" (which she performed alongside the Muppets on Sesame Street in 2008), "Mushaboom" and "My Moon, My Man." Feist continues to tour both as a solo act (often as part of a double bill) and alongside Broken Social Scene.
