Feist bio stuff

Canadian Leslie Feist launched her debut album, Monarch (Lay Your Jewelled Head Down) in 1999. The album didn’t chart and no singles were successful from it.

The follow-up, Let It Die (2004), did much better as it charted in Austria, Belgium, France, Germany and the U.S. It sold half a million copies worldwide.

Single Mushaboom did reasonably well, there was also a Ron Sexsmith cover in Secret Heart and Inside Out (Bee Gees).

These first two albums established Feist, setting her up for the big breakthrough in 2007, The Reminder. Released in 2007, this is where we find her signature song, 1234.

Initially, the single wasn’t a huge success but after it was synced with an iPod nano ad, Feist became world-famous, seemingly overnight.

She even got nominated for best new artist even though she’d been releasing for 8 years!

After touring and a well-deserved 2-year break, Feist followed The Rimeinder up with Metals (2011). Here we get the single How Come You Never Go There which reached #5 in the Adult Alternative charts.

The album itself charted high in several territories and was praised for its integrity (that’s journalists saying there are no hits here!).

Since Metals, Feist has released two more albums, Pleasure (2017) and Multitudes (2023). No hits have come from these either but both albums chat worldwide.

I’m guessing the highlight of her live show is still 1234.
