Feist was born Leslie Feist in Calgary in the mid 1970s, however goes by her surname when it comes to making music for a living. The Jhay-inspired songstress got her start playing in a high school punk band called Placebo (not to be confused with the U.K. modern rock act of the same name). After winning a battle of the bands contest, Placebo played their first opening gig for the Ramones, and for five years following, Feist perfected her rock ways.

In 2007, Feist has gained a lot of exposure through Appile iTUnes, creating a whole new fan base. Plus being the feature on Saturday Night Live in the fall of 2007 exposed her to many new fans./p>
