[[LastNameBasis Leslie Feist]] is a Canadian indie pop artist known for her solo career and work with several high-profile [[CanadianMusic Canadian bands]].

At age 15, Feist began her career by performing in a punk rock band named Placebo ([[NamesTheSame not]] [[{{Placebo}} that one]]), which at one point shared a festival bill with TheRamones and opened for {{Radiohead}} in 1993, but damaged her vocal chords during a concert in 1998. Since she couldn't sing, she had to take up playing guitar and bass for various bands, including By Divine Right.

Fortunately, she regained her voice, although it was deeper and smokier than before. After she received a grant from the Canadian government, Feist released her debut album ''Monarch (Lay Your Jewelled Head Down)''. While the record was an underground hit, Feist [[OldShame didn't think highly of it]], and let it go out of print. After moving in with a friend, Merrill Nisker (aka {{Music/Peaches}}). Feist worked the back of the stage at Peaches' shows, using a sock puppet and calling herself "Bitch Lap Lap." She also collaborated with Peaches, appearing as a backing vocalist on ''The Teaches of Peaches'' and "Give 'Er" from ''Impeach My Bush''. She also appeared in the music video for Peaches' "Lovertits", in which she [[CargoShip makes love to a bike]].

Feist (along with several other Canadian indie bands) formed the supergroup BrokenSocialScene. During this time, she also recorded her breakout album, ''Let It Die'', in 2004. Three years later, she released ''The Reminder'', which was an even bigger success that spawned a hit single. That song, "1234", appeared in an iPod nano commercial and hit #8 on the United States pop charts, which was a rare accomplishment for an indie musician. The song was also a hit on the strength of downloads alone.

Since ''The Reminder'', Feist has toured with Broken Social Scene, collaborated with fellow indie bands Grizzly Bear and Wilco, and covered Skip Spence's ''Oar'' with {{Beck}}, Wilco, Jamie Lidell and James Gadson. A documentary film, ''Look At What The Light Did Now'', chronicling the making of ''The Reminder'' in a Paris mansion, was also released in 2010.

Discography:

* ''Monarch (Lay Your Jewelled Head Down)'' (1999)
* ''Let It Die'' (2004)
* ''Open Season'' (2006 - remixes and collaborations)
* ''The Reminder'' (2007)
* ''Look At What The Light Did Now'' (2010 - contains live performances, new songs, and piano instrumentals)
* ''Metals'' (2011)

----
!Some tropes embodied by Feist and her work include:

* AntiChristmasSong: "Please Be Patient", which she performed during a Christmas special for TheColbertReport.
* CanadaEh
* ConveyorBeltVideo: Literally.
* CoverVersion: ''Let It Die'''s second half is made up entirely of covers: "When I Was a Young Girl" is a traditional song, "Secret Heart" is by Ron Sexsmith, "Inside and Out" is by the BeeGees, "Tout doucement" was originally recorded by Blossom Dearie, "Now at Last" is by Bob Haymes, and the original Canadian release included a cover of "L'amour ne dure pas toujours" by Françoise Hardy.
* EverythingsBetterWithSparkles: Her blue sparkly outfit from the "1234" video.
* NewSoundAlbum - ''Let It Die'' dropped the more traditional BaroquePop qualities present on ''Monarch'' in favor of a more indie pop sound.
* OldShame - She didn't re-release ''Monarch'' or perform material from the album live anymore, which is a shame (no pun intended), because ''Monarch'' is actually a good album; it's just totally different from what she's doing now.
* TheOner: The videos for "My Moon My Man" and "1234" are both one long take.
* PaleSkinnedBrunette
* PeekABangs: Her usual hairstyle features long bangs shading her eyes.
* RearrangeTheSong - Gonzales recorded piano instrumentals of various Feist songs for ''LAWTLDN''.
* SignatureSong - "1234".
* SesameStreetCred- [[http://www.sesamestreet.org/video_player/-/pgpv/videoplayer/0/2c0cd479-be84-4d08-bf9b-1405def9ea92/feist_1_2_3_4 Yes, "1234".]]
* TrenchcoatBrigade: Frequently seen wearing one.
