Feist Announces East Coast Dates

Category: music 216

Four-time Grammy nominee announces May performances in Saint John, Fredericton, Moncton and Halifax.


In support of her latest album, Pleasure (Interscope/Universal Music Canada), Broken Social Scene alumnus Feist will be performing a series of shows throughout the Maritimes in May with dates in Saint John, Fredericton, Moncton and Halifax.

Pleasure is Feist’s fourth full-length album and was shortlisted for 2017’s Polaris Music Prize.  This album builds off the warm naturalism of her previous release, Metals, and emerges as her most formally defiant and expansive work so far. While each album is a departure from the next, Pleasure finds the ten-time JUNO Award winner again showing the extraordinary depth of her artistry.

In 2004 Feist made her U.S. debut with Let It Die, featuring Mushaboom – which won the JUNO Award for Best Alternative Rock Album, and garnered major critical acclaim. Her 2007 follow-up The Reminder debuted in the Top 20 in the U.S. and was hailed by The Village Voice as a “great batch of simple, precisely arranged love songs — expertly produced, delectably sung.” The single 1234 boosted the album’s sales to more than a million units internationally. Also including lead single My Moon My Man, The Reminder won Feist the 2007 Shortlist Music Prize (making her only the second woman to ever win the award). After a several-year hiatus — during which she co-created Look At What The Light Did Now, a documentary about the making of The Reminder and her subsequent tour — Feist returned with Metals in 2011. Metals was her highest charting album, debuting at #9 on Billboard. It was named Album of the Year by the New York Times and won the Polaris Prize and four more JUNO Awards. To date, Feist’s music has sold over three million units worldwide and amassed more than 500 million streams.
