Canadian Provinces That Claim Feist As Their Own

Canadian Cities Who Claim Feist As Their OwnFeist won the $30,000 Polaris Music Prize last night for her fourth album Metals. Many Canadian provinces claim Feist as their own.

  • Feist was born in Amherst, Nova Scotia
  • Shortly after she was born, Feist moved to Regina, Saskatchewan
  • As a child, she then moved to Calgary, Alberta
  • In 1996, Feist moved to Toronto, Ontario

That's four different provinces that can claim Feist as their own.

Never heard of her, so is this a good thing or a bad thing?

I can claim two out of the four provinces as mine.

Feist is great... surprised you've never heard of her. She's been pretty big for 8 years now.

Quebec can have her. The govt should throw her in as part of their annual equalization payment.

Thanks for the links. The videos have been removed, but I'll try to do some listening tonight on you tube. I had a look at her wiki bio, and I am indeed surprised I haven't heard of her.

I'll get back to you when I've had a listen. Hey, you hit paydirt with Beautiful South and the Housemarlins, so fingers crossed...

I'm confident you'll dig her. Spin Let It Die a couple of times and you'll be hooked.

I'm not a Feist fan. 1234 was a good novelty song in 2007, co-written by an Australian, and that's about it.
Last week (already, I know) I posted my top 150 songs / 150 artists of 2012. Per the song I evaluated - she still didn't make that oversized list. Grimes, another critics' choice Polaris nominee fell behind over 20 other known Canadian acts to position 127; and for her I considered three songs for the list, more than probably all the others.
Drake should have been coronated as the 2012 winner, and I'm not a rap music fan of his either.

Drake, really?
If a rapper was going to win, I'd have taken Cadence Weapon 100 times out of 100.

For what its worth, I predicted a Feist win, but I'd have given it to The Japandroids.
