Leslie Feist — Crush of the Day
We can’t get enough of this 36-year-old rocker’s talent, not to mention how stunning she is.
You probably know this Canadian singer-songwriter for her solo work as Feist, or as a member of the indie rock group Broken Social Scene, which she re-joined from 2009 until their hiatus in 2011.
Her solo career began back in 1999 with the release of ‘Monarch,’ and each release since has been critically acclaimed; her most recent solo release selling over 2.5 million copies. She’s been nominated for four Grammys, including Best New Artist. In 2008 she swept the Juno Awards, winning Songwriter of the Year, Artist of the Year, Pop Album of the Year, Album of the Year and Single of the Year, and just this year she won three more Junos for her 2011 release ‘Metals,’ including Artist of the Year.
That’s to say nothing of her collaboration with metal legends Mastodon, her cameo in the 2011 motion picture ‘The Muppets,’ her collaboration with multiple legendary musicians including Beck, Ben Gibbard and Wilco or…Seriously, there’s too much. Check out these pics of her, and then check out her website for all the info you need to become a lifetime fan, if you aren’t one already.
This is still our favorite, though:
