Announced as Headline Performer at Santa Teresa Music & Arts Festival
13 February 2018 (Toronto, ON) — Today, Feist announces a series of east coast tour dates for the spring in support of her album Pleasure, which was released in April of last year via Interscope Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company.
The four time Grammy-nominated singer-songwriter will bring the album to life for fans in the east coast of Canada, kicking things off as a headlining performer at the Santa Teresa Music & Arts Festival in Sainte-Therese, Quebec. The pre-sale for these shows launches tomorrow with general public tickets available this Friday (February 16) local time. See below for the full itinerary, tickets can be purchased on Feist’s website.
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.
