She released her debut solo album, Monarch (Lay Your Jewelled Head Down), in 1999, followed by five more studio albums: Let It Die (2004), The Reminder (2007), Metals (2011), Pleasure (2017), and Multitudes (2023). Feist also released several live albums and compilations, including the notable Open Season (2006), which features remixes and collaborations.

Feist has received numerous awards and nominations throughout her career. Her breakthrough album, The Reminder, earned her four Grammy nominations and won the 2007 Polaris Music Prize. The single “1234” from the same album achieved significant commercial success, peaking at number eight on the Billboard Hot 100 and number three on the UK Singles Chart. Over the years, Feist has been recognized for her contributions to music with several Juno Awards, including Artist of the Year and Album of the Year. Her backing band members have included Gonzales (Jason Beck), Mocky (Dominique Salole), and Afie Jurvanen (Bahamas), among others. Feist’s music is known for its eclectic mix of indie pop, folk, and alternative rock elements.
