Leslie Feist’s presiding force reached its peak during the early 2000s with her second and third albums Let It Die and The Reminder respectively, even earning a Top 10 hit off the surprise success of “1234” when it was featured in an iPod commercial. Before her breakout, Feist worked closely with Peaches and toured with Broken Social Scene, who influenced her to take a more multi-instrumental approach.
