  • Tegan and Sara with The Astrea Corportation

    Tegan and Sara’s 13-year career has seen them build an avid global following of fans and
    fellow musicians alike. Their unique ability to bridge the pop and indie worlds has
    allowed their music to cross all traditional boundaries of genre, from being covered by
    The White Stripes to collaborating with superstar DJs such as Tiesto and David Guetta.
    Having sold nearly 1 million career albums and toured with acts from The Killers to Neil
    Young, Tegan and Sara have now released their 7th studio album – Heartthrob – as
    internationally-celebrated songwriters, performers, and artists.

    Tegan Quin and Sara Quin were born in Calgary, Alberta, Canada in 1980 and began
    playing guitar and writing songs at age 15. Following the release of their first
    independent full-length album in 1999, Under Feet Like Ours, they caught the attention
    of Neil Young’s iconic manager, Elliot Roberts, who quickly signed them to his Los
    Angeles-based label, Vapor Records. Tegan and Sara’s first international release on
    Vapor, This Business Of Art, was followed by extensive worldwide touring, including
    opening slots with Neil Young himself and a first appearance on The Late Show with
    David Letterman.

    In 2002, the band released If It Was You, a foundational moment in Tegan and Sara’s
    creative path and musical identity. Its fresh sonic template and critical success in the US
    set up their fourth studio album, So Jealous, which ultimately provided their global
    breakthrough. On the heels of 6 separate song placements on Grey’s Anatomy, a US
    radio hit in “Walking With A Ghost”, and a North American tour opening for The
    Killers, So Jealous cemented Tegan and Sara’s status as one of Canada’s pre-eminent
    songwriting forces and musical exports.

    In 2007, the release of The Con brought even more critical and commercial acclaim to
    Tegan and Sara. The album was co-produced by Chris Walla, with members of Death
    Cab for Cutie, Weezer and AFI all appearing in supporting musician roles. Their sixth
    studio album, Sainthood, was released in 2009 and was accompanied by a self-published
    three-volume book set titled ON, IN, AT, which chronicled a year in the life of Tegan
    and Sara, in both words and pictures. Sainthood was ultimately nominated for a Juno
    Award (Canadian Grammy equivalent) and the Polaris Prize. One of the album’s singles, “Alligator,” was remixed by a wide cross-section of artists including Four Tet, Passion
    Pit, Ra Ra Riot, and VHS or Beta.

    In 2011, Tegan and Sara released Grammy-nominated Get Along, a CD/DVD set that
    included a live record and a collection of 3 films giving a rare and intimate look into their
    lives and music. The first film, States, features American touring footage and interviews;
    the second film, India, chronicles their first ever tour of India; and the third film, For
    The Most Part, is a special stripped-down studio concert shot with a live audience of 75
    fans, friends and family over two days in Vancouver, Canada. The live record features
    music recorded during these concerts.

    Tegan and Sara have played countless festivals around the world including Coachella,
    Bonnaroo, Glastonbury, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits, and have toured with artists
    such as The Killers, The Black Keys, Jack Johnson, Neil Young, The Pretenders, Ben
    Folds, City and Colour, Death Cab For Cutie, Cyndi Lauper, Weezer and Paramore.
    Since 2003, they have headlined tours in North America, Europe, Asia and Australia,
    consistently selling out theatres around the world. Their music has been featured in major
    network television programs including 90210, Parenthood, Grey’s Anatomy, Veronica
    Mars, The Vampire Diaries, and One Tree Hill. They have performed multiple times on
    Letterman, Leno and Conan. They have collaborated with artists in all genres, from
    superstar DJs such as Tiesto and David Guetta, to seminal literary figures such as
    Augusten Burroughs. Their original 2004 breakthrough song, “Walking with a Ghost,”
    was eventually paid the high honour of being covered by The White Stripes.

    Though their music is not overtly political, Tegan and Sara are very politically and
    socially engaged. They are outspoken advocates for LGBT equality, and have done
    countless fundraisers for youth organizations, music education, literacy, cancer research
    and LGBT advocacy. The sisters enjoy reading, hair, ships, vampires, hot dogs, talking
    and relating to elderly people, self-soothing, rearranging furniture, and giving excellent
    advice. Tegan lives in LA and Vancouver, Sara lives in NYC and Montreal.
