Making her name in the pop world with The New Pornographers and later the alt-country arena touring first as Neko Case & Her Boyfriends, she has now struck out solo and is still making the same good impression. A talented singer/songwriter she performs original material, but has been know to throw excellent covers of artists like Randy Newman, Queen, Buffy Ste-Marie, and Bob Dylan into her live shows. Part of the charm of her live shows is her personality and chatting abilities. Her in-between song banter will have you laughing.
A headstrong artist who has not been willing to compromise her artistic integrity one bit, Case has often rejected big label offers as they don’t allow her to have complete control over her music.
Born in the United States, she went to art school in Vancouver and has adopted the country. Besides touring with The New Pornographers, Case has also collaborated with the likes of The Sadies and Carolyn Mark.
