Tegan and Sara

Calgary-born identical twins, Tegan and Sara first hit the Canadian music scene in 1998 when they performed at Calgary’s Garage Warz competition. These award-winning twins began playing piano at age eight, and in their teens they were playing in their own punk bands.  Their touring history includes shows Sarah McLachlan’s Lilith Fair and and a summer 2000 tour with Neil Young and the Pretenders. In 2002, Tegan and Sara released If It Was You. Two years later, their commercial breakthrough came with So Jealous. In 2005, the White Stripes released a popular cover of If It Was You‘s “Walking with a Ghost.” That year the duo toured the U.S. with the Killers and had several of their songs featured in the popular TV medical drama Grey’s Anatomy.

In 2014, they recorded “Everything Is Awesome” the Lego Movie theme song with Lonely Planet. The song was certified gold and nominated for an Academy Award. The indie pop/punk duo’s latest release, Love You to Death came out earlier this year.
