Alt Country singer-songwriter and musician Neko Case has achieved international acclaim for her sophisticated vocals and lyrics - often described as lush, melancholy, haunting and intimate. Her four solo albums have all become critics' favourites, beginning with 1997's The Virginian through 2002's Blacklisted (which landed her an opening slot on a Nick Cave tour). Her recent live release The Tigers Have Spoken (which includes music from Toronto and Chicago shows ) made it to #1 on the CMJ Top 200 charts and reveals a more joyful and Rock influenced side to this multifaceted and multitalented performer.

Case's first musical forays were in the Rock and Punk realm. Born in Alexandria, Virginia she moved to Vancouver in her early twenties to go to art school and soon engaged in a wide variety of musical collaborations there with Punk groups like Maow and Cub to a traditional Country duo with Carolyn Mark called the Corn Sisters. Her most profile work though is as a member of Vancouver Indie Rock supergroup the New Pornographers. Case's Canadian's collaborations continue to expand to include Toronto group the Sadies (whose work is also featured on The Tigers Have Spoken).
