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, Under Feet Like Ours, in 1999, 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 2011, Tegan and Sara released GET ALONG a CD/DVD set that includes a live record and collection of 3 films that give a rare and intimate look into their lives and music. The first film, 'States' uses 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 1hr 10min 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 Cyndi Lauper
, Neil Young
, The Pretenders, The Killers, Jack Johnson
, Ben Folds
, City and Colour, Death Cab For Cutie, Weezer, Paramore, and coming up in October 2012 - The Black Keys. 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, 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.
