Neko Case (1 Albums, 0 Tracks)
Neko Case was born in Alexandria, Virginia and grew up all over North America, spending enough time in Tacoma, Washington to consider it her hometown. When she was 18 and already on her own, (she left home at 15), she began playing drums in a several punk rock bands including Cub but not until she joined Vancouver trio Maow in 1994 did she start singing in addition to playing drums. While living in Vancouver she attended the Emily Carr Institute of Art and Design, and in 1998, she received her Bachelor of Fine Arts degree; with that, her student visa ran out, so sadly she had to leave Maow and Canada. Before leaving Canada as a resident, however, Neko received six award nominations, two from the British Columbia Country Music Association and four from the Georgia Straight.
