Born in Calgary, Alberta, they got their start winning Garage Warz, a local music competition in thatcity. Since then, the twohave toured extensively with many artists, including Neil Young, RufusWainwright, The Pretenders, Ben Folds, The Killers,Rachael Cantu, Vivek Shraya, Cake, GogolBordello, Hot Hot Heat, Ryan Adams, Veda Hille, Little Birdy, Iron On, Little Brazil,Bryan Adamsand Weezer and on Sarah McLachlan's Lilith Fair. They are signed to Neil Young's Vapor Records inthe U.S. andto the Universal Music Group in Canada. The twins currently live in Victoria, BritishColumbia.

Originally, as when they were competing in Garage Warz, the duo was known as "Sara and Tegan". Itjust so happened thatthey didn't submit their own application to Garage Warz; someone else did,and reversed the names on the application. Theirfirst album, Under Feet Like Ours, was initiallyreleased under the name "Sara and Tegan"; copies are now a sought. aftercommodity among theirfans.

The twins tell comic stories on stage, a throwback to when they didn't have a lot of material but stillwanted to give people afull show.

While both twins are similarly involved in vocals and playing instruments, the singing of the leadmelody often goes towhichever twin wrote the particular song. Sara has been quoted saying thatTegan writes songs prolifically, "like a fish layseggs," eventually discarding most of them. Sara'ssongs, on the other hand, evolve slowly and methodically and almostalways make it onto therecord.

Their fifth album, The Con, will be released on July 24, 2007. It will be co-produced by Chris Wallaof Death Cab for Cutie.Jason McGerr of Death Cab for Cutie, Matt Sharp of The Rentals, HunterBurgan of AFI, and Kaki King will appear on thealbum. « hide
