Artist Biography

Today continues the series-within-a-series, Femme Fun Friday. Tune in every week for a spotlight on a solo artist or lady-fronted band to show some love to some of the out-of-this-world gals of Roo.

When Grammy-nominated artist, Carly Rae Jepsen, debuted on Canadian Idol in 2007, she’d have only five years until her prolific single, “Call Me Maybe,” commanded the Billboard Hot 100 at number one for nine weeks and earned status as Billboard’s “Song of the Summer.” In 2012 she was inescapable, and her breakout stardom combined with her critical acclaim and cult following has cemented her status as a bona fide pop princess. In total Jepsen has released seven albums, including two pairs of companion albums. The most recent duo, The Loneliest Time and The Loveliest Time, feature a viral title track in Loneliest and an interesting juxtaposition of moods. Though most know Jepsen for her breakout hit, she’s spent time on musical theatre stages, including a run as Cinderella in the Rogers and Hammerstein classic. She holds her own and has opened on tours for giants like Justin Bieber and Katy Perry. Her set on the Farm featuring her unapologetically catchy catalogue will no doubt be a pop-filled fever-dream delight.
