"Sometimes I can't believe my luck."Feist, 31, seems genuinely floored by her recent successes, which include winning the Shortlist Music Prize, the North American version of the Mercury Music Prize, for her album The Reminder, on Monday.

What she attributes to serendipity others might ascribe to a happy, somewhat inevitable, collision of talent and market forces, however.

I meet Leslie Feist in Central London towards the end of a whistle-stop UK visit that has seen her play The Culture Show and Later... The Canuck singer-songwriter and I have a lengthy talk before she jumps on the Eurostar for Paris, and we begin by discussing her rise and rise.

"Yeah, the Apple thing was weird," says the singer.

"A bunch of individuals are meandering along their own paths, then all at once they decide to pay attention to your music.

For her album, The Reminder which released in 2007, Feist received four Grammy nominations, including a nomination for Best New Artist.

She also won five awards at the 2008 Juno Awards in Calgary for Songwriter of the Year, Artist of the Year, Pop Album of the Year, Album of the Year and Single of the Year.

It was fortuitous, certainly, when Apple opted to use her exuberant, nursery-rhyme simple song "1234" in their i Pod Nano commercial, but it was hardly a case of them donning a blindfold and sticking a pin in the phonebook.

Instead, Apple, like so many others after them, recognised the perky, banjo-imbued appeal of "1234", and their use of the song had a dramatic effect upon sales of Feist's attendant third record, The Reminder.

Soon after Feist was born, her parents filed for divorce and parted. Currently, the musician is living in a Queen West apartment in Alberta.

Famous for the hit songs, Feist has an estimated net worth of million as of 2015.

I went from talking about the 'little engine that could' aspect of making my album to having to think about this phenomenon that I couldn't really get a handle on. "It's not that I don't have an opinion about all that stuff," she adds.
