With Peaches

Canadian artist Peaches joins Mary Anne Hobbs to talk about the experiences that have shaped her work over the past 25 years.

Controversial, complex and coruscating Canadian recording artist Peaches joins Mary Anne to reflect on the experiences that have shaped her output over the past twenty five years.

Peaches aka Merrill Nisker, started her career in 1990 as part of the folk trio, Mermaid Cafe. Since then she has released six solo albums, collaborated with acts including Iggy Pop and Kim Gordon, and incontrovertibly inspired the likes of Lady Gaga.

After a six year break from the spotlight ... Peaches is back, with a brand new album called Rub. In this intimate, long-form Key of Life interview, she opens up about the art, politics and feminist theory that inspired her earliest works, and drove her to make music again in 2015.
