The May 2, 2020 episode of “Pop Life,” features an in-depth interview with indie superstars Tegan and Sara. They stop by the “Pop Life” bar to discuss their new memoir “High School.” They talk about how music became the perfect fit for them. They tell stories about writing their first song, ‘Tegan Didn’t Go to School Today,” the important people in their lives and how music became a replacement for drugs and alcohol. Then the “Pop Life” panel, music industry insiders Farley Flex, Nathan Stein and Laurie Lee Boutet, talk about finding the perfect fit between business and art.
“I think our mom would say that we always were performers,” said Sara. “Once we got going and doing our bits, we could always draw attention to ourselves. It was mostly storytelling. Our grandparents were great storytellers I think we probably adopted their style of banter. But I do think that when we were able to actually make music and do something original, there was this sense that it was what we were born to do. I know that sounds so cheesy but like I think my mom would say, ‘You have always had this natural thing. When you were around people you performed for them.’ So when music came it sort of became a tool, a way to corral that, I think.”
