Claire Boucher

Meet Vancouver's hottest hometown girl: Grimes, aka Claire Boucher

"Something very strange happened" to Grimes when she became an adolescent, Sandy Garossino, her mother recalls. “She changed into some kind of super-brain, exploring the internet all the time.”

Grimes' ethereal sound captivates online audience

She looks like a punk rock pixie, her self-taught sound is like Enya on acid, and at the rate she's gathering fans online, she may just be the next big thing in Canadian music.
