Biography


For Carly Rae Jepsen, it was endless lucky little door openings. She was born November 20, 1985 in Mission, British Columbia. She attended Canadian College of Performing Arts in Victoria, BC when one of her teachers encouraged her to audition for Canadian Idol. "On Season 5, I ended up being ushered by my high school drama teacher to go to the audition. It was one of those things that I didn't ever expect to be the thing that worked, but it really was the first level of exposure that I ever had," she said in an interview.

Jepsen finished third in the competition and was signed to Fontana and MapleMusic after completing the Idol tour. She poured her time and energy for the writing and recording of her first album with producer Ryan Stewart. Her first single and a cover of John Denver's song, "Sunshine on My Shoulders", was released in June 2008. Her debut album was titled "Tug of War" and released three months after the singles.
