With her first Grammy® at the age of 23 (Best Female Pop Vocal Performance for her single “I'm Like a Bird”), Nelly Furtado has more than lived up to her early promise. A first-generation Canadian from Victoria, B.C., Furtado grew up in a musical family, performed in Portuguese and English by age four, and recorded and performed throughout her teens, playing trombone in a jazz band and dancing in musicals. Influenced by rap, bossa nova, hip hop, R&B, techno, and the work of such unique and diverse talents as Jack Kerouac, Prince, Leonard Cohen, Marvin Gaye, Andy Warhol and Portishead, Furtado has developed into a self-assured and versatile songwriter — her first album, Whoa Nelly! (DreamWorks Records, 2000), picked up a total of four Grammy nominations, including Song of the Year. Mix caught Furtado's two sold-out shows at San Francisco's Warfield Theatre in February, one of 40-plus stops on her first U.S. tour as a headliner.
