When Kiesza was a teen, she joined the reserves of the Royal Canadian Navy and became a code breaker.

Fun fact: she was also a Miss Universe Canada contestant.

Even though her music started off as folk and acoustic, she eventually opted for something a little more uptempo and dance-oriented. This year, she put out her new single Hideaway.

The song immediately blew up in the UK, making her the fastest-selling debut of the year so far.
