Peaches is a pop music innovator. Listen to her talk about the Canadian musician who turned her head almost all the way around, when she was a teenager. 2:20

Peaches is an electronic musician, artist and performer whose stage presence echoes her music: brave, declarative and loud.

Originally from Toronto, the artist born Merrill Nisker has gone on to work with musicians from Christina Aguilera to Major Lazer, while her own stuff has been featured in numerous films. You may remember the strip club scene from Lost in Translation.

So when CBC Arts got the chance to spend a little time with Peaches in Berlin, we wanted to know who her influences were. Listen to Peaches discussing one of her heroes: Carole Pope of Rough Trade.
