Geek Of The Week: Grimes

Geek Of The Week: Grimes

It’s time to add another talented electronic music performer to our list of celebrates geeks. Canadian born Grimes, birth name Claire Boucher, has produced 4 albums worth of material which have received critical acclaim. Her own brand of synth pop seems to perfectly combine upbeat dance music and downtempo ambient. She has received Juno Awards, NME Awards, Webby Awards, and more for her work which Grimes describes as “ADD music”. She also does the visual artwork for her albums and promotional materials.

Needless to say, she’s more than worthy of this humble GOTW nomination. However, if that’s not enough for you, this music geek is currently dating Elon Musk, former GOTW and CEO of Tesla & SpaceX. Ahhh. We love to see geeks find each other. Geek love is a beautiful thing… and so is electronic music.
