Peaches: Age, Parents, Siblings, Family, Childhood, Ethnicity

Peaches was born as Merrill Beth Nisker in Toronto, Ontario, Canada, on November 11, 1966. As of 2020, her age is 53. She was born into a Jewish family but her family was not a staunch follower of Judaism. Her maternal grandparents were Polish immigrants settled in Canada whereas her paternal grandparents were originally from Ukraine.

As a child, she loved entertaining people but people around her mocked her ability. Growing up, she faced antisemitism (discrimination against Jews). It even got to the point where students from a Catholic school once threw stones at her and labeled her a “dirty Jew.”

Peaches: Professional Life, Career

Merrill Beth Nisker worked as a music and drama teacher at the ‘Associated Hebrew Schools of Toronto’ before becoming a celebrity.

Peaches burst into the musical scene with her very particular brand of groovebox and cocksure rapping. Though she came from avant-garde jazz (Fancypants Hoolum), an underground cauldron of acoustic folk (Mermaid Café), and deconstructed noise swarms (the Shit), it wasn’t until the turn of the decade (2000) that her fearless, political gender play attracted mainstream attention. She gained attention from North America and Europe and collaborated with Chilly Gonzales.

By the time Peaches signed with Kitty-Yo label and unleashed The Teaches of Peaches, she was already very popular. The critics claimed that she sounded like a Penthouse Forum together with Shirley Manson, Grandmaster Flash, and Charles Manson. After some time, she moved to XL, which in 2002, reissued The Teaches of Peaches. In 2003, she released Fatherfucker followed by Impeach My Bush in 2006.

She worked with Simian Mobile Disco for 2009’s I Feel Cream and experimented more with electronic music.

Merrill then took a break from recording and appeared in a one-woman version of Jesus Christ Superstar entitled, Peaches Christ Superstar. Some of her other projects included Peaches Does Herself, which raised her to fame. She then released the book What Else Is in the Teaches of Peaches, which documented her between-album work.

With longtime producer, Vice Colloer, and other guests including Kim Gordon, Feist, and Simonne Jones, she returned for 2015’s Rub.

On 29 April 2017, she performed Boys Wanna Be Her at the Not the White House Correspondents’ Dinner. In February 2019, she made her debut with the Staatstheater Stuttgart and performed as Anna in Die sieben Todsünden.
