Shortly after they graduated from high school, they performed at shows and toured for small audiences in Canada.

After releasing their second album titled This Business of Art, they toured Europe and Japan and made an appearance on David Letterman. In February 2002, Tegan and Sara completed their third album titled If It Was You and played at every small club in the United States. Two years later, So Jealous was finalized and the duo was nominated for a Juno Award better known as the Canadian Grammy.
