According to the timestamps on her original MySpace page, Boucher began writing music under the name Grimes in 2007. Her performer name was chosen because at the time, MySpace allowed you to list three musical genres. She listed grime for all three, before knowing what grime music was. Grimes is self-taught in music and visual art. Grimes Wiki
