Alison Goldfrapp

Alison Elizabeth Margaret Goldfrapp (born 13 May 1966) is an English singer-songwriter and record producer, best known as the lead vocalist of the electronic music duo Goldfrapp. Alison Goldfrapp was born in Enfield, Middlesex, England, the youngest of six children. Her father, Nick, had been an army officer, and subsequently worked for Scope and English Heritage. Her mother, Isabella, was a nurse. While Goldfrapp was growing up, her family moved frequently, eventually settling in Alton, Hampshire, where Goldfrapp attended the independent Alton Convent School. Goldfrapp's interest in music began in Alton, where she sang briefly in a band called Fashionable Living Death, formed with anarchist friends, and was involved in other bands, including Demented Children and Waste Product. Alison Goldfrapp was introduced to composer Will Gregory in 1999 after he had listened to her vocal contribution to trip hop artist Tricky's 1995 song "Pumpkin". Gregory felt a connection with Goldfrapp and invited her to record a demo for the film soundtrack he was composing, to see if they could work together. The demo was never completed, but the recording session had been pleasant.
