Alison Moyet

Moyet's music career began with a brief stint tuning pianos before becoming involved in a number of punk rock and blues bands, most notably The Vandals and The Screamin' Ab Dabs. However, it wasn't until 1981 that fame knocked on the door. Working alongside former Depeche Mode songwriter Vince Clarke, she formed synth-pop group Yazoo, which was later changed to Yaz. They enjoyed some commercial success, with hits including Only You, Don't Go and Situation, before disbanding in 1983. Moyet then embarked on a solo career, releasing her debut album, Alf a year later. This was to become the artist's biggest success story, quickly reaching Number 1 in the charts and playing host to three of her greatest singles to date - Invisible, All Cried Out and Love Resurrection. The following year she covered Billie Holiday's famous jazz standard, That Ole Devil Called Love, before co-writing another chart topper, Is This Love, with Eurythmics star Dave Stewart. Her rise continued into the late 1980s and 1990s with her second and third solo albums, Raindancing and Hoodoo. A fourth album followed in 1994, with greatest hits compilation Singles hot on its heels a year later. Since then, Moyet has continued to release a steady stream of work, as well as appearing in West End musical, Chicago in 2001.
