Alison Limerick

Singer Alison Limerick began her music career during the mid-'80s, after attending the London School of Contemporary Dance, and lending backing vocals to high-profile recordings like the Style Council's 1985 LP Our Favourite Shop. A year later, 4AD label chief Ivo Watts-Russell tapped her to appear on Filigree & Shadow, the second album from his all-star This Mortal Coil project; Limerick also appeared on the follow-up, 1991's Blood. Work with Peter Murphy (1992's Holy Smoke) followed before Limerick finally made her solo debut in 1994, teaming with renowned dance producers David Morales and Frankie Knuckles for hits including "Where Love Lives" and the U.K. Top 20 smash "Make It on My Own"; the full-length With a Twist appeared the same year. The 1996 remix collection, Club Classics followed, and a year later Limerick returned with "Put Your Faith in Me." ~ Jason Ankeny
