Alison Limerick Biography

1959, London, England. The first part of Limerick’s entertainment career was spent on roller skates in the stage production of Starlight Express in London’s West End. Her recording work, predictably, kicked off with sumptuous garage tunes, notably ‘Where Love Lives’, which showcased a simplistic but well executed musical approach, and was voted Dance Music Record of 1991 by Billboard magazine. This despite the fact that it was never released in the USA. Alongside fellow Top 20 singles, ‘Make It On My Own’ (co-written and produced by Steve Anderson of Brothers In Rhythm, and featuring Limerick’s boyfriend jazz vibraphonist Roger Beaujolais) and ‘Come Back (For Real Love)’, it was housed on an impressive debut album. The presence of David Morales and Frankie Knuckles on her second album, With A Twist, added further spice to the formula.
