Biography

Alison Elizabeth Goldfrap, 13 May 1966, Enfield, Middlesex, England. While studying for a degree in Fine Art at Middlesex University in the early 90s, Goldfrapp found her vocation in music and provided vocals on Maxinquaye, the award-winning 1995 debut of the UK trip-hop artist, Tricky. She also toured with him and worked with another acclaimed UK dance music act, Orbital before pursuing a solo career. She came into contact with the UK soundtrack composer, Will Gregory (b. 17 September 1959, England) in the late 90s and the duo found a shared interest in various kinds of music such as 60s French pop, Weimar Republic cabaret as well as movie soundtracks and electronica. Recorded over a five-month period in the remote Wiltshire countryside in late 1999, her debut, Felt Mountain appeared to much acclaim in September 2000. The album’s dramatic, emotional sound combined avant garde production and electronics with traditional musical values.
