Alison Moyet first made waves as one half of Yazoo with Vince Clarke (of Depeche Mode, later Erasure), scoring hits like “Only You” which rocketed albums “Upstairs At Erics” (1982) and “You And Me Both” (1982) to the upper reaches of the UK charts as well as US acclaim.
After the duo split in 1983, Alison Moyet released solo debut Alf’ a year later, featuring the hits “All Cried Out” and “Love Resurrection”, produced and co-written by Steve Jolley and Tony Swain, as well as “Invisible”, written by the legend Lamont Dozier. In 1986 she returned with ‘Raindancing’, though her biggest hit came a year earlier with a cover of “That Ole Devil Called Love” (which peaked at number 2 in the UK charts). 1991’s ‘Hoodoo’ saw single ‘It Won’t Be Long’ nominated for a Grammy, but the release of 1994’s “Essex” was marred by battles with Sony, preventing her from releasing new material until 1998, when “Hometime” (produced by The Insects) earned nominations for a Brits and the Mercury Music Prize. Alison Moyet has released two more albums in the 21st Century – Voices and The Turn – and has impressed critics on the West End Stage in ‘Chicago’ (2001).
