Listen to Alison Moyet.

Known for her British punk sound, Moyet has earned a reputation as the high priestess of electronic pop in the UK. Over her decades-long solo career, she has continually evolved both musically and personally.

Born in Essex to a French father and an English mother, Moyet left school at age sixteen and released her triple-platinum solo debut, Alf, when she was twenty-three. In the mid-1980’s, Moyet was Britain’s biggest female solo star. Her covers of “That Ole Devil Called Love” and “Love Letters” displayed her strength as a classic artist, while her self-penned hits like “Love Resurrection” and “All Cried Out” showcased her talent as a songwriter.

Moyet’s voice is a powerful yet sensitive instrument that has never forgotten its Essex roots. . Aiming to transcend beyond the world of pop and experiment with a darker sound, Moyet’s albums, Hoodoo and This House, offer a more mature sound for the artist and led to her first Grammy nomination.

In the last decade, Moyet has played Mama Morton in the West End hit musical, Chicago, acted in the Kathy Burke-directed play, Smaller, and toured the UK with Academy Award-winning French composer, Michel Le Grand.

This summer, Moyet releases her latest album, Other. The soundtrack-style album, bursting with clarity, vitality, and freshness, is grounded in Moyet’s rock ’n’ roll roots and ties in adventurous electronic pop sounds with her poetic and thought-provoking lyrics.
