Imogen Heap biography (bio):
Imogen Heap is a Grammy-nominated English singer-songwriter from Romford, London, most famous for her work as part of Frou Frou and for her 2005 solo record Speak for Yourself.
Imogen Heap played music from an early age, and is classically trained in many instruments, including the piano (her first instrument), cello and clarinet. She later taught herself to play the guitar, drums, and the Array Mbira. She had begun to write songs by the time of her thirteenth birthday. Her mother, an art therapist, and her father, a construction rock retailer, separated when Heap was twelve. The boarding school she was sent to lacked students wishing to pursue music and Heap clashed with the music teacher. His idea of punishment was to leave Heap alone to learn for herself; as a result she principally taught herself sequencing, music engineering, sampling and production on Atari computers. Following this, Heap went on to study at the BRIT School of Performing Arts & Technology in Croydon, Surrey, England (later attended by artists such as Prince). She signed her first record contract at the age of 18 to independent record label Almo Sounds, having enjoyed a prestigious live debut, performing four songs, which happened to be backed by her closest friends including the band Acacia, between sets by The Who and Eric Clapton at the 1996 Prince's Trust Concert in Hyde Park, London organized by Kyle Browne in 1998.
