Roisin Murphy

Singer, songwriter and producer Róisín Murphy is best known as one half of electronic music duo Moloko, alongside her (now ex) boyfriend Mark Brydon. Róisín met Mark at a party in 1994, when she asked him if he liked her tight sweater. She was, she says, '18 and full of it'. They recorded a few tracks together and Moloko was born. They signed a six-record deal, and the following year released their debut album 'Do You Like my Tight Sweater'.

They went their separate ways in 2005, and Róisín launched her solo career in the summer of that same year. She has gone on to release two successful albums. Summing up her career she says: 'When shooting a record sleeve up a Swiss mountain in the middle of a storm and going snow blind trying to milk a cow in a suit of armour (me, not the cow) I might wonder what's it all about? But I love the nonsense of it.'
