Biography

Natalie Jane Imbruglia (born 4 February 1975) is a British-Australian singer/songwriter, model, and actress. In the early 1990s, Imbruglia was known to audiences as Beth Brennan in the popular Australian soap opera Neighbours. Three years after leaving the programme, Imbruglia launched a singing career with the international cover and hit "Torn".

Her subsequent debut album, Left of the Middle (1997), sold over 7 million copies worldwide. Further releases, White Lilies Island (2001) and Counting Down the Days (2005), have been unable to match the commercial success of her debut, although the latter did become her first UK No. 1. In 2007 she released Glorious: The Singles 97–07, a greatest hits compilation featuring the single "Glorious", which peaked at number 23 in the UK Singles Chart.

Her latest album to date, Come to Life (2009), proved the least commercially successful in Australia and Europe, with a UK release cancelled altogether. She co-starred in the 2003 film Johnny English and made her leading actress debut in the 2009 film Closed for Winter.
