Biography

All Saints are an English-Canadian girl group. Originally founded in 1993 as All Saints 1.9.7.5., the group was re-founded in 1995 as a quartet consisting of members Melanie Blatt and Shaznay Lewis, and sisters Natalie and Nicole Appleton. They became one of the most successful pop groups of the 1990s, with nine top ten singles (including five number-ones), two multi-platinum albums, two gold albums and record sales in excess of twelve million worldwide.

All Saints were formed as a trio in 1993 with Blatt, Lewis and Simone Rainford, who released two singles before Rainford's departure in 1995. Natalie and Nicole Appleton joined the group for the production of their debut album, All Saints (1997), which produced three UK number-one singles, including the BRIT Award-winning "Never Ever". Their second album, Saints & Sinners (2000), was also a success and yielded two number-one hits, although the group broke up in 2001. They later reformed for a third album, Studio 1 (2006), but it sold poorly. All Saints were confirmed to have split up for a second time in 2009.
