Elizabeth Fraser Biography (Wikipedia)

Elizabeth Davidson Fraser (born 29 August 1963), also known as Liz Fraser, is a Scottish singer, songwriter and musician. Hailing from Grangemouth, Scotland, she is best known as the vocalist for the band Cocteau Twins and on Massive Attack's album "Mezzanine". She has a soprano vocal range. She was described by critic Jason Ankeny as "an utterly unique performer whose swooping, operatic vocals relied less on any recognizable language than on the subjective sounds and textures of verbalized emotions".

Her distinctive style has received much critical praise in her four decade career; she was once described as "the voice of God." Her lyrics with many of the Cocteau Twins's songs range from straightforward English to semi-comprehensible sentences and abstract mouth music. For some recordings, she has said she used foreign words without knowing what they meant – the words acquired meaning for her only as she sang them.
