Kelli Ali Biography (Wikipedia)

Kelli Dayton, also known as Kelli Ali (a name she took to honour her father, Michael Ali) is a female vocalist most recognized for being lead singer for the trip hop group Sneaker Pimps.

She was born 30 June 1974 in Birmingham, England to an Irish/English mother and Indian father.

Before Sneaker Pimps, Kelli was part of a group called Psycho Drama, which she joined when she was 16 years old. A few years later, she was asked by Russell Cross of the band The Lumieres to join his band (as their songwriter, singer, and lead guitarist). The Lumieres only had one major single, "Cinder Hearts".

In the Sneaker Pimps she was featured prominently in both the songs and the music videos for the album Becoming X (the group finding fame following the release of the hit single "6 Underground"), but was released from the group in 1998 when they decided to do vocals for their own songs.

After leaving the Sneaker Pimps, she moved on to a solo career under the name Kelli Ali. Her first solo album was Tigermouth in 2003, which included tracks "Sunlight in the Rain" and "Kids," and featured ex-Doors drummer John Densmore. She toured alongside Garbage in 2003 and released a follow-up album, Psychic Cat, in mid-2004. The second album was more of a return to Ali's rock and roll roots and featured musician-turned-author Tony O'Neill on keyboards.
