Paloma Faith Biography (Wikipedia)
Paloma Faith (born Paloma Faith Blomfield; 21 July 1981) is an English singer, songwriter, and actress. Faith is known for her retro and eccentric style. Faith met her managers Jamie Binns and Christian Wåhlberg in 2007. Her debut album, Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful? was released in 2009. It is certified double platinum in the UK. The album contains her first single, "Stone Cold Sober". The album also contains certified singles — "New York" and "Upside Down", both of which achieved a silver certification in the UK.
