Marianne Faithfull

1946 -

Origin: United Kingdom

Main instrument: Vocal

Marianne Faithfull launched her singing career in 1964, with her hit recording of the Mick Jagger-Keith Richards composition As Tears Go By. The queen of Swinging London in the Sixties, she also made a name for herself in film and theatre. At the start of the 1970s, beset by depression and hooked on drugs, Faithfull's star faded. But in 1979, she resurfaced with a memorable disc, Broken English, her gravelly voice symbolic of a troubled decade. In its wake, a reinvigorated Faithfull worked with composer Angelo Badalamenti, experimented with the music of Weill and Brecht, wrote her memoirs and returned to the big screen. Notably, in the 2000s, she recorded two discs of collaborations, Kissin' Time (2002) and Before the Poison (2004). Horses and High Heels was released in 2011.
