With 19 albums to her credit and the newly released “This Charming Life,” the singer-songwriter’s music has touched millions around the world. Armatrading has received countless gold, platinum, and silver records, been nominated for the Brit Award, been the recipient of an Ivor Novello Award, and ranked high in VH1’s Top 100 poll for The Most Influential Woman In Rock.
Leaving school when she was only16, Armatrading undertook various jobs while writing her songs until signing to Cube Records in 1971.

In the career that followed, Armatrading has fashioned many classic songs including “Love and Affection,” “Down To Zero,” “Drop the Pilot,” and “Me Myself I.”
