An award-winning singer, songwriter and actress, as well as one of the UK’s best-loved musical artists, London-born Paloma Faith is known for her retro-pop and eccentric style, whose music often blends soul and elements of vintage jazz and gospel, often being compared to the likes of Amy Winehouse, Adele and Duffy.
Undoubtedly one of the biggest names in UK Music, prior to her career in music, Paloma attended Islington Green School before taking her A-levels at City And Islington College. She then graduated with a degree in performance at Northern School Of Contemporary Dance in Leeds, and later gained an MA in theatre directing at London’s Central St Martins.
Paloma released her debut album Do You Want the Truth or Something Beautiful? in 2009, featuring the top twenty singles Stone Cold Sober and New York. The album reached number nine in the United Kingdom, and was later certified double-platinum in the country.
In 2012, she released her second studio album, Fall to Grace, which reached number two in the UK and has since been certified double-platinum. The album produced her first top ten single, Picking Up the Pieces, and the top twenty cover version of INXS' Never Tear Us Apart, featured in the 2012 John Lewis advertising campaign.
Paloma Faith's third album, A Perfect Contradiction was released in 2014 and has become her most successful album to date. The album included the top ten singles Can't Rely on You and Only Love Can Hurt Like This. The latter became Faith's highest-charting single in the UK.
Her first 4 albums were certified platinum- equalling a previous record set by UK soul legend Sade, and Paloma’s more recently released platinum-selling album The Architect which debuted at Number 1 on the UK Albums Chart, her first to reach this milestone. The Architect followed the huge success of her previous album, A Perfect Contradiction which spent a whopping 29 weeks in the UK Top 10 and over 15 months in the Top 40.
She has received three Brit Award nominations, including British Female Solo Artist and Best British Album, and won one. She has also made feature film appearances in the 2007 remake St Trinian's, The Imaginarium of Doctor Parnassus and Dread.
As well as collecting dozens of awards in the last decade, including a BRIT Award, Paloma has reached a wider audience as a judge on The Voice UK as well as The Voice Kids, and as an actor in films such as Pennyworth, St Trinian’s and The Imaginarium Of Doctor Parnassus.
A down-to-earth and much-loved personality, Paloma Faith is the perfect headliner for any corporate or private event.
