Lisa Stansfield Biography

Lisa Stansfield (born 11 April 1966) is an English singer-songwriter and actress. Born in Manchester, Lancashire, her career began in 1980 when she won the singing competition, Search for a Star. After appearances in various television shows and releasing her first singles, Stansfield, Ian Devaney and Andy Morris formed Blue Zone in 1984. The band released several singles and one album, but after the success of "People Hold On" in 1989 on which Stansfield was featured, they focused on her solo career.

Stansfield's first solo album, Affection (1989), and its worldwide chart-topping lead single, "All Around the World", were major breakthroughs in her career. She was nominated for two Grammy Awards and Affection is currently her best-selling album. In the following years, Stansfield released Real Love (1991), So Natural (1993) and Lisa Stansfield (1997). In 1999, she appeared in her first film, Swing, and also recorded the soundtrack for it. Her next albums included Face Up (2001), Biography: The Greatest Hits (2003) and The Moment (2004). After that, Stansfield took a break from music and focused on her film career. In 2008, she starred in The Edge of Love and in 2013 she appeared in Northern Soul.

Stansfield released her latest album, Seven on 31 January 2014. Its lead single, "Can't Dance" was digitally released on 16 October 2013. She promoted the new album with a tour of Europe in October and November 2013.

Stansfield has won numerous awards, including Brit Awards, Ivor Novello Awards, Billboard Music Award, World Music Award, ASCAP Award, Women's World Award, Silver Clef Awards and DMC Awards. She has sold over twenty million albums worldwide, including five million of Affection.
