Marianne Faithfull

Hampstead, London born Marianne Faithfull is an internationally famous singer, songwriter and actress.

She began her singing career in 1964 when she recorded the Rolling Stones penned 'As Tears Go By'. It was issued as her first pop single, and peaked at no.9 in the UK charts, and no.22 in the US.

More hits followed, including 'Come and Stay With Me', 'This Little Bird', and 'Summer Nights', all three of which charted in the UK top ten. In 1968, she was cast as the female lead in the film 'The Girl on a Motorcycle', which was the year's 6th most popular movie in general release in Britain.

Faithfull's chaotic personal life, which included drink and drug addiction, a five year affair with Mike Jagger, and homelessness, resulted in her career and public appearances virtually coming to an early end by the start of the 1970s.

Faithful gradually rebuilt her life, and released the critically acclaimed 'Broken English' album in 1979, which was certified Platinum in Australia and Canada, and Gold in Germany and France. It was included in the '1001 Albums You Must Hear Before You Die' musical reference book.

More critically acclaimed and best-selling albums followed in the 1980s, and in 1994 she published her best-selling autobiography 'Faithless'.

In 1997, she performed the backing vocals to American heavy metal band Metallica's hit single 'The Memory Remains', and two years later was the subject of an intimate documentary 'Dreaming My Dreams'.

To celebrate her 50th anniversary in 2014, Faithfull released her universally acclaimed studio album 'Give My Love to London', and a 12 month tour.

To date, Faithfull has released 20 albums, and her notable TV appearances include 'Absolutely Fabulous', where has played God over three episodes. She is also an accomplished stage actress.
