About Chrissie Hynde

Separating Chrissie Hynde from the Pretenders is an impossibility. From the start, Hynde was the undisputed leader of the band -- its lead singer and songwriter, its heart and soul. And as the group began losing members to a variety of tragedies, her name and face became practically synonymous with the group, the one constant over the decades. She'd occasionally step outside of the confines of the band (she sang with UB40 on a pair of hit covers in the '80s) but the Pretenders were her calling. It wasn't until the new millennium that she toyed with the idea of a solo album, first with the 2010 collaboration with JP Jones called Fidelity! and then with 2014's Stockholm, her official solo debut.
