About Imogen Heap

Classically trained on several instruments from an early age, English experimental pop artist Imogen Heap began writing songs when she was 13.

∙ In her teens, she recorded demos with help from English singer-songwriter Nik Kershaw, which resulted in her first record deal.
∙ She collaborated with legendary guitarist Jeff Beck on his 2001 album, You Had It Coming, contributing vocals to the tracks “Dirty Mind” and “Rollin’ and Tumblin’.”
∙ “Let Go,” a song recorded by Heap’s electronica duo, Frou Frou, was prominently featured in Zach Braff’s film Garden State.
∙ Her 2005 a cappella single, “Hide and Seek,” was extensively sampled four years later for Jason Derulo’s hit “Whatcha Say.”
Ellipse (2009) and Sparks (2014) reached the UK Top 40 and topped Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronica Albums chart.
∙ Heap has won two Grammy Awards for her production and engineering work—in 2010 for Ellipse, and in 2016 for Taylor Swift’s 1989.
