The Alison Moyet Special
Born in Essex, Alison Moyet, 56, was in several punk bands before forming Yazoo with Vince Clarke in 1981. They had multiple hits, including Only You. After they disbanded in 1983, her debut solo album, Alf, went to number one. She has three Brit Awards. Her ninth studio album, Other, has just been released she now lives in Brighton. Her UK album sales have reached a certified 23 million, with over a million singles sold. All seven of her studio albums and three compilation albums have charted in the Top 30 UK Album Chart, with two of the albums reaching number one. Her most recent album, her ninth, Other, was released 16 June 2017. This week we explore her career as someone I have admired since her early days growing up in Basildon near Southend (she is a Southend United supporter) and we’ll hear something of the sheer diversity of her musical ability and the range of her voice.
