English songwriter & singer, major albums "Kite" (1989), "Titanic Days" (1994) and "Tropical Brainstorm" (2000). Her first hit as a songwriter was "They don't know" (for Tracey Ullman in 1983). Her trademark style is a sharp wit allied to strong melodies. Her most recent work combines these with Cuban and Brazilian rhythms, creating her most upbeat collection yet. To date she has written & performed theme songs for three British TV series. Surprisingly for such a gifted writer, her biggest single hits have been cover versions, notably "Days" by Ray Davies, Billy Bragg's "New England" and of course "Fairytale of New York" with the Pogues.

  • Killed after pushing her sons out of the path of a speedboat, which was going at speed in an area reserved for scuba diving.
  • She has two children by ex husband Steve Lillywhite: Jamie & Louis. She is the daughter of the late English folk musician, 'Ewan MacColl' (qv). He wrote many songs including: "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face" ('Roberta Flack' (qv)'s hit), and 'Dirty Old Town' (covered by The Pogues). Her mother was dancer/choreographer mother, 'Jean MacColl (II)' (qv). She has an older brother, Hamish, and three younger half-siblings, Neil, Calumn and Kitty.
