Sophie Ellis-Bextor first entered the Top 40 as the lead singer of indie rock band Theaudience; but it was her collaboration with Italian DJ Spiller in 2000 that turned her into a superstar. “Groovejet (If This Ain’t Love)” was the dance anthem of the year, a worldwide megahit that announced Sophie as the new face of pop and a star of the first order. In the two decades since, has become a frequent resident of the Top Ten singles chart, coming to define a generation of British pop with her joyous, vibrant and irresistible sound.
