Biography

Amelia Fletcher (born January 1, 1966) is a British singer, songwriter, guitarist, and economist. She was the frontwoman of an evolving series of pop groups from the 1980s to the early 21st century. Her bands included Talulah Gosh, Heavenly, Marine Research, and Tender Trap. She also sang backing vocals for The Wedding Present early in their career and on the Hefner album We Love the City. She was guest vocalist for The Pooh Sticks on their albums Million Seller and The Great White Wonder, and in 1991 released a single under her own name, “Can You Keep a Secret?” She has also appeared on both Bugbear recordings, a single by The Hit Parade, a single by The Brilliant Corners, and the 2000 album Trend by Oxford band The Relationships. Since 2002 she has been keyboardist for Sportique. Amelia Fletcher was also an early promoter of Scottish act Bis who Heavenly performed alongside and whose lead singer, Manda Rin, repeatedly cited Amelia as one of her inspirations/influences.

In addition to her music, Fletcher is an economist working in competition policy. In 1993, she completed a D.Phil. in economics at the University of Oxford titled ‘Theories of Self-Regulation’. In 2001, she was appointed chief economist at the Office of Fair Trading. Fletcher has two children with her partner Rob Pursey, a member of Heavenly, Talulah Gosh, Marine Research, and Tender Trap.
