Elizabeth Davidson Fraser (born August 29, 1963 in Grangemouth, Scotland) is a Scottish singer, best known for her highly unorthodox vocal work as the Cocteau Twins' lead singer. Her unique vocal stylings and abstract, indecipherable lyrics have generated much debate over the years, but she has often been circumspect on the matter when asked about it.
The Cocteau Twins were signed to Ivo Watts Russel's record label 4AD and Fraser found herself contributing to Russel's 'supergroup' This Mortal Coil which showcased the talents of his stable. Her most notable performance was probably on Song to the Siren; a beautifully haunting cover of the Tim Buckley song which enjoyed a considerable covert success in the late '80s.
Fraser has also recorded with Ian McCulloch (of Echo and the Bunnymen) and Massive Attack as well as featuring on the soundtrack to The Lord of Rings movie trilogy.
