Biography

Lindsay Dracass, a singer, was born in 1984 in Sheffield, South Yorkshire, UK

Dracass was discovered at 13 years old by her manager Alan Wood who heard her sing at a charity show in their hometown of Sheffield. On hearing her, Wood became her manager. Determined to get into the music industry, Dracass asked if she could complete her work experience programme in his music office. During which, Wood went a step further and introduced her to fellow Sheffielder, the hit singer/songwriter, Paul Carrack.

At the age of 15, Dracass performed live as a backing singer in the UK, Europe and the United States with Carrack and performed at the Glastonbury 2000 festival. On a trip to Los Angeles, she was introduced to hit record producer Peter Van Hooke, the current drummer with Mike and The Mechanics

As a 15 year old schoolgirl, Lindsay was selected through a BBC programme by the British public to be the UK’s entrant for the 2001 Eurovision Song Contest, which that year was held at the Parken Stadium in Copenhagen, Denmark. With a song entitled No Dream Impossible, Lindsey was the 16th act to sing on the night (out of 23 countries), and came 15th overall with 28 points - Ireland being the country to give her the most points (four).
