Biography

Nerina Pallot (pronounced pal-oh in the French style) (b. 1975) is a London-based recording artist.

Pallot was born in London, but spent most of her childhood on the island of Jersey. Her mother is from India, whilst her father is native born from Jersey. Early in life, she spent some time living in India, but spent most of her early school years in Jersey. From there she won a scholarship to Wellington College, a famous military public school in England. Her time at this school provides much of the personal inspiration behind her single Everybody’s Gone to War as several of her school friends were directly involved in the Iraq war.

Nerina Pallot is classically trained in singing and piano, and then engaged in a peripatetic career around the fringes of the music industry. Outside these various industry-related jobs, Nerina Pallot was an active part-time musician with an ambition to follow a career in performing and song writing. At some point her career took her to her favourite job of this time, as PA to the music industry executive Andrew King; a key figure in the management of Pink Floyd from its earliest days. Still following her ambition to pursue a musical career, Pallot signed to Polydor in her mid-20s, despite misgivings from Andrew King. This signing resulted in the release of an album containing self-penned songs; the ironically titled Dear Frustrated Superstar (2001). However, singles released from this album failed to make a sales mark as did the album. Following this, Nerina Pallot was dropped by Polydor among some bitter recriminations which are documented on her web site. This experience was later to lead to the writing of Mr. King, a touching, and very probably unique tribute to a senior music industry executive.

    Saying there's too much Nerina is like saying you're too much in love with someone you're married to or that you're making too much money or something like this. It's never enough.

    There is no such thing as "too much" Nerina Pallot. If you don't want that many, wait until she does a 'best of' album of songs from each EP. She even said herself this isn't for the casual fan, but the dedicated who can't get enough of her loveliness.

    I really love what she's doing with the EPs, if they're all as good as The Hold Tight we're in for a pretty good 2014 from Nerina.

    anyone have the songs off the "Alien" single, like "The Girl From Lakeville" and "57 Flavours"? I had the single years ago, but someone in my family threw it away. Miss those songs especially. I remember Nerina herself sent me demos years a go too, which i regrettably no longer have; there was one that especially good :/ I was surprised to like some of her new stuff too, considering she has taken such a commercial route. Any help, would be great.
