Shirley Manson Biography

Born in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1966, Shirley Manson never had a very happy childhood. Teased by children her age based on her looks, Shirley went through emtional torment. Her red hair combined with green eyes inspired such cruel names as "bloodhound", and "frog-eyed". The relentless aunting left her reluctant to go anywhere without significant amounts of make-up on.

Later, Shirley's depression continue to deepen as she became more violent unhappy. The depression was so bad that she started planning to drop out of high school. Without an escape, Shirley turned to rock 'n roll as it gave her a release for her pent up frustrations. Hanging out in local clubs, and befriending other musicians, Shirley found a new world in which she could not only live but thrive in. Catching quick attention with her honeyed, seductive voice, she quickly began making the rounds as lead singer of different bands - including August 1984, Wild Indians, and Goodbye, Mr. Mackenzie.

During her tenure as the lead singer of the band Angelfish, Shirley met the individual who would shape her future. Butch Vig, one of the top album producers of the '90's (having worked with Nirvana, The Smashing Pumpkins, and NIN), was looking for a female lead to front a group that he and music veterans Steve Marker, Duke Erikson, Daniel Shulman were forming. Struck by Shirley's mix of beauty, intelligence, and vocal talent, he offered her a position in the band. Shirley quickly accepted, and Garbage was formed.

In 1995 Shirley and Garbage released their self-titled debut album to critcal praise and sales that toped eight million copies worldwide. Critics noted Shirley's emotional, yet simple lyrics, and the combination of her smooth voice alongside the roar of her bandmates excellent guitar and keyboard work. The band soon followed-up with "Version 2.0" in 1998 to similar success.

Garbage has had many ups and down since the release of "Version 2.0." Shirley was shocked to discover that she had been offered to be part of a multi-million dollar Calvin Klein modelling campaign, something Shirley never expected in light of her childhood teasing. The band also got the coveted job of singing the Jame Bond theme, "The World Is Not Enough," from the film of the same name.
