i haven't listened to her new cd yet...but here's some interesting stuff on her:

Biography by Alex Henderson

As a rule, group efforts are something that come before a solo career—
not after a solo career is in full swing. First, the artist makes a name for
himself/herself as part of a group, then the artist leaves the group to
become a full-time solo artist. That's usually how it works, but with
Imogen Heap, it was the other way around; the British singer/songwriter
(who is also a classically trained pianist) had been an established solo
artist for a few years when she became half of the London-based duo
Frou Frou. Although Heap now lives in London, she isn't a native of
England's largest city. Born in the late ‘70s, Heap lived in Essex, England
as a pre-teen—and it was in Essex that she first studied European
classical piano. Heap didn't really get into rock until she went off to
boarding school as a teenager; eventually, she decided against being a
full-time classical instrumentalist and realized that alternative pop-rock,
Euro-pop and electronica would her main focus. In 1997—when Heap was
in her late teens—she signed with Almo Sounds as a solo artist. I
Megaphone, Heap's debut album, was released by Almo in 1998; the
album's influences ranged from Kate Bush (a frequent comparison) to
Annie Lennox and the Eurythmics to former Sugarcubes vocalist Björk.
Some reviewers have compared Heap to PJ Harvey, although Heap has
denied that Harvey is an influence. I Megaphone found Heap working with
three different producers: David Kahne, Dave Stewart (of Eurythmics
fame) and Guy Sigsworth (who has worked with major artists like
Madonna, Björk and Seal). After I Megaphone, Heap and Sigsworth kept
in touch—and in the early 2000s, they were reunited as the duo Frou Frou.
Hearing the name Frou Frou, one might expect something bubble gum;
one might expect some fun, frivolous Euro-pop along the lines of ABBA,
Bananarama Fun Fun, Jemma & Elise or Aqua. But there is nothing bubble
gum about Frou Frou, whose alternative pop-rock tends to be
atmospheric, dreamy and ethereal. Frou Frou's work is very European-
sounding, although not in a cutesy, bubble gum way. As Frou Frou, Heap
and Sigsworth signed with MCA/Universal in 2001, which didn't mean that
Heap was giving up her solo career—Frou Frou was meant to be a part-
time project. Details, the British duo's first album, was released in
England and the United States in 2002. "Breath In" was released as the
album's first single. In 2005, Heap resumed her solo career with the
release of Speak For Yourself.

Yeah, like Gleek mentioned, that's Frou Frou singing on the Garden State soundtrack. Imogen Heap just happens to be the singer of the duo. Either way, Frou Frou rocks the hizzy, and so does Imogen's solo work.

By the way, I'm currently listening to "Nerve" by Soilwork via my Myspace profile (see sig).

http://www.myspace.com/imogenheap--biography toward the bottom wrote:Working with Frou Frou partner, Madonna and Britney producer Guy Sigsworth had been “an apprenticeship in making amazing records,” says Heap. But Heap was adamant that with her next project, she should get the recognition she deserved. “It’s not Guy’s fault, but with Frou Frou, everyone assumed the man did all the production and engineering, mixing and programming and that the girl – me – just sang,” explains Heap. “And I have to say that really irritated me. We did everything together. I’d been programming on Macs since I was twelve and that was more of a love to me than singing ever was.” After her break-up with Universal/Island, Heap felt the time had come for change. “I loved working with Guy,” she says. “I’d learnt so much from him and all the other various collaborations I’d done over the years. Now I was bursting with ideas and just wanted to get my hands really dirty!"

I was listening to musci and paused it have a conversation. It was Shame on Me, by Sister Hazel. All my non-Classical, non-Christmas music on shuffle makes for some interesting combos.
