Biography

Shara Nelson achieved a measure of success, but little name recognition, as a charter member of British dance collective and trip-hop pioneers Massive Attack. Nelson contributed lead vocals to the group's biggest U.K. hit, "Unfinished Sympathy," and also co-wrote several other songs on their groundbreaking debut, Blue Lines. However, Nelson's limited role in the group proved unsatisfying, and she left for a solo career. She wrote a large quantity of songs diverging from the direction taken by her former band, using more pop song construction, and got a solo deal. She released her debut album, What Silence Knows, in 1994, and had a U.K. hit with Burt Bacharach and Hal David's "The Look of Love."
