Louise Elizabeth Nurding was born on the 4th of November, 1974 in Lewisham, England. The only daughter of parents Tim (a builder) and Lynne - she has two brothers, Joe and Sam. Louise is a house-hold name in the UK and known for her "girl-next-door" style, blonde-ish/brown hair, blue eyes and stunning good looks.

Having trained at the Italia Conti Stage School, her career started in a successful all-girl band called Eternal (signed to EMI) Easther and Vernie Bennett. Despite hits like "Stay" and "Save Our Love" in 1993, Louise went solo.

Her first solo single was "Light of My Life" which was followed by "In Walked Love". The success of both singles prompted the release of her debut solo album, "Naked", containing other successful singles such as "Undivided Love" and "One Kiss From Heaven".

During the success of Naked, Louise performed in a suggestive outfit (no, not as her album title implies) on Top of the Pops, which could have reinforced the fact that her looks and sex appeal had something to do with her success. But once 1997's "Woman In Me" and hits like "Arms Around the World", "Let's Go Round Again" and "All That Matters" were released, all suspicions of Louise's success were dispelled.

Louise then took a 2-year hiatus, but in that time period, she married Liverpool midfielder Jamie Redknapp (something her and Posh Spice have in common), and gained much recognition as one of the UK's hottest stars. Louise was named Second Sexiest Woman On the Planet by Sky Magazine in 1996, won Top Lass in Melody Maker, and 3 awards in the Smash Hits Poll in 1997 for Best Female Singer, Best Dressed Female and Most Fanciable Woman. FHM named Louise the Second Sexiest Woman in 1999.

Finally, after a much-anticipated return to the music scene, Louise released her third album, Elbow Beach (named after the golden stretch of sand where she spent her honeymoon and "First Kiss (The Wedding Song)", "Bed Time" and "In Our Room" are all dedicated to the joy of sex and being married), in 2000. It also contained the smash hit, "2 faced", which has been re-released several times as a club mix.
