Lily Allen Career
At the age of 11, Racheel Santesso overheard her singing “Wonderwall” by Oasis in the school’s playground. She started giving her lunchtime singing lessons. This led to Allen singing “Baby Mine” from Disney’s Dumbo at a school concert.
She played piano to grade 5 standard and achieved Grade 8 in singing. She played violin, guitar and trumpet and was a member of a chamber choir. Her first solo was “In the Bleak Midwinter”.
In 2002, she was signed to London Records. When the executive who had signed her left, the label lost interest and she left without releasing any song. In 2005, Allen was signed to Regal Recordings; they gave her £25,000 to produce an album, though they were unable to provide much support for it due to their preoccupation with other releases.
Allen then created an account on MySpace and began posting demos that she recorded in November 2005. The demos attracted thousands of listeners, and 500 limited edition 7″ vinyl singles of “LDN” were rush-released, reselling for as much as £40. In July 2006 she released her debut album ‘Alright, Still’.
