Mis-Teeq

Biography: This south London, England-based urban vocal trio comprises Su-Elise Nash (b. West Dulwich, London, England), Sabrina Washington (b. Harlesden, London, England) and Alesha Anjanette Dixon (b. Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, England). The three women met in south west London in 1998, with Washington and Dixon sharing a keen interest in dance and choreography, poaching Nash to be their lead vocalist. A fourth member, Zena, left the group soon after their breakthrough, the hit single "Why?", an innovative crossbreed of R&B and clipped garage beats that established them as the leading female group in the UK garage genre. Much credit for the single remix that the trio used should go to Matt "Jam" Lamont, who inserted the faster music.
