Imogen Heap is a famous alternative singer from Essex, England. She began writing music as a teenager, having [[ChildProdigy learned to play and taught herself to play many instruments as a teenager.]] She got her start in recording music as a guest vocalist for the band Acacia. After Acacia ended, she released her first solo album, ''i Megaphone''. However, despite its popularity, record problems and budget issues resulted in her being dropped from her record label. She began collaborating with Guy Sigsworth, Acacia's programmer and keyboard player. Forming the duo FrouFrou, they released a single album, ''Details'', in 2002. After getting dropped from their label, Imogen created her second solo album, ''Speak For Yourself'' in 2005, and followed it with ''Ellipse'' in 2009. Since then, she's been working on her fourth album. A large part of her popularity comes from the presence of "Let Go", FrouFrou's SignatureSong, in the movie ''Garden State'', and the use of "Hide and Seek"- first in the season 2 finale of ''TheOC'', then in the 'Dear Sister' skit on SaturdayNightLive, and finally in Jason Derulo's song 'Whatcha Say'. Unfortunately, the latter has led to many people only knowing her for "Hide and Seek". Given her worldwide popularity, this is sure to change. --------

* GaiasLament/[[GaiasRevenge Revenge]]: "Earth", where the earth itself is an annoyed mother chastising humanity, her children. * {{Hypocrite}}: "Aha!"'s first two verses- one is about a man who, while saying he couldn't eat wheat, or meat, or dairy (because of his own choices, not because of allergies), later ate a chocolate biscuit containing wheat and dairy, knowing its contents. Imogen wasn't amused (especially since she'd just taken a huge amount of care to make him a dinner he could eat). The second verse is about one of her neighbours, who, despite being an environmental activist, wanted to cut down a tree so he could see his car. Imogen really wasn't amused. [[BreadEggsMilkSquick The third verse is about a murderer.]]

* CreatorBacklash[=/=]ToughActToFollow: While she's certainly still fond of it, she believes that what made "Hide and Seek", arguably her most famous song, special is impossible to recreate and therefore she's not ever going to try to do so.

* SignatureSong: "Hide and Seek" * ShrugOfGod: Imogen Heap is not telling us what "Hide and Seek" is about, no matter how often her fans ask.

* WhatCouldHaveBeen: Originally, she wrote "2-1" for the soundtrack to the Film/PrinceCaspian film, but it was rejected and the track ended up on ''Ellipse''. ** Same thing happened to "Entanglement" for the film of [[{{Literature/Twilight}} "Breaking Dawn"]]. Apparently, the lyrics were considered too raunchy.
