  • Shirley Ann Manson (born 26 August 1966) is a Scottish singer, songwriter, musician and actress. She is the lead singer of the alternative rock band Garbage. For much of her international career Manson commuted between her home city of Edinburgh and the United States to record with Garbage; she now lives and works in Los Angeles. Manson gained media attention for her forthright style, rebellious attitude, and distinctive voice. Manson's musical career began in her teens when she was approached to perform backing vocals and keyboards for Scottish band Goodbye Mr. Mackenzie. Quickly she developed into a prominent member of the group and developed a formidable stage presence. Manson was approached by her band's record label with the idea of launching her as a solo artist, and recorded an album with her band under the Angelfish name. After seeing Manson in an Angelfish video broadcast only once on MTV's 120 Minutes, Garbage invited Manson to audition and record vocals on a couple of unfinished songs; she eventually co-wrote and co-produced an entire album with the band. The resulting self-titled debut, Garbage, was a critically acclaimed, worldwide hit, and was followed by four studio albums, including the multiple Grammy Award-nominated Version 2.0, and a greatest hits album. Garbage toured worldwide and sold 12 million records over ten years. In 2006, Manson began to write and record solo material after Garbage was put on "hiatus" and in 2008 was cast in her first professional acting role on the second and final season of Terminator: The Sarah Connor Chronicles as series regular Catherine Weaver, a liquid metal T-1001 Terminator. Manson returned to the recording studio in 2010 to write and produce material for the group's fifth studio album Not Your Kind of People, who have since followed up with a sixth album Strange Little Birds.

Ze begon met piano spelen toen ze zeven jaar oud was, later ging ze naar de City of Edinburgh Music School waar ze zich ook bij de theater groep aansloot. Op school werd ze regelmatig gepest en leed ze aan automutilatie. Ze werkte voor korte tijd in een winkel, haar eerste bands waren Autumn 1904 en Wild Indians. In 1983 sloot ze zich aan bij de band Goodbye Mr. Mackenzie als keyboardist en achtergrondzangeres. Ze bleef tien jaar bij deze band tot de band uit elkaar ging. Twee bandleden en Shirley richtten toen Angelfish op, met Shirley als leadzangeres. Ze brachten 1 album uit met 1 single 'Suffocate Me', dit trok de aandacht van de leden van Garbage, die - na twee audities in 1994 - aan Shirley vroegen om zich bij de band aan te sluiten. Sindsdien is ze de frontvrouw van Garbage. (nl)

  • Ши́рли Энн Мэ́нсон (англ. Shirley Ann Manson; род. 26 августа 1966 года) — шотландская певица и актриса, вокалистка рок-группы Garbage. Ширли Мэнсон стала известна своим харизматичным, бунтарским характером и необычным контральто-вокалом. Ширли начала свою музыкальную карьеру в Эдинбурге в начале 1980-х. Наиболее значимым стало участие в местной группе Goodbye Mr. Mackenzie в качестве бэк-вокалистки и клавишницы, а затем в новом проекте музыкантов группы, Angelfish. Увидев Мэнсон в клипе Angelfish «Suffocate Me» на MTV, музыканты Garbage пригласили её на запись в качестве вокалистки. После того, как Garbage сделали творческий перерыв после четырёх успешных студийных альбомов, сборника лучших хитов и свыше 14 миллионов проданных дисков, Мэнсон приступила к записи ещё не изданного сольного альбома. Ширли Мэнсон также снялась в сериале «Терминатор: Битва за будущее» в роли Кэтрин Уивер. В 2010 году участники Garbage возобновили деятельность и Мэнсон вернулась к группе. Ширли Мэнсон занимает 60-е место в списке «100 самых сексуальных артистов» по версии музыкального телеканала VH1. (ru)

  • "We wanted someone who could sing in an understated way, at the moment, a lot of these alterna-rock singers have a tendency to scream. Shirley is just the opposite. By using understatement, she can sound even more subversive."
  • "I had taken some of my solo music into the record label. They didn't really care for the direction I was moving in and I found it really disheartening. They wanted a pop hit, which I understand in terms of making money. I get that. But what they were going to ask of me was something I wasn't prepared to deliver and I felt kind of trapped. I just stopped writing. I just stopped. It was stifling".
  • "We wanted to work with a female vocalist who didn't have a high, chirpy, quality to her voice, we had discussed who we really respect, and names like Patti Smith and Chrissie Hynde came up. And Shirley had some of the same depth."
