Louise was born in London and grew up in the town East Grinstead, West Sussex where she attended Imberhorne Secondary School. She first came to prominence as a member of the all girl group Eternal. After a string of hits in 1993-4 from debut album Always & Forever (which became the first by an all girl group to sell over one million copies in the UK), she left the group in 1995 to pursue a solo career.
So far, Louise has registered twelve Top 20 hits, the biggest being 2 Faced (#3), and earned herself several Brit Award nominations.
She married Liverpool and England football player Jamie Redknapp in the Caribbean on June 29, 1998. They have a son called Charley.
In 2001, after trying out a more grown up sound on her third LP Elbow Beach (named after the place where she got married), Louise was dropped by her record label and a best of album, Changing Faces, was released. This was followed by another best of collection from EMI (but with a slightly different tracklisting), Finest Moments, in 2002.
She has since completed a 2002 UK-wide tour, tried her hand at TV presenting (on CD:UK) and hit the UK Top 5 again with Pandora's Kiss in 2003.
In the July 2004 edition of FHM, she was named Sexiest Woman of the Decade.
