When Joan Armatrading’s mother gave her a beat-up guitar from a pawn shop at age 14, little did she know what would happen next. 19 studio albums later Armatrading is a much loved UK-based singer-songwriter and three-time Grammy Award nominee. Armatrading became the first Black British female singer/songwriter to enjoy international success helped along by eight appearances on the John Peel show between 1972 and 1976. After five years of studying Armatrading graduated in 2001 from a BA degree in history from the Open University. She continues to make television appearances and produce new music.
