Everything but the Girl Biography
Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt first emerged as pioneers in the lite-jazz music scene in the early 1980's. They continued to refine their jazz versus electronica sound through eight studio albums until they gained larger exposure in 1994 through a collaboration with Massive Attack on "Protection" and their hit album "Amplified Heart." The Todd Terry remix of "Missing" was a smash hit in 1995 and continues to be remixed and played to this day. After the success of "Missing", the duo took their music in a more beat-oriented and clubbier direction, with Tracey lending her vocals as guest singer on several club tracks by Deep Dish and others. Their latest musical outing was a volume in the DMC "Back To Mine" series in late 2001. The duo got their name from a furniture store ad which proclaimed, "For your bedroom needs, we have everything but the girl."
