Imogen Heap's parents separated when she was 12. Her mother was an art therapist and her father was a construction rock retailer. At 13, she began to teach herself music and eventually learned how to play the guitar and drums.
Heap's first major break came in 1996. Her manager got her a gig at the Prince's Trust Concert at Hyde Park in London, England. Heap played four of her own songs in between sets by Eric Clapton and The Who.
Her career almost ended after her label Almo Sounds was sold to Universal. While working on her second solo album, Heap was given a deadline to deliver the rest of the songs. After handing over the tunes, Heap was told they "lacked hit potential" and she was dropped from the label. Heap started up a new duo called Frou Frou and decided to move on with new music.
