Paloma Faith – British singer and songwriter
Paloma Faith's full name is Paloma Faith Blomfield. She was born in London on 21 July 1981. Paloma has British and Spanish heritage. Even though her parents divorced when Paloma was just 2 years old, she has a close relationship with her paternal grandmother. For a long time, Paloma was telling everyone that she was born in 1985. However, her birth certificate unexpectedly appeared online and people found out the truth, which didn’t hinder the singer’s popularity.
Faith took dance classes since childhood. She attended Northern School of Contemporary Dance. Later Paloma studied art at Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. The young artist took on many different jobs to support herself. At one point, she even earned money as the street magician’s assistant.
Between 2007 and 2009, Paloma struggled to find a chance to show herself in the music industry. Finally, in 2009, she signed a contract with a label, Lateral Management. The same year the singer released her debut single “Stone Cold Sober”, which immediately climbed to the 17th spot of the UK Singles Chart. A little later, Paloma released one more single “New York”, which appeared on the 15th position of the same chart. The song also earned a silver certification in the UK.
