Susan Janet Ballion (born May 27, 1957), known professionally as Siouxsie Sioux, is an English singer, songwriter, musician and record producer. She came to prominence as the leader and main lyricist of the rock band Siouxsie and the Banshees, who were active from 1976 to 1996. They released 11 studio albums, and had several UK Top 20 singles including “Hong Kong Garden,” “Happy House” and “Peek-a-Boo,” plus a US Top 25 single in the Billboard Hot 100, with “Kiss Them for Me.”

Siouxsie also formed a second group, the Creatures, in 1981. With the Creatures, she released four studio albums and singles such as “Right Now.” After disbanding the Creatures in the mid-2000s, she has continued as a solo artist, using just the name Siouxsie, and released the album Mantaray to critical acclaim in 2007.

AllMusic named Siouxsie as “one of the most influential British singers of the rock era.” Her songs have been covered by Jeff Buckley (“Killing Time”), Tricky (“Tattoo”) and LCD Soundsystem (“Slowdive”) and sampled by Massive Attack (“Metal Postcard”) and the Weeknd (“Happy House”).
