Her music is a mixture of mainstream pop, disco and 1980s electronic influences. Ellis-Bextor began her career in 1997, with an indie band called theaudience. She sang the lead vocal in the band.
While she was a band member, readers of Melody Maker elected her to the Number 1 position among the 'most sexy people in rock'.In late 2000 as a major star alongside Italian DJ, producer Spiller. The 6'9 Venetian had just put together a disco house number, titled Groovejet (If This Ain't Love), and was looking for a female vocalist to add spice to the work.
Though very popular in the clubs as an instrumental, the track started selling like mad after Ellis Bextor strutted her stuff over its deep grooves. It was a number one hit on singles charts around the world.
Spiller and Ellis Bextor both starred in the now famous film clip to the track, in which the Londoner's eye-popping set of cheekbones vied for supremacy with the Venetian's imposing stature. A year on, Ellis Bextor was again making waves with the pop single Take Me Home. Thanks to that effort, she beat the likes of Five to the number one spot on the U.K. singles chart.
In their ongoing search for controversy, the British press even touted her as the main competitor to enormously popular Victoria Beckham, previously known as Posh Spice. That same year, Ellis Bextor served up another chart topper in the ultra-cool disco tune Murder on the Dancefloor.
