Artist / Kerri Ann
Irish girl Kerri Ann Keogh was born in 1977 and comes from Tallaght South Dublin. She was fairly well known in Ireland for a short period of time, and had a brief pop career which spanned 2 singles in 1998. She was managed by Louis Walsh, of Boyzone and Girls Aloud fame.
Her debut single was the salsa-tinged "Do You Love Me Boy?" (written by the same guy who wrote "Ooh Ahh...Just A Little Bit" for Gina G), and it reached an impressive #2 in Ireland, but it could only stall at #58 in the UK when it was released in August 1998. Her second single "Irreplaceable" went one better in her homeland and went all the way to #1 - but after being delayed a few times, the single was never released in the UK, though it did chart on import, reaching #163 in November 1998. Despite having hits in Ireland, Kerri Ann was dropped by her UK-based record company, and never got to release an album.
Irreplaceable was produced by Mike Stock and Matt Aitken. Kerri Ann also recorded a couple of other unreleased tracks with Stock/Aitken - "Better Than This, "That's For Sure" which went on to be recorded by Scooch and the intended follow up to Irreplaceable, I Can't Get You Outta My Mind.
