Alesha Anjanette Dixon (born 7 October 1978, in Welwyn Garden City, Hertfordshire, England) is an English singer and dancer, and former member of girl band Mis-Teeq. Dixon’s career began in 1999, when she met Sabrina Washington as they joined Dance Attic (a popular dance class school in West London), and the both of them became a duo. In 2000, when both Dixon and Washington were auditioning, they met with Su-Elise Nash, and formed a trio. Soon, they were signed to Telstar Records with the addition of a new member, Zena McNally, and they became the popular Garage/R&B girl band, Mis-Teeq. However, right after the release of their debut single "Why?", Zena McNally had left the band to pursue her own solo career that has yet to succeed. They went on as just a trio, and released their debut album.

In 2001, they released their first album, Lickin’ On Both Sides featuring hits such as All I Want, One Night Stand, B With Me and Roll On / This Is How We Do It. In 2003, they released their second album, Eye Candy featuring hits such as Scandalous (a song that they are most famous for), Can’t Get It Back and Style. Following the two albums, they toured the United States in 2004 and released their American debut album Mis-Teeq, a compilation of the two albums released in Europe and Asia. At the same time, Dixon also appeared as a dancer in the video for N*E*R*D’s single She Wants To Move, from their second album Fly or Die. In 2005, Mis-Teeq made a decision to separate, each to pursue a solo career.

They released Greatest Hits that contained all of the hits they released on both audio and video. The last song they recorded together was “Shoo Shoo Baby”, a song that was released for the Disney animated film Valiant. The same year Alesha married her long-time fiancé, rapper Michael Harvey Jr. (aka MC Harvey from So Solid Crew). Her debut album, Fired Up, was released in February 2008 exclusively in Japan after a long delay due to the low charting positions of the first two singles “Lipstick” (UK #14) and especially “Knockdown” (UK #45).

Fired Up features tracks written by Dixon and collaborators including Richard X, Xenomania, Johnny Douglas, Estelle, and Paul Eppe. The album peaked at #14 at the Oricon International Album Chart. In 2008 Alesha signed a four-album contract with Asylum Records. Her new album, The Alesha Show, is slated for release in the UK on November 17th 2008 and in Ireland on November 14th, along with the single "The Boy Does Nothing" on November 10th 2008 in the UK and November 7th 2008 in Ireland.
