Minnie Driver

With the 2004 release of her debut LP, Everything I've Got in My Pocket, Minnie Driver became the latest feature film star to pursue a career as a pop singer. Born Amelia Driver in London on January 31, 1970, she was raised in Barbados until the age of seven, when her parents split and sent her to boarding school in Hampshire, England. Encouraged to pursue an acting career by her mother, former model Gaynor Churchward, Driver later earned a degree in drama from the Webber-Douglas Academy of Dramatic Art. In 1990, she made her professional debut in the telefilm God on the Rocks, followed by appearances on series including The House of Eliott and Lovejoy. At the same time she also sang with the jazz group Puff, Rocks and Brown, earning a development deal with Island Records; Driver nevertheless back-burnered her musical aspirations when in 1995 she was cast to star in the motion picture Circle of Friends, gaining 25 pounds to portray the film's central character, Irish schoolgirl Benny Hogan. Fearing typecasting, she quickly shed the weight and by year's end resurfaced as a sultry lounge singer in the James Bond franchise entry GoldenEye. From there Driver became a fixture in American independent productions, appearing in a series of acclaimed projects including Big Night and Grosse Pointe Blank. With her work in 1997's Good Will Hunting, the actress earned her first Academy Award nomination. She also became a staple of tabloid headlines when her high-profile romance with co-star Matt Damon came to an abrupt and messy halt. In the years to follow, it often seemed that Driver earned more attention for her offscreen romantic pursuits than her acting career. Although features including 1999's An Ideal Husband and 2000's Return to Me fared poorly at the box office, she nevertheless made news in 2001 when her six-month engagement to actor Josh Brolin collapsed, reportedly due to the meddling of Brolin's mother-in-law, Barbra Streisand. A recurring guest role on the NBC television sitcom Will and Grace followed two years later, and in 2004 Driver earned the coveted role of Carlotta in the long-planned feature adaptation of the Andrew Lloyd Webber musical The Phantom of the Opera. Throughout her Hollywood ascent Driver continued writing songs, over time turning away from jazz to a rootsy folk-pop approach inspired by artists including Bruce Springsteen and Neil Young. During a break from acting she resumed her live music career and eventually signed to the Zoe/Rounder label, issuing her debut LP, Everything I've Got in My Pocket, to unexpectedly positive reviews in late 2004. In 2007 Driver returned with her second album, Seastories, recorded in both Los Angeles and New York, with some help from Ryan Adams and his band the Cardinals, and even backing vocals on one track from Liz Phair. ~ Jason Ankeny, Rovi

I am loving Minnie's beautiful voice; I heard the same song 3 different times. Each time, I had to look to see who the singer was. it was Minnie. After the 3rd time, I figured I'd better buy the cd because the music was calling to me. She has the kind of voice that just makes you need to listen! it's beautiful, haunting, whatever you want to call it - she's GREAT! She's the kind of singer I would love to be. Just
..loving it.. stunning lady..am in Love..

Really nice

Wouldn't Barbara Streisand be Josh Brolin's step mother (vs. mother-in-la w ) ?
When I first heard her first album - very impressed and have to agree is under-rated. Can't say I can always feel when an artist sings --but she is one of few that I can... in my opinion when she sings sounds true and earthy -awesome. Made me give her a chance as an actor -not to be judgy but sure enjoy her as an actor much MORE after 2004 (when her first album came out). Cheers Minnie!

Minnie Driver is a most delightfully down to earth beautiful woman. I am so privileged to have met her in person. She is a tiny, petit little beauty. She and her amazing Mom, Gaynor, shared their Christmas dinner with my husband and I a decade ago.... and they didn`t have to. They are always in my prayers...:- ) ) )

Just curious, in her bio it refers to Josh Brolin's "mother in law", Barbra Streisand. She's married to his father, that makes her his step mother, not mother in law, right?

The best girl in town.
A magical thing happens when a woman sings......

Since "Everything I've Got in My Pocket" I've loved her! Glad she's still singing - I think she's terrifically talented and perhaps underrated!

Jury is still out, but intrest is still pending I will need to hear more before I can form a true opinion...

I am very surprised. Makes me like her more.
A triple threat! Nicely done. Now how about showing more skin in your flicks.
Interesting! I didn't know she sings...
I've never liked Minnie Driver but this is a really nice version of Hungry Heart. Of course, I've always loved the original.
I'm impressed.
A multi-talent !
