Elkie Brooks was born in Salford, England and grew up in Prestwich. She attended North Salford Secondary Modern School. A professional singer since she was fifteen, Elkie Brooks' debut, a cover of Etta James' "Something's Got A Hold On Me" was released on Decca in 1964. She spent most of the 1960s on Britain's jazz scene, then met husband Pete Gage and joined the short-lived fusioneers Dada before forming Vinegar Joe with Gage and Robert Palmer. After three albums, they split up in 1974, and Elkie and Robert both went solo. After a spell as backing singer with the American southern boogie band Wet Willie, she returned to England. Her commercially unsuccessful Rich Man's Woman (1975) came before a run of sixteen UK hit albums in twenty-five years, starting with Two Days Away (1977) and the hits "Pearl's A Singer", "Sunshine After The Rain" and "Lilac Wine", She also had a hit in 1977 with the Cat Stevens duet "(Remember the Days of the) Old Schoolyard".
