American singer, songwriter, and fashion designer Gwen Renée Stefani was born on October 3rd, 1969 in Fullerton, California, to parents Dennis and Patti. Her parents introduced her to the music of Bob Dylan and Emmylou Harris, while her older brother Eric introduced her to 2 tone ska music and bands like Madness and The Selecter. It was Eric who was responsible for her first steps in the music industry, by inviting her to sing in his band No Doubt in 1986.
In 1991 the band was signed by Interscope Records, but their ska sound didn’t prove very popular in the face of rising grunge. It took them few tries but eventually the album Tragic Kingdom and especially hit Don’t Speak brought them fame in 1996. She spent next two and a half years touring with the band. Their 2001 album, Rock Steady, brought them two Grammy awards for songs Hey Baby and Underneath It All. Gwen got another Grammy next year for her collaboration with Eve in Let Me Blow Ya Mind.
During that time, Gwen dated bandmate Tony Kanal. Their relationship was often a rocky one and threatened to tear No Doubt apart. Kanal broke up with her and the breakup inspired several songs on Tragic Kingdom, including Don’t Speak.
She left No Doubt in 2004 and pursued a solo career. Stefani released her first solo album Love. Angel. Music. Baby. and also made her acting debut in movie Aviator, directed by Martin Scorsese in the same year.
In 2009 Gwen Stefanie rejoined No Doubt, and the band released their sixth album Push and Shove. She is due to start her 25-day appearance in Zappos Theater in Las Vegas in July 2018.
