British pop duo Appleton comprises ex-All Saints Canadian natives Natalie Appleton (born Natalie Jane Appleton-Howlett in 1973) and Nicole Appleton (born Nicole Maria Appleton in 1974).
The two sisters started working on their own project after the London-based girl group All Saints disbanded in February, 2001. Appleton debuted in September, 2002 with the release of the chart-topping single "Fantasy," composed by Gareth Young followed by their debut album called Aloud. The next spring, the ladies were back on the charts with "Don't Worry." ~ Drago Bonacich
