This is a discography of Scottish recording artist Shirley Manson, who has performed as the lead singer of American rock band Garbage since 1994. Before then, she was a backing vocalist and keyboard player for Goodbye Mr Mackenzie from 1981 to 1992. The band had one UK Top 40 single, "The Rattler". Manson was then signed as a solo artist, performing under the name Angelfish with some members of Goodbye Mr Mackenzie, releasing Angelfish in the early 1990s.

A few months into Garbage's hiatus, Manson began writing a solo record, working with musician Paul Buchanan,[1] producer Greg Kurstin,[2] and film composer David Arnold.[3] In 2007, Manson collaborated with Rivers Cuomo of Weezer, who at that point had never co-written material with anyone.[4] Manson presented some of her work to Geffen Records in 2008, who found it "too noir", prompting Manson and Geffen to mutually terminate her contract.[5] Manson continued to write material while without a record deal and was in talks with David Byrne and Ray Davies about a potential collaboration.[6] Manson posted three demos on her Facebook profile, written by her and Kurstin, titled "In the Snow",[2] "Pretty Horses"[7] and "Lighten Up".[8]

"I had taken some of my solo music into the record label. They didn't really care for the direction I was moving in and I found it really disheartening. They wanted a pop hit, which I understand in terms of making money. I get that. But what they were going to ask of me was something I wasn't prepared to deliver and I felt kind of trapped. I just stopped writing. I just stopped. It was stifling."

Shirley Manson[5]

Manson also worked with a number of artists outside of her solo project, reciting a verse of a long poem for a Chris Connelly album,[9] co-writing and recording a duet with Eric Avery for his solo debut,[10] recording with Debbie Harry[11] and performing backing vocals on a Gavin Rossdale track.[12] Although not recording material with them, Manson also performed on-stage with The Pretenders, Iggy Pop, Incubus and Kings of Leon in Atlantic City,[13] with Gwen Stefani[14] and a further twice with No Doubt[15] in Universal City. Manson also performed in an uncredited role as a dominatrix in the music video for She Wants Revenge's single "These Things".[16]
