Ann Nanton met Kevin Saunderson when she went to join her older sister Judy in London in 1987. (Judy was already a session singer). Soon afterward, she married him and moved to the US, appearing on several of his recordings as a vocalist. She also recorded under the aliases Surreal and Karen Joy, and was lead vocalist of dance group Kaos. She also worked with Inner City, her husband's band.
One of Saunderson's most famous contributions to Inner City was its 1992 hit, "Pennies From Heaven." The late 1990s were rather inactive, and it was only in 2000 that Saunderson began to record with new acts. In the early 2000s, she worked with the American techno band Octave One. She provided guest vocals on two of its single releases, "Blackwater" and "Somedays." All of these projects were large club hits and had great critical success, especially the former. Saunderson was also featured on tracks on Octave One's debut album. Additionally, she provided vocals for singles by Slam ("Lie to Me" (2004)), Dave Lee ("You're Not Alone" (2006)), and, more recently, Notenshun ("Move a Little Closer" (2007)).
