Limerick attended the London Contemporary School of Dance and switched to a music career, first as a backing vocalist, in the 1980s. Her work appeared on #TheStyleCouncil's album #OurFavouriteShop (1985). In 1989 she made a brief appearance as an African sorceress in Bob Rafelson's film, Mountains of the Moon. She has also contributed to #ThisMortalCoil, singing on two of its albums: Filigree & Shadow (1986) and Blood (1991). Another 4AD related contribution found her singing on the Pieter Nooten & Michael Brook album Sleeps with the Fishes (1987) on the song "Equal Ways." She appeared on #PeterMurphy's album Holy Smoke and released her own first album in 1992.
Limerick is best known for her 1990s club anthems, her most successful and best known track being "Where Love Lives," her only US release, which was originally a club success in 1991, and a UK Singles Chart #9 smash when remixed in 1996.
Her 1992 hit "Make it On My Own," reached #16 in the UK chart. These tracks were included on the album And Still I Rise, which was also released in 1992. Three further albums were released throughout the 1990s; With a Twist, Club Classics, and Spirit Rising. The single "Put Your Faith in Me" came out in 1997. "Where Love Lives" has made three separate appearances in the U.S. Hot Dance Club Play chart in 1991 (#3), 1996 (#4) and 2003 (#16). None of her albums were released in the US. Limerick was the featured vocalist on the 1995 #JamesTaylorQuartet album In the Hand of the Inevitable, on the album's three solo vocal tracks. The tracks included the single "Love Will Keep Us Together" and the album remains the #AcidJazz label's biggest selling album.
Limerick has worked with many famous artists and songwriters such as #GeorgeMichael, #CourtneyPine and #LamontDozier. In 1993 she sang backing vocals on #MPeople's song "Melody of Life" from the album Elegant Slumming. She appears in the British movie Collusion as the jazz singer and she is also notable as one of the (uncredited) singers heard performing the closing title song on each episode of Blackadder the Third.
