The vocalist worked on a raft of seminal recordings...

Tributes are pouring in for Manchester vocalist Denise Johnson.

The singer was a key fixture in the city's music community for more than 25 years, matching sterling session work with her own material.

A sought after vocalist, Denise Johnson's voice adorns Primal Scream's rave classic 'Don't Fight It, Feel It'.

Yet there's far more to her work than this - Denise entered the studio to grace recordings by Electronic, A Certain Ratio, and many, many more.

Sadly, news of her passing was confirmed yesterday afternoon (July 27th) by close friend and fellow vocalist Rowetta.

Here's just a few tributes.
