b. 1939, Warrington, Lancashire, England, d. 31 December 2000, England. Savage sang as a child at venues in and around her home town, and in the early 50s enjoyed moderate success with records and on television, appearing in shows such as Easy To Remember. She sang some duets with Michael Holliday and sang in the heats of the 1957 UK entry for the Eurovision Song Contest. Savage made several well-received solo records in the late 50s and early 60s: "Candlelight"/"The Wee Small Hours Of The Morning", "Every Day"/"All I Need", "Maybe This Year"/"Beautiful Love", "My Head's In De Barrel"/"Five Oranges, Four Apples", "Tell Me, Tell Me, Tell Me That You Love Me"/"Please", "Stars Shine In Your Eyes"/"A Star Is Born", "A Tear Fell"/"Something Old, Something New", "Never Leave Me"/"Don't Ever Go (I Need You)", and "Evermore"/"I'll Be There". Her 1956 version of "Arrivederci Darling" was briefly in the UK Top 20.

Savage had a bit part in the film It's Great To Be Young (1956), for which she also dubbed the vocal for the song "You Are My First Love", mimed on the screen by Dorothy Bromiley. Savage toured military bases with a CSE show but from the mid-60s onwards her career slipped away. The first of Savage's four marriages was to Terry Dene, the pop singer.
