Sweet Female Attitude began life in 1996 when music manager Mike Powell, artist and DJ Shine MC and the seventeen year old Leanne Brown began writing music together. Collectively they developed a group consisting of three singers including Leanne Brown, Sarah Bridgewood and Charlene Morrison who would later leave the group in 1997. In 1998 Leanne and Sarah were joined by Shine MC and they renamed themselves to Trinity Way.
In early 1999 Shine MC decided to return to his role as a songwriter leaving Leanne and Sarah to front the group. They renamed themselves as Sweet Female Attitude and continued to record and promote their tracks, approaching various record labels up and down the UK. Sarah would also leave the group that same year and Leanne was asked to either front the group alone or find a second singer which led to her holding auditions along with Mike Powell in Manchester. After a series of auditions they came across the singer and musician Catherine Cassidy who would join the group and together with Leanne, would go onto record the album ‘In Person’ in 2000.
