Susan Ann Sulley (formerly known as Susanne Sulley and Susan Ann Gayle) (born 22 March 1963) is an English singer best known as one of the two female vocalists of the synthpop group The Human League.

Born and raised in Sheffield, England, as a schoolgirl in 1980 Sulley (aged 17) and her friend Joanne Catherall were "discovered" in the Crazy Daisy Nightclub in Sheffield by Philip Oakey, the lead singer and a founding member of The Human League. The pair were invited to join the new line-up, initially as dancers and incidental vocalists (and, as Oakey puts it, "to provide some glamour") for a European tour. They soon were asked to provide full vocals by Oakey as an experiment. The girls' distinctive vocals rapidly became a signature of the new Human League. Changing the band's style, its appeal to the mainstream public and subsequent commercial success dramatically.

Recruited into The Human League at 17 years old, now in her late forties she is a joint business partner in the band which is still recording and performing to this day. The Human League has dominated Sulley's life over the past three decades, she has been a pop star all her adult life and has never had any other full time job.|}
