Guesch Patti, whose real name is Patricia Porasse, is a French singer who entered her artistic career at the age of 9 as a Petit Rat at the Paris Opera.
She was hired there six years later at the age of 15 by Roland Petit. Classical fillière that she will abandon in favor of contemporary dance, arriving at the age of 23.
And it was in 1987 that we seriously heard about her, not for the dance, but as a singer. Singer whose notoriety will explode overnight thanks to 1 title : the enormous "Etienne". Title that will be a real hit in France but also abroad. So much so that it will sell 1.5 million copies !
New success a year later in 1988 with the release of the single "Let be must the queen". The album "Labyrinth" was released immediately and met the same fate.
In 1990 the album "Nomades" was released from which "L’homme au tablier vert", "Comment dire" and "Nomades" were taken. Album with less success.
Two years later in 1992, the album "Gobe" was released, which despite its obvious quality did not find its audience. The album "Blondes" which came out in 1995 did not do much better despite its jazz rock inspirations and prestigious collaborations with Mathieu Chédid, Etienne Daho and other Françoise Hardy.
But this mythical intro will be remembered for a long time: "Etienne, Etienne, Oh, tiens le bien ! "

1984 ... it starts strong, it starts rock, it will pulse, to say the least !
1987 ... and that for pulsating, it pulses ! In one title, she fits One Shot into the musical legend of the 80s. Here she surely signs one of the biggest dance hits of the decade on the French side, just that. HU-GE !
1988 ... an equally punchy sequel ! Miss 100,000 volts at the height of its possibilities. She brings with her a wind of madness that was missing in the French musical landscape, that's clear !
1988 ... a sequel that will prove to be more difficult to negotiate than expected. Not easy to repeat the feat. After the euphoria and the mega hits, doubt sets in ...
1988 ... and yet the quality is there, it is undeniable. But the supercharged Patricia can no longer create the event ...
1990 ... 2 years have passed. But the situation is still the same and the change of decade will not be enough to create a salutary electroshock for the public !
1990 ... and yet, she does everything she can to shake it up to raise the bar. Crazy wishes, her stage performance is enough to impress ...
1990 ... no more delusions, no more excesses, we find a Patricia in Intimist mode. And my faith, it also works ...
1992 ... hunt the natural, it comes back at a gallop. This sudden calm could not last, it was obvious. Even more crazy than before !
1992 ... but what is clear is that she dares ! There, where most of the artists in her category play it pre-formatted, Patricia, she, disturbs and upsets. Not even afraid !
1995 ... irreparably wacky ! His trademark forever. Well, there, she pushes the cap a little far as they say. There are experimental and experimental ...
1996 ... we finish smoothly, what could be better ! But as always, a delirium...wacky ! We will not remake her again, that's clear !
