The R&B singer Patti Austin was born in 1950 in Harlem, New York but grew up on Long Island. As a child, Patti was inspired by her father, who was a jazz musician, and so it was no surprise that even as a young child she expressed interest in following in his footsteps. But while it’s not unheard of for young children to enter the world of entertainment, Patti was a unique exception; she made her debut at the Apollo Theater when she was only four years old and by the time she was five she’d garnered the attention of Quincy Jones and RCA Records.
After signing with the label, Austin began a life-long career as a session and backup singer, eventually culminating in a solo career in the 1980’s which spawned more than twenty R&B hits. Patti’s debut began with the album End of a Rainbow in 1976, but it was the album Every Home Should Have On that put her on the map in 1981. Additional hit R&B and Jazz albums from Patti Austin include: The Real Me (1988), Love is Gonna Getcha (1990), The Secret Place (1994), For Ella (2002), and Avant Gershwin (2007), which earned her a Grammy for Best Jazz Vocal album.
But it was her duets with James Ingram, most notably “Baby, Come to Me” and “How Do You Keep the Music Playing?,” that made Patti Austin’s voice highly recognizable to an entire generation. Patti continues to perform and record, and was recently featured in the hit documentary film, Twenty Feet From Stardom. Her fans were also delighted to hear recently that she is currently working on a collaborative duet album with – of course – James Ingram. The album is scheduled for release in 2015.
