French singer, musician, and song writer.
She had a very androgynous appearance, and a deep voice, and Jean Cocteau got her work singing in a cabaret. In 1963, through sheer talent and her intense persona, she joined the roster of Pathé Records. She was hailed (as many were) as the new Édith Piaf, and also compared with Barbara. Charles Dumont, who wrote many of Piaf's hits, also began writing songs for her. Composer Michel Breuzard also wrote music for her, and in 1966 she recorded several EP's and her first album. She appeared many times on television to sing her songs.
She died in Paris, France, on 18 January 1968 at the age of 26 from an excess of alcohol and drugs.
