She first started her career at dancing at age nine when she performed in a ballet at the Opéra National de Paris, working with Roland Petit, then at contemporary dance with Carolyn Carlson and Pina Bausch, and finally at variety dance on television.
She then decided to begin a singer career and recorded two discs in 1965 that passed unnoticed. In 1984, Patti participated in the trio named 'Dacapo', and had her first solo hit in 1987/1988 with "Étienne". Labyrinthe, released a short time after, was also successful.
Her second album, entitled Nomades, was released in January 1990, the album was less successful than the previous.
In 1992, Patti released her third album, Gobe, which was critically well-received, but considered a commercial failure.
In 1995, her next album, Blonde, strongly marked a musical shift and a more electronic experimentation, with less commercial sounds and new collaborations with many artists including Étienne Daho (on the song "Blonde") and Françoise Hardy ("Un peu, beaucoup"). There were three singles from this album: "La Marquise", "Blonde" and "Amnésie". In addition, the British filmmaker Peter Greenaway chose "Blonde" for the soundtrack of his film The Pillow Book (1996).
The fifth album, Dernières Nouvelles, released in 2000, highlighted a painful and romance-drama ambiance, strongly tinged with loneliness. A DVD released in March 2002 completed the album. With much musical innovation, this DVD presents a large part of the album, containing choreographed performances and a false interview dealing with existential problems and the condition of the artist. The same year, Patti recorded a duet with Gonzales for the single entitled "Dans tes yeux".
Her grandmother, coming from Basque country, nicknamed her "Guesch. She added Patti for Patricia.
