Cover text :
Francoise was born on January 17, 1944, in the 9th Arrondissement
of Paris. A strict upbringing ensured that she devoted a large amount
of time to her studies. She was a brilliant pupil, passing her two
baccalaureats with honours and then going on to take a degree course
In her spare time Francoise learned the guitar and began composing songs.
When she was 18, she went to an audition armed with enough of her own
songs to make an entire album. Jacques Wolfsohn, her present Artistic
Director, who had heard her sing earlier at the Golf Drouot, a Paris
beat club which has given many young singers their first chance,
signed her up on the spot.
From that moment the life of Francoise Hardy was transformed. She
abandoned her studies and embarked on a singing career. She was a
success almost immediately, but it was the TV programme in which she
sang her celebrated "Tous les garcons et les filles" which really
saw her firmly established on the ladder of success.
Amiable, natural, cultured and amusing, Francoise Hardy is all of these.
Add to this her unique talents as a songwriter and singer and it is
easy to see why she has become France's top international girl singer,
sought after by film producers all over the world.
