Annie Philippe was born in the Parisian district of Ménilmontant on the 17th of December 1946. After leaving school, Annie became a DJ in the Twenty One club, off the Champs Élysées, where she met Paul Mauriat, a famous musical arranger and orchestra leader who had worked with many other famous Yé-yé artists before her. Mr. Mauriat took a chance on Annie Philippe and found that he was pleasantly surprised.
Annie impressed him enough for him to help her land a recording contract with the French music label Rivièra Records, and she released her first four-track EP in 1964. Though it flopped, she was given a second chance and released a version of the Supreme's Baby love (with the same title) which sold quite well. She also toured for several seasons, notably with Jacques Dutronc and Claude François.
After the Sixties had passed Annie found herself taking a bit of a hiatus from the music Industry. Annie did not resurface until a few decades later, besides doing a few acting jobs here and there. However, once the Baby Boomer generation got older the nostalgia for Sixties pop music rose and she began a new music career almost in the same place as where she had left off. Today she still regularly preforms in the evenings and released a new single last June of this year entitled "Verses of Love."
