Welcome to the Patti Sommers website

• Patti Sommers • Patti and The Patettes • Pattie Lane • Claire •

Please note that I have no connection with anyone else who may have a similar name. This is the ONLY website for Keighley-born vocalist and actress Patti Sommers.

Hi, and welcome to my very own brand new website!

I'm thrilled to finally have this opportunity to share my career with anyone who's interested, whether they know me as Claire, Pattie Lane, Patti and The Patettes, Patti Sommers, or indeed my married name of Patti Quinsee.

The inspiration to start this website came from the interest that people on the internet were suddenly showing in me!

My husband went onto Google a couple of weeks ago and just for fun put one of my singles into the search bar. We were both amazed to find it on YouTube!  A young lady by the name of Kerith Louisa Williams-Catton from Brisbane collects Northern Soul and she not only had "Bill" by Patti and the Patettes but had a second single of mine called "Summer Heartbreak".  Both of these tracks can be found in the Media section of this website.

Following a bit more Googling I discovered that one of my singles was also on two compilation albums.

Kerith bought her singles on the Gold Coast in Australia and both she and others have been looking for information on Patti and the Patettes to no avail. I wrote and thanked her for posting my singles but in turn she thanked me for my music which she said she thoroughly enjoys. The fact that we are in contact with one another due to my music makes it even more special to me.

So... I got myself onto Facebook and YouTube and then decided to make this website.  I do hope you enjoy it.

I'm still building this site but will be adding more videos, music tracks, photos and musings as time progresses, so please keep checking back, and don't forget to let me know what you'd like to see or hear by contacting me through the 'Contact' button up top.

Lots of love,
Patti xx
