Basia

Real Name:
Barbara Trzetrzelewska
Profile:
Born: September 30, 1954 in Jaworzno, Poland.

Polish vocalist Basia Trzetrzelewska spent several years in the pop band Matt Bianco, an offshoot of Blue Rondo à la Turk, before launching a solo career in 1987. With the musical assistance of Matt Bianco's Danny White, she developed a subtle cocktail jazz-pop which was first showcased on her 1987 debut album Time And Tide. Supported by the singles New Day For You, Prime Time TV, Run For Cover and Time And Tide the record became a hit in Europe and America, where the album went platinum (more than 1 000 000 copies). Basia's second record, 1989's London Warsaw New York, was just as successful, but her third effort, 1994's The Sweetest Illusion, failed to find an audience. Clear Horizon - The Best Of ... followed in 1998 and proved to be her only release for several years, as the deaths of several close friends (including her mother) temporarily sapped Basia's drive to make music. Urged by her former bandmates Danny White and Mark Reilly to join the reunited Matt Bianco, however, she eventually returned to music in 2004 and issued Matt's Mood with the band. Basia then returned her focus to her solo career, releasing It's That Girl Again with White's help in early 2009.
