Desireless (real name Claudie Fritsch-Mentrop) was born on Christmas Day, December 25, 1952 in Paris, France. After a brief career as a fashion designer and several trips to India (1980), she finds her way into singing. She meets producer Jean-Michel Rivat in 1984 and they begin to work together. In 1985, Claudie meets François Tabah (popular French songwriter). They will live together 18 years. In 1989, after the release of a first single "Chercher L'Amour Fou" and "Qui Peut Savoir ?" as "Air" (not to confuse with the later Electro act Air), the release of "Voyage, Voyage" as Desireless is determinant. The song reach high positions on European charts (even in Russia) and is an instant club hit. In 1989, Desireless releases her first album François, based upon the name of her lover. The birth of Claudie's daughter the following year forces her to leave show business for a while. Her second album I Love You is released in 1994. This time, Claudie write many of the tracks and many styles are explored. Since then, she came back to a much personal approach of music and got out of the big business circuit. She still performs and sing along with many collaborators, her styles ranging from Electronica to Bossa Nova and acoustic.
