Ottawan Bio

Ottawan is a French Eurodisco duo, led by Jean Patrick.

They were fronted by lead singer Jean Patrick (Baptiste) (born 6 April 1954, Martinique) and Annette (born 1 November 1958), with Daniel Vangarde and Jean Kluger the main songwriters. They are best known for their two hit singles "D.I.S.C.O." and "Hands Up (Give Me Your Heart)". They also performed "Hello Rio", a song produced and written by Bobby Orlando, also known as Bobby O. He is more famous for founding The Fast (later to be known as Man 2 Man), Divine and The Flirts, and producing some early recordings with the Pet Shop Boys.

The band was originally founded by Kluger and Vangarde, the main producers of the Ottawan songs. In the United Kingdom they had two Top 10 UK Singles Chart hits. "D.I.S.C.O.", the act's debut single, reached number two in September 1980; "Hands Up (Give Me Your Heart)" peaked at number three nearly a year later.
