Sarstedt Peter Bio

Peter Eardley Sarstedt (born 10 December 1941) is an Anglo-Indian singer-songwriter and multi-instrumentalist who has recorded a number of well-known and successful albums and singles since the 1960s.

Sarstedt was born in Delhi, India, where his parents were civil servants in the British administration. He attended Victoria Boys' School in Kurseong, in the Darjeeling district of West Bengal. His family returned to England in 1954. He is the younger brother of the 1960s pop star Eden Kane for whom he briefly played bass and the elder brother of pop singer Clive Sarstedt. He is best known for his 1969, UK number one hit, "Where Do You Go To (My Lovely)?", a portrait of a poor-born girl who becomes a member of the European jet-set. Set to a faux European waltz tune, it reached the top chart position in 14 countries and was a minor hit in the U.S. The song was awarded the 1969 Ivor Novello Award (together with David Bowie's "Space Oddity"). Other Sarstedt songs include "Beirut", "Take Off Your Clothes", "I Am a Cathedral" and "Frozen Orange Juice" (UK #10 in 1969).
