Short biography
Patti Smith is an American singer-songwriter and poet. She was influential in the birth of punk rock with her 1975 debut album "Horses". Called "Godmother of Punk" she integrated the beat poetry performance style with garage rock. Her allusions introduced American teens to 19th century French poetry, while her "unladylike" language defied the disco era. Smith is most widely known for the song "Because the Night", which was co-written with Bruce Springsteen and reached number 13 on Billboard Hot 100 chart.
