Austin was born in 1950 to famous jazz trombonist Gordon Austin. Her father’s connections in the music industry meant that even from a very young age, she was associated with some of the biggest names in the business. Legendary artists Dinah Washington and Quincy Jones became her Godparents while Sammy Davis, Jr also had a big influence in her life and latter career. These people developed the talent in Austin and from the age of five, she started singing professionally and even signed a contract with RCA Records.
Her early entry into the industry helped Austin make many connections and gave her the opportunity to work with other established artists. She started singing back up and featured in songs by artists like Cat Stevens, James Brown, Bette Midler, Paul Simon, Roberta Flack and Diana Ross as well as countless others. She also started singing jingles in advertisements and came to be known as the “Queen of The Jingles” at one point before she moved to professional singing.
Patti earned invaluable experience while working the music circuit at the time and in 1976 realized that it was time for a solo album. She released “End of a Rainbow” which made it to number thirty one on the US Jazz music charts and became a minor success. Three more albums followed in the form of “Havana Candy” in 1977, “Live at the Bottom Line” a live album in 1979 and “Body Language” in 1980.

She had found reasonable success in jazz circles but Every Home Should Have One propelled her to nationwide fame. Her debut single became her first to get on the Billboard charts, at number sixty two, while her second single "Baby, Come to Me," featuring James Ingram, surpassed all expectations and made it to the top of the Billboard charts.
