Patti Page Biography

Better known as “The Singing Rage, Miss Patti Page,” Clara Ann Fowler was born November 8, 1927 in Tulsa, Oklahoma. She was one of eight sisters with ten siblings in all. Clara started singing in church and for the local radio as a member of The Fowler Sisters. However, her start as a country singer happened by accident. While in high school, she worked after school in the art department of KTUL radio. Here, a station executive recruited her as the host for the “Meet Patti Page Show” and her career as a singer had officially begun.

She legally adopted the stage name when Jack Rael, who became her manager for the next 50 years, lured her from Tulsa. Her first hit was "Confess," which featured the overdubbing technique for the first time in the recording industry. "With My Eyes Wide Open I’m Dreaming" was Patti’s first single to sell over a million copies. Then in the 50’s she released "All My Love" followed by "Tennessee Waltz," which held the Number One position for thirteen weeks. It is the most sold record by a female artist in recording history. This hit was responsible for orbiting Patti Page into superstardom.

Billboard and Cashbox magazines, and American Bandstand each honored her in 1957 as America’s favorite female vocalist. Throughout the decade, she appeared on every major talk show including Ed Sullivan.

She adopted two children during her marriage in the 70’s. Patti remarried and lives with her grandchildren and her husband in their California and New Hampshire homes. She still performs concerts and has a weekly radio show. She and her husband, Jerry Filiciotto, also produce Patti Page Pure Maple Syrup. During her career she has been awarded a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame as well as the Country Music Walk of Fame in Nashville. She was also inducted into the Oklahoma Music Hall of Fame along with Merle Haggard and Woody Guthrie.
