Whigfield biography

Producers : Davide Riva, A. Pignagnoli

Sannie Charlotte Carlson (the project name is a tribute to Mrs. Whigfield, her British piano teacher) was born on 11th of April 1970 in an Danish express train which next stop was Skælskør (this became her official birth place), Her father Ole is an engineer. Her parents moved a lot : she lived in Ghana, Ivory Coast, Algeria, Nigeria and made her studies in French schools. She also stayed from time to time at her grandma Ella's in Svebølle. Therefore she speaks danish, spanish, italian, english and french. Then her mum died as she was only 14 and she was sent to a boarding school in Seeland : this is where she met Mrs Whigfield. Apart from this, she did not really enjoy this time. Afterwards, she spent 6 months in a business school and realized that spending her days in an office was not really her thing. She changed for a fashion design school where she spent 3 years.

She began her musical career as a vocalist in the band where his brother was playing as guitarist. She also did some modelling. She likes swimming, dancing, music cinema, shopping, and italian cooking. She's been living in Bologne (Italy) for 3 years, after what she moved to Spain in order to follow her (now ex-) boyfriend, the rapper Paco Pil. She now lives 10 km in the North of Barcelona. She has 3 dogs named Beppe, Flipper and Horse.

Always with a different hair colour, Sannie has been appearing on charts and magazines since that Saturday Night became a hit all over Europe. After being welcomed very coldly by her future interpret, then by Italian dancefloors, Saturday Night became a hit in Spain in 1993, where it remained number one in the Charts for 3 months. This song owed her success to the DJs of Ibiza. Over 2 million copies of this song were sold. The producers team even got sued by a project which had released a similar record some years ago and asked for copyright. It was alleged that the track ripped off both Rub A Dub Dub by the Equals and Fog on the Tyne by Lindisfarne. Both claims were dismissed. Black Duck (another X-energy project) sampled Saturday Night in their single Whiggle In Line.

In her first live appearances, in order to expand her repertoire, Whigfield sung covers of Haddaway's What Is Love and Ace Of Base's All That She Wants. She became a very good friend of both ex-members of Cappella. As proof of her success in France, Whigfield's photo was featured on the cover of the very popular French compilation Dance Machine 5.

The follow-up singles Another Day and Think Of You (which is also her favourite song) entered both the top 10 in Germany, the Netherlands and in many other European countries (such as Sweden where it was released on the 8th of May 1995). Another Day drew accusations of plagiarism because the melody was very similar to the 1970 song In the Summertime by Mungo Jerry. This led to an out-of-court settlement being paid by the producers to Mungo Jerry, as they agreed that there was a similarity but maintained it was unintentional.

In April 1995, she planned to marry Paco Pil, but tabloid mention she split in July. Ballad Close To You was released in November. Videoclip was a tribute to Edward Hopper's paintings.

Then Whigfield's debut album, simply entitled Whigfield was released. During the summer of 1996, the song Sexy Eyes was released and entered the highest positions of the charts in Spain, Germany, Austria, Switzerland and in South America. Sexy Eyes even hit the #1 in Australia.

The same year, Whigfield released an album called Mega Mixes which included many brilliant mixes of her biggest hits so far.

After lots of shows to promote her first album, 'Whiggy' came back with a new single called Gimme Gimme which announced the forthcoming new album. It sounded just like the others, the kind that makes you want to stand up and shake your body. And it becaume a hit in Australia, Europe and South Africa.

At this time it was almost sure that, at least on the very first releases, Whigfield's real voice was Annerley Gordon, a vocalist who also worked on many eurodance projects with Davide Riva (such as Ally & Jo) and Mauro Farina. Annerly had contributed to some of the songwriting work, too.

1999 : Whigfield appeared on the album of Portuguese dance music group SantaMaria : she took part to the song Happy Maravilha '99.

A new single was released in 2000 : Doo Whop, which was a huge hit in Spain. After almost three years since her last album was released the Danish diva came back with a brand new album, entitled III. It contained 11 tracks and a megamix. The first track on this album is a cover of Be My Baby originally by Sixties (it originally appeared on the soundtrack of Dirty Dancing movie). This track was released as a single the previous year and became quite a popular tune. This time Whigfield decided to make an album with many diversfied dance tracks. You will find some hi-NRG oriented tunes such as Much More (next single to be released, becoming a smash-hit in Canada and Mexico) or Unbelievable, with an updated  sound and some interesting synth works. Makin' My Day has a style that could remind the Vengaboys. One of the most dynamic and  energetic songs in this album is unquestionably Waitin' For Saturday, a powerful Eurodance track. The album was closed by the Whigfield Megamix (with her previous hits Think of  You, Another Day, Saturday Night or Sexy Eyes) .

2002 : a live gig was planned in Germany in March but was finally cancelled. She released a new single entitled Gotta Getcha, released in 2 versions (the first CD acontained the album version, the second CD included remixes and a new version of Saturday Night). In July she took part to the Europride 2002 In Cologne. The new album, Whigfield IV, will be released on 22nd July 2002...

The next Whigfield single was a double-a-side including Amazing & Beautiful and the ballad My My. It was released in Germany in September 2002. It included many different music styles : UK Garage, 2-Step, R&B, House, Dance-techno and, of course, some tracks in her typical style.

2003 : following the "2003 remixes" trend, Whigfield released Saturday Night 2003. The remixes were done by the German producer team "Villa Productions". It finally entered the official German-DJ-Playlist and ranked #87. It was pretty much succesful in Denmark where, in July, the single hit Top 20, and even more in Czech Republic, where it reached # 3 in the Official Czech Dance Charts.

2004 : Whigfield's new single was released in April. It is said to be a great tune. It's on heavy rotation all around the world, let's hop it bring her back into the charts! A best of album entitled Waiting for Saturday - Her Greatest Hits will be released in Germany on the 26th of April. A compilation was released under ZYX music, including some of her greatest hits, especially recorded for fitness workout

2005 : Sannie Charlotte Carlson used the name "Naan" when writing the lyrics for two songs with the Benassi Bros. on their album ...Phobia (one of them was Rocket In The Sky, which was released as single). She also contributed to the songwriting on In-Grid's single Mama Mia, to Malomodo's song Come A Little Closer (songwriting and vocals), and to Favretto's song Yes U R.

2006 : The next Whigfield album will be a collection of remixed versions of her hits, chosen after a vote of her fans. In July, her hit single Saturday Night was re-released in Spain, featuring King Africa. It was included in the compilation Caribe 2006 mixing reggaeton and latin sound..

2007 : Sannie Carlson was quite busy with her songwriter carreer. She wrote a song called Porque, included on Pochill's album Nothing But The Hill, among other songs co-written by Sannie.

In October, Whigfield's new album All In One was released. In December, the first single from the new album was out : it was a new version of Think Of You, including remixes by SunLoverz, Gabry Ponte, F&A Factor, Mathieu Bouthier & Muttonheads and Favretto & Yanz.

2008 : in March, Whigfield was working on a new video, coming out in May. The title was kept secret. It could be a video for Think Of You 2007... or a brand new song. In May, the title was revealed, it was actually a cover of Jam & Spoon's Right In The Night. As she was staying in Ghana at her father's, she gave birth prematurely to her baby, who unfortunately did not survive.

2010 : Whigfield is back with a brand new single entitled No Doubt, a slow song for Christmas. She was working on her new album. She was featured on Pochill's songs By And By and Discipline on same-titled album.

2011 : Whigfield starred in Oral Tunerz' next single To Feel Alive. Her next single C'est Cool was released in June.

2012 : in March, Whigfield's next single was announced to be entitled Devil Called Love. Then in September, it was renamed to Love 4ever. Final title was 4ever. It was followed by a new album called W. In November, she released next single Jeg Kommer Hjem (I'm coming home). In december, W was released as physical CD, and an Extra Edition (with versions by the original arrangers for each song) followed. This year, she got married with her producer Larry Pignagnoli.

2013 : Whigfield released a new version of her hit Saturday Night, featuring German rapper Carlprit
