Described by Coldplay’s Chris Martin as “the best singer in France”, Bruel has already had a legendary career. Equally committed to both music and acting, he was offered his first move role in “Le Coup de Sirocco” in 1979 and his nearly fifty films, not to mention his many theatrical performances, includes a performance in Sophie Lellouche’s first movie, “Paris-Manhattan” (2012), with Woody Allen appearing as himself, and his recent role alongside Emmanuelle Béart in Cécile Telerman’s movie “Les Yeux Jaunes des Crocodiles” (The Yellow Eyes of Crocodiles).
In 1983 he began his rise to the top of the music world with the song “Marre de cette Nana” (Sick of that Girl), which became a smash hit. In 1989, his first album, Alors Regarde (So Look), featured a string of classics, including “Casser la Voix” (Break my Voice) and “LaPlace des Grands Hommes”(Place of the Great), and he began to perform for packed crowds in increasingly large venues. The 1994 release of his self-titled second record confirmed his talents as a highly popular singer-songwriter. His first two albums sold more than four million copies followed by a major tour immortalized on a live album released in 1995.
The much-loved musician’s success has continued over the years with the 2002 release of Entre Deux, a double CD of classic songs inspired by the period between the two World Wars, featuring duets with Charles Aznavour, Jean-Louis Aubert, Jean-Jacques Goldman, Alain Souchon and Renaud, among others, which sold two million copies. Des Souvenirs Devant (Memories Ahead), was released in March 2006 and went to number one in both the French and Belgium pop charts, and went three times platinum, as did his 2013 seventh studio record Lequel De Nous, following a six year musical hiatus in which he returned to movies.
