    Biography

    Benjamin Gérard Biolay is a French actor, multi-instrumentalist & singer-songwriter, born on January 20, 1973 in Villefranche-sur-Saône, France. He grew up in a musical universe (his father was an amateur clarinettist) & was interested. He played violin & tuba in a symphonic orchestra. Then, at 17, he changed & founded a pop music band.
    In 1992, Benjamin made his first demos thanks to one of Liane Foly's lyricists, but they stayed in maquettes. After touring with many bands, Benjamin released his first single "La Révolution" in 1996 & "Le Jour Viendra" the following year, but none of them got successful. In 2001, Benjamin released his first album Rose Kennedy & became one of the most talented songwriters. In May 2002, he married actress Chiara Mastroianni (daughter of Catherine Deneuve & Marcello Mastroianni) & in April 2003, their daughter Anna was born. In 2003, Benjamin wrote songs for some French artists & released his second album Négatif. After a soundtrack & the duet-album Home with his wife in 2004, he came back in 2005 with his autobiographical album À L'Origine, sometimes heavy, sometimes crude but still beautiful. In September 2007, Benjamin released Trash Yéyé, another beautiful album. In April 2009, he left Virgin & signed to Naïve, followed by his double album La Superbe.
    On October 10, 2012, French Culture Minister Aurélie Filippetti decorated Benjamin "Officier des Arts et des Lettres".
