Biography

Calogero Joseph Salvatore Maurici (born on July 30, 1971), who goes by the stage name of Calogero, is a French singer-songwriter of Sicilian descent, mostly known for being the lead singer of French pop rock band Les Charts. A precocious talent, Maurici showed an aptitude for music from a very early age, learning how to play flute, piano, and bass when he was just 6 years old. In 1986, he formed Les Charts with brother Gioacchino Maurici and childhood friend Francis Maggiulli, with whom he went on to release five albums between 1989 and 1997. In 2000, he launched his solo career with Au Milieu des Autres, which featured guest appearances by established artists like Pascal Obispo and Zazie, but it wouldn’t be until the release of Calogero (2002) that he truly achieved massive success. Propelled by the singles “En apesanteur” and “Aussi libre que moi,” the LP obtained gold certification and peaked at Number 3 on France’s SNEP charts. Almost entirely co-written with his brother, Maurici’s third album, 3 (2004), topped the French album charts aided by the single “Face à la mer,” a duet with rapper Passi. More accolades ensued, as he secured a victory at the Victoires de la Musique Awards in the category of Male Artist of the Year. In subsequent years, he followed up with a highly-successful string of albums, including L’Embellie (2009), Les Feux d’Artifice (2014), and Liberté Chérie (2017), all of which went straight to the top of the French Album Charts. Centre-Ville, his much-anticipated eighth album, saw the light in 2020 and was preceded by the singles “On fait comme si” and “La Rumeur.”
