Jean-Jacques Goldman

Jean-Jacques Goldman is a Parisian singer/songwriter who has been hugely popular throughout the French-speaking world since his debut LP, 'Alpha Ralpha', in 1977. Before his rise to international fame, however, he learnt his craft singing gospel music with his local church choir (they called themselves The Red Mountain Gospellers). His rock backgrounding happened when he formed a band with Alex and Chris Gibson (of The Gibson Brothers band) called The Phalansters. As a mature artist he is known both for his solo work and his work with Carole Fredericks and Michael Jones in the Fredericks Goldman Jones band in the 1990s. Aside from the successful collaboration Fredericks Goldman Jones, Goldman also played with a progressive rock band, Taï Phong, in the 1970s with whom he recorded three albums in English. He split from the group because he wanted to perform in his native French language. In 1986 Goldman collaborated with French rock royalty when he wrote and produced Johnny Halliday's LP 'Gang'. Continuing to perform and release records as a solo artist, Goldman's next big break came in 1995 when he collaborated as writer and producer on Céline Dion's 'D'eux' LP - the best-selling French language album ever. Goldman officially retired from the music industry in 2011, although he continued to write for other artists.
