Benjamin Biolay (born January 20, 1973) is a French singer, songwriter, musician and record producer. He is the brother of singer Coralie ClÃ©ment, whose two albums he wrote and produced, and the husband of Chiara Mastroianni, the daughter of Catherine Deneuve and Marcello Mastroianni.
His low-key vocal style is somewhat similar to French pop star Ã‰tienne Daho. With the singer Keren Ann, whose first two albums he co-wrote and -produced, he contributed several songs to Chambre avec vue, the successful comeback album of singer Henri Salvador, and has since worked as a writer, arranger or producer for other icons of French music, including Juliette GrÃ©co, Julien Clerc and FranÃ§oise Hardy.
He wrote or performed most of the songs on the 2004 soundtrack to Clara et Moi by Arnaud Viard, and released the album Home with his wife the same year.
