Calogero Mauricci was born on July 30, 1971 in Echirolles close
to Grenoble. As of the 6 years age it is initiated with the
music by his brother who learns how to him to play of the flute
then later of the piano and the guitar. At 15 years, it assembles
its first group, Charts, with his brother, Gioacchino and Francis,
his friend of childhood. So that the trio is complete, Calogero
learns how to play of low. In 1988, more justified than ever
the trio goes up to Paris. They are presented in all the houses
of discs by leaving models there, in vain. However the catch
soon will take place: Philippe Gaillard who works for the house
of disque"Apache" to a true thunderbolt, he becomes
their author and producer.
In 1989, they leave
their first album ("the Ocean Bottomless"). Four others
will follow, until 1997, year of dissolution of Charts.
After the Charts adventure and three years of absence, Calogero
reconsiders the front of the scene and in solo with a very first
album "In the Medium of the Others", produced by Pascal
Obispo into 92 with in particular of the texts written by Zazie.
The music is a passion for Calogero and to compose is its daily
newspaper. In parallel with its own career, he writes for the
others: "Chatelet the Markets" (Florent Pagny), "the
air of time" (Florent Pagny and Cécilia Cara), "In
the name of a woman" (Helene Ségara), "the
love has all the rights" (Ismaël Lo), "Year"
(Pascal Obispo), etc.
At spring 2002, Calogero, new opus of Calogero arrives in the
vats, a strong album, where it is delivered with desire and
sincerity being played with ability of its many influences.
It is elected "Better male artist" at the time of
the "Victoire of the Music 2004" and leaves the same
year its third album quite simply entitled "3". It
is of aillor this figure that it is necessary to wait to hear
the last production of Calogero. "Apple C" (at the
beginning of 2007 left) is a subtle mixture of pop variety to
the sounds Anglo-Saxon which will charm the fans of Calogero.
