Biography

Paris, France (1968 – present)

Alain Chamfort, born Alain Govic, is a French singer of Breton origin, born on 2 March 1949 in Paris, France.

He was a promising pianist in his youth, and the piano became his instrument of choice. His first band, “The Dreamers” had minor success as a repertory jazz outfit, and was followed by a time in a typically sixties rock music group “Murator”.

From 1968 until 1970, Alain recorded five singles without much success.

He met famed writer and producer Jacques Dutronc who proposed to accompany Chamfort on future works for television and film, and it is with Dutronc that Chamfort’s career expanded. After being discovered by Dutronc, it was with Claude François and ultimately Serge Gainsbourg who will see leading of marvellous albums and the first album of Alain Chamfort: “Manureva”. This song remains one of the most famous to date of Chamfort.

Alain Chamfort composed for the cinema; he worked with Jean-Pierre Mocky and with Arnaud Sélignac. As an actor, he was in front of the camera in “Men/Toys/Girl” in 2001. In 2004, he becomes member of the board of directors of the SACEM.
