Biography

Michel Jonasz, born January 21, 1947 in Drancy, France, is a French composer-songwriter, singer and actor. He has among others composed: La boîte de jazz, Joueurs de blues and Les vacances au bord de la mer. Born in France to Hungarian immigrant parents, Michel Jonasz left the school at 15 and sought his way as an artist. Painting, theatre and music interested him, but he first found recognition as a pianist.

After having worked with the group of Vigon, Lemons, he created the group King Set in 1966 with his friend and guitarist Alain Goldstein. Two radio successes make known his voice and his talent for the rhythm: an original composition, Apesanteur (Weightlessness), in 1967, and Jezebel in 1968. His solo career began slowly with a 45t at the end of 1968 under the name of Michel Kingset, the following in 1970 under his own name. He has to wait until 1974 to find a large audience with two simultaneous “tubes”: Say to me and Super Nana.

    Je (re)découvre cet artiste grâce à Lfm et Spotify. Ses enregistrements live sont émouvants et sonnent tellement justes. A écouter et à savourer. H.

    Le dernier est excellent, j'ai retrouvé le meilleur Jonasz. Je suis par contre stupéfait qu'aussi peu de monde écoute Jonasz !
