Jean Schultheis is a French singer-songwriter who started playing the piano at the age of 5 and entered the Conservatory at the age of 14. He also won a First Prize in percussion in 1963.
He really started his artistic career in the mid-1970s when he played the role of public prosecutor Fouquier-Tinville in the musical "La Revolution Française" by Claude-Michel Schönberg.
Then he becomes in turn musician of Michel Jonasz and Maxime Le Forestier for whom he plays piano and drums.
He even released a first album "Spectacles" in 1978, an album of modest success.
It was in 1981 that everything accelerated when he was noticed in the orchestra accompanying Jacques Martin's show "Dimanche Martin".
But it is above all the single "Confidence pour confidence", released the same year, which will propel him in a dazzling way to the front of the stage. The single is a real hit and the singer's notoriety explodes. The album "Abracadabra" was released immediately.
A dazzling but fleeting success because the artist will be unable to repeat the feat despite the subsequent release of other albums.
He had a last relative success in 1987 with the single “Va te faire voir (chez les Grecs)”.

1978 ... the first steps. Who could imagine at this stage the enormous sequel that looms on the horizon. Not many people, it's clear ...
1981 ... the title of a lifetime ! After several unsuccessful attempts, it is THIS title that will literally explode the notoriety of the singer. Here he signs one of the biggest Dance titles of the decade on the French side. MAS-TER-FUL !
1982 ... despite a sequel of obvious quality, it is almost impossible to compete with the previous gem. This will also be the case for all the titles that will follow ...
1982 ... a prolific year but the quality of songs very uncertain. How to define this one ... hum, hum. Not easy ...
1982 ... we already find him a little more inspired on this title. But once again, it is impossible to find the stroke of genius that made the difference on 'Confidence pour confidence'
1982 ... who would have imagined he was behind the credits of one of the most famous entertainment shows of the time. His second most beautiful achievement...but which nobody knows is him !
1984 ... the years unfortunately follow one another in terms of results. Success inexorably flees the artist ...
1985 ... and this is not the title that will change anything once again. When it no longer wants, it no longer wants ...
1987 ... one last title to save the honor. Once again, there is talent, that's clear. But it still lacks the little extra that could - and should - make the difference ...
