Pierre Bachelet was a French composer and singer whose particularity was to be a graduate of the National School of Photography and Cinematography.
He started his professional career at the end of the 60s in the world of advertising, made some documentaries, advertising music and especially film music.
Its true beginnings in the musical career date from 1973 with the creation of the group "Resonance". Adventure without tomorrow.
It was in 1974 that things suddenly accelerated with the release of his first single "Emmanuelle" which brought him a certain notoriety.
In 1975 released his first album "L’Atlantique" with modest success.
It will have to wait five years and the year 1980 before being propelled to the front of the stage thanks to the now cult “Elle est d'ailleurs”, extracted from the album of the same name, and which will sell for 1, 5 million copies.
In 1982 he did it again with the album "Les corons" from which the single of the same name would be extracted and which will stay in history as his major single.
1983 saw the release of the much more modestly successful album "Découvrir l'Amérique".
Followed in 1985 by "Marionnetiste" and "En l'an 2001" which will allow him to find his way back to success.
His last notable successes will be the album "Vingt ans" in 1987 from which is extracted the single of the same name.
As well as the album "Quelque part...c'est toujours ailleurs" both certified Platinum Disc.
Other albums will come out later but will never have the same level of success.
And the adventure will end definitively with the disappearance of the artist in 2005 following a lung cancer, artist with multiple talents and who will have left an indelible and very popular imprint in the hearts of the French.
To discover or rediscover.
