|Laurent Voulzy is a French singer and composer.
Voulzy was born in Paris, France. He originally led the English-pop-influenced Le Temple de Vénus before joining Pascal Danel as guitarist from 1969 to 1974. However, he is best known for his collaborative songwriting efforts with singer/songwriter Souchon and his solo singing career, which spanned several successful albums.
Voulzy had an international hit with the song Rockollection. The French lyrics were interspersed with some lines from classic rock hits after the chorus. His major French hits also include ‘Le Soleil Donne’ – sung in French, English and Spanish – and ‘Les Nuits Sans Kim Wilde’ (‘Nights without Kim Wilde‘), inspired by the chart-topping English singer.
In 2005, Voulzy co-produced and co-composed Nolwenn Leroy‘s second album Histoires Naturelles.
Voulzy had a huge hit with his album La Septième Vague which reached number one in 2006. Featured on the album is a cover of the Everly Brothers‘ hit “All I Have to Do Is Dream”, recorded as a duet with Irish singer Andrea Corr. The song was released as a single and was also included on The Corrs‘ greatest hits album Dreams: The Ultimate Corrs Collection.
Voulzy recorded in 2007 a duet with famous French guitarist Jean-Pierre Danel on his hit album Guitar Connection 2. The song hit the French charts at #7 in 2008. For his 2011 album, Lys and Love, Voulzy recorded a duet on the song “Ma Seule Amour” with English singer Roger Daltrey of The Who.

Laurent Voulzy has a reputation for being one of the slowest songwriters in French music history. In fact, he has recorded just 3 albums in the last 25 years!
But who cares about being a snail-pace songwriter when nearly every single you release turns to gold? And frankly, what’s the hurry when, like Voulzy, you regularly hit the n°1 spot once a year? Or when you also compose several hits for your brother in songs Alain Souchon?
Laurent Voulzy is a renowned perfectionist, capable of locking himself away in the studio for months on end to craft his delicate pop melodies. And it shows – Voulzy’s songs are veritable gems of musical perfection.
Their catchy arrangements and melody lines are guaranteed to stay in the mind for years to come!

Souchon and Voulzy, Voulzon and Souchy, Soulon and Vouchzy. The names are easily mixed up, given that these two seem to have been made to sing together. Sweet songs, delicate voices, sad sensitivities, like two benevolent dads singing lullabies to calm the spirits of their grumpy children. The list of their successes is almost endless: La Vie Ne Vaut Rien, Foule Sentimentale and Sous les Jupes des Filles for Souchon, Belle Île en Mer, Rock Collection and Le Pouvoir des Fleurs for Voulzy. And many others that they have written and sung together. Chances are the Paléo site will be drenched in the sweetness and love of this age-old friendship.
