Cali In-depth Biography

Folk-jazz} singer/songwriter Cali} emerged as one of French pop}'s biggest new stars when the listening public adopted his 2003 debut single, "C'est Quand le Bonheur?"} as an anthem for post-adolescent disillusionment. Born {%Bruno Calicuri} in Perpignan, France, in June 1968, he initially dreamed of a career as a professional rugby player before a 1984 U2} concert shifted his priorities to music. A self-taught guitarist, he soon emerged as a staple of the local live circuit, and after a series of short-lived band affiliations, he joined the group Indy} in 1994. After two LPs and more than 200 live dates, Calicuri} joined the band Tom Scarlett}, issuing a self-financed album to scant attention in 1998. After dissolving the project, he abbreviated his name to Cali}, and in collaboration with Tom Scarlett}, guitarist Hugo Baretge} began a lengthy residency at the Perpignan} club Le Mediator}. Opening dates in support of superstars including Bénabar} and Brigitte Fontaine} earned attention from audiences and critics alike, and a celebrated July 2002 performance at La Rochelle's famed Francofolies} festival proved the turning point of his career, earning a record deal with the Labels} imprint. Cali}'s debut LP, L'Amour Parfait}, hit stores in mid-2003, immediately earning comparisons with rival singer/songwriter Miossec}, leader of the so-called "chanson réaliste" movement. "C'est Quand le Bonheur?"} (When's Happiness?) struck a profound chord within listeners of Cali}'s post-revolt generation and earned him a nomination as Best Newcomer of the Year at the annual Victoires de la Musique Awards. In late 2004 Cali} released Plein de Vie}, a live DVD documenting his May 26 performance at Paris' Le Bataclan}, and in January 2005 headlined the legendary music hall the Olympia}. Cali}'s sophomore effort, the much-anticipated Menteur}, finally dropped that autumn. The following summer, he co-starred in the film musical} Magique!} ~ Jason Ankeny, All Music Guide
