Biography

Voulzy 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 Alain 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.

After a huge hit with his N°1 album "La Septième Vague" in 2006, Voulzy records in 2007 on duet with famous French guitarist Jean-Pierre Danel on his hit album "Guitar Connection 2". The song hits the French charts at #7 in 2008.

In 2007, Voulzy toured France.

He has also been featured as a guest artist on Irish pop group The Corrs' remake of the Everly Brothers hit "All I Have To Do Is Dream", where he plays guitar and provides guest vocals.

It is often claimed that Voulzy now lives in Southern England, in the town of Haslemere. Moreover it is also claimed that he moved to join his family who had already lived there for 20 years. However, this cannot be verified externally to wikipedia.
