His father was a clarinet player and member of the local orchestra. Biolay played the violin as a young man, going on to study the instrument at the Lyons Conservatoire. Over the years, his musical interests would grow to encompass classical Mozart, Beethoven , American pop Chuck Berry, the Beatles , and traditional French music Trenet.

From the violin, he moved on to the tuba, trombone, guitar, and piano. When he was 13, he discovered Gainsbourg's "Histoire de Melody Nelson," which would have a big influence on his own concept recording 's Rose Kennedy. From his teens through his early twenties, Biolay was a member of several groups, including Wind? The latter released a CD in , which made little impact.

In , he was signed as a solo artist to EMI, but his initial singles also met with little success. In , Biolay released his full-length debut, Rose Kennedy, a concept album full of hushed vocals, lush strings, and lyrical musings about the Kennedy family -- and Marilyn Monroe -- mostly from the point of view of family matriarch Rose. The recording features audio excerpts that evoke those golden years when JFK was in the White House, brother Robert was attorney general, and Monroe was on the silver screen.

The album sold more than 75, copies, achieving gold status. In , Biolay came into his own -- a Franco-Italian acting dynasty, that is -- when he married Chiara Mastroianni, daughter of Catherine Deneuve and Marcello Mastroianni. The following year, he was credited with writing the score for the film Clara et Moi; it featured his own songs redone by himself and friends, with a few cues from the classical canon mixed in.

The album of all-original material juxtaposed indie pop, chamber strings, and, for the first time, electronic beats and loops. It featured duets with Hardy and Michel Becquet. The album was greeted by international acclaim. He was also feverishly writing his own music. The album was a virtual decalogue of the sensual in French society; its songs ranged from jazzy chanson to indie rock to trip-hop, EDM, and even cabaret.
