French singer, writer, actor, producer, director and stylist, born on 1 July 1986 at Montargis in the Loiret. He would discover his passion for the stage as a teenager, performing in amateur musicals and any number of singing contests all over France where he would be talent spotted by producers from Paris. Impatient and ambitious, he would settle in Paris on the day of his 18th birthday to take part in season 2 of the TV programme, Entrées d’artistes, presented by Pascal Sevran on France 2. An ensemble album and a nationwide tour would follow. In 2005, Jérémy Amelin would be a contestant in the fifth season of the successful TV programme, Star Academy ,broadcast on TF1. He would sing with world-renowned performers such as Liza Minnelli, Celine Dion, James Blunt, Johnny Halliday, Charles Aznavour and many others. After 3 albums and sixteen prime-time live TV appearances watched by more than 10 million viewers, he would end up as a finalist in the programme. The following year, accompanied by a symphonic orchestra, he would tread the boards of the greatest theatres in France for a concert tour. Since then, he has embarked on a solo career produced by Universal Music. He made number 13 in the French charts with his first single, A contre-sens, on which he penned the flip-side himself, a song entitled J’te déteste. This was to be followed by four more singles, which enjoyed worldwide distribution. Jérémy would be the artistic director and director of the majority of his video clips. He went on to split his time between Paris and Los Angeles, where he duetted with with Jessica Lowndes, the star of the American TV series, 90210, on his single, Undone, in 2011. Jérémy would make the most of these years on the road to complete his training as a performer (theatre, dance, direction, etc.) and add a new string to his bow, fashion design. He would create his own clothing brand and design for the legendary American brand, Schott NYC. In 2015, Richard Cocciante and Luc Plamandon, under the spell of Jérémy’s voice, offered him the opportunity to take over the role of Phoebus in the now cult musical, The Hunchback of Notre Dame. He would appear in this particularly vocal role, originally performed by Patrick Fiori, for 3 months, performing in the most beautiful theatres in South Korea. At the age of thirty, Jérémy is a complete all-round performer,making the most of his prodigious talents.
