Bertrand Belin is an artist and writer of many talents: he’s a guitarist, arranger, author, composer, and singer. His musical expression borrows from both rock and country, and calls to mind Debussy and Dylan as well as Bill Callahan and Elvis Costello. Between 1989 and 2005, Belin was a guitarist with "Stompin' Crawfish", "Sons of the Desert" and "Les Enfants des Autres", with whom he recorded several albums and went on tour many times.
While working as a singer-songwriter, he also composed music for stage productions and films, including the short film Avec Marinette by Blandine Lenoir, for which he won the award for best music at the Clermont-Ferrand festival. He also composed the music for Zouzou, Lenoir’s feature-length film.
He released his first album, Bertrand Belin, in 2005 and his second, La Perdue, in 2007. He has also been involved with Philippe Decouflé’s Sombreros since 2007. In 2010 he released his third album, Hypernuit, which was unanimously hailed by the critics and won him the Grand prix du Disque from the Académie Charles-Cros. His fourth album, Parcs, was released in May 2013. In March 2015 Belin published his first novel, Requin (éditions P.O.L.).
He also made his theater debut in 2015 in Spleenorama (written and directed by Marc Lainé), and appeared in Low / Heroes, a show based on David Bowie’s Berlin directed by Renaud Cojo at the Philharmonie de Paris. Then in October 2015 he released his latest album, Cap Waller, followed up by a 6-month tour (November 2015-May 2016). In 2016, Belin the actor will star in a new film by Dominique Choisy.
