Having established himself as a respected French composer and singer-songwriter, Alex Beaupain has found success over the past decade writing music for a number of French film soundtracks as well as releasing several albums. Born in Besançon in 1974, Beaupain, the son of a schoolteacher, grew up listening to such French performers as Jacques Brel and Serge Gainsbourg, and the influence of their "chanson" style is very evident in his own compositions. Working in film, he is best known for his collaborations with director Christophe Honoré, and has composed the soundtracks for several of his movies, including "All Against Leo" (2003), the 2006 film "Dans Paris" and the 2007 Paris-set musical "Love Songs" which harked back to Jacques Demy's screen musicals of the 1960s. The latter film screened in competition at the Cannes Film Festival and went on to win the César -- the French equivalent of the Oscar -- for Best Film Music. Beaupain also penned the soundtrack to Gilles Marchand's 2003 movie "Who Killed Bambi?" and more recently he worked with Honoré again on the 2011 film "The Beloved," which closed the Cannes Film Festival. In addition, he has released several albums, most notably 2005's "Best Man."
