Calogero's interest in music began early - as a child he took up the flute, piano and bass and quickly grew to be proficient in each. In 1986, aged 15, he became the lead singer and song-writer for a band called ‘Les Charts' which he began with his brother, Gioacchino, and a childhood friend, Francis Maggiulli. Les Charts released five albums between 1989 and 1997.
As the band began to lose its momentum, Calogero decided to launch himself as a solo artist and gathered important connections by writing songs and collaborating with already popular artists such as Zazie and Pascal Obispo. The latter helped to produce Calogero's first solo album, ‘Au milieu des Autres' (2000). His second album, ‘Calogero' (2002) was a huge success with the hit singles ‘En apesanteur' (In Weightlessness), ‘Aussi libre que moi' (As Free as Me), ‘Tien an men' and ‘Prendre racine' (To Take Root). Finally, in 2004, Calogero released ‘3', featuring ‘Face à la mer' a duet with French rapper Passi and several other top singles such as ‘Yalla' and ‘Si seulement je pouvais lui manquer'.
Calogero's moving lyrics and tender voice have made him one of France's top pop/rock singers.
Calogero released his fourth studio album Pomme C on 12 March 2007.
