Biography

Daniel Darc

Daniel Rozoum known as Daniel Darc (20 May 1959 - 28 February 2013) was a French singer, who achieved success with his band Taxi Girl (together with Mirwais Ahmadzaï) between 1978 and 1986, and also as a solo artist.

Born in Paris, France, after Taxi Girl was disbanded in 1986, he continued a solo career releasing Sous influence divine in 1987 produced by Jacno that included a cover version of "Comment te dire adieu", lyrics by Serge Gainsbourg, popularized by Françoise Hardy. In 1994 he released Nijinsky and then two albums in cooperation with composer, director and producer Frédéric Lo, first Crève cœur in 2004, and then Amours suprêmes in 2008. The title of the latter was a reference to "A Love Supreme" by John Coltrane, with appearances by Alain Bashung, Robert Wyatt, Morgane (singer of Cocoon) and Steve Nieve.

The last album released while he was alive was La Taille de mon âme in 2011. Darc died on 28 February 2013 of an heart attack. He was 53.

Some of his materials were released post mortem in 2013 under the title Chapelle Sixteen.
