Biography

The son of legendary troubadour Serge Gainsbourg and French model/actress Bambou, Lulu Gainsbourg initially shied away from the spotlight before following in his half-sister Charlotte's footsteps by pursuing both a music and acting career. Born Lucien Gainsbourg in 1986, he was given the nickname Lulu in a song sung by his mother a year later, and appeared on-stage just two years later with a performance of "Hey Man, Amen," during his father's last live tour at Le Zenith. After Serge's death in 1991, Lulu was encouraged to develop his musical skills and went onto study the piano at the Conservatoire de Paris and record a duet with Bambou as a teenager ("Ne Dis Rien"). In 2002, he made his acting debut in Francois Armanet's La Bande du Drugstore, and after relocating to London, and then Boston, where he attended Berklee College of Music, he penned a track for Marc Lavoine's Vol. 10 ("Quand Je Suis Seul") and worked on Charlotte's third album, IRM. In 2011, he released his debut solo record, From Gainsbourg to Lulu, a collection of his favorite Serge songs performed with the likes of Rufus Wainwright, Scarlett Johansson, and Vanessa Paradis & Johnny Depp. ~ Jon O'Brien
