Coralie Clément (September 1, 1978 in Villefranche-sur-Saône, Rhône) is a French singer.
Clément was born into a family of musicians, her father a clarinetist, and studied the violin from the age of six but later quit. Her brother, Benjamin Biolay, also a singer, has written for Henri Salvador and wrote and produced her own debut, as well as its follow-up. Among her claimed inspirations are Françoise Hardy, Jane Birkin and Serge Gainsbourg. She recorded her first album while studying history at university.
Clément sang the song "Dorénavant," used as the theme of the film L'Idole by Samantha Lang, starring Leelee Sobieski as well as the song "Samba de mon cœur qui bat" used in the soundtrack of the movie Something's Gotta Give starring Diane Keaton, Jack Nicholson, Amanda Peet, Keanu Reeves and Frances McDormand.
She released her first album in 2001, Salle des Pas Perdus. This album is a collaborative effort between her and her brother, Benjamin Biolay, who wrote and arranged 10 of the 12 songs. Her second album, Bye bye beauté, was released in 2005 and features songs that are more pop and rock oriented than those of Salle des Pas Perdus.
