Hailing from Toulouse, French singer/songwriter Etienne Charry is an indie darling who composes experimental pop rock with a delightful romanticism.

Aside from his work with his own material, Charry has also composed music for various small budget films, commercials, and theater productions. Charry is a former member of "Oui Oui," a French pop group formed in 1983.

Guitarist/singer Étienne Charry and drummer Michel Gondry met at secondary school in Sèvres in 1978. The repertoire of songs Oui Oui built up was a reaction to what was termed cold wave music in France and the more politicised rock groups of the era. Numerous musicians passed through the group's ranks in the early years. With the addition of keyboardist Gilles Chapat and bassist Nicolas Dufournet, a more settled line-up was established. In 1989 Oui Oui released their first album Chacun Tout Le Monde on the Just'in label.

Following the departure of Gilles Chapat, the second Oui Oui album Formidable (1991, released by FNAC Music) was recorded by the trio of Charry, Gondry and Dufournet. Keyboardist Matthieu Ballet would later take Chapat's place. Both Oui Oui albums are currently out of print, having been issued by labels which would cease operations within months of the respective albums' releases. Oui Oui disbanded in 1992. Michel Gondry has since gone on to become an acclaimed movie and music video director.

The film clips he directed for Oui Oui would later feature on the 2003 DVD The Work of Michel Gondry. Read more on Last.fm. User-contributed text is available under the Creative Commons By-SA License; additional terms may apply..
