Born in Marseilles in 1920.

The childhood of Hubert Giraud is marked by the loss of his father. Since this death, it suffers from asthma, disease which will have an influence on the destiny of the young boy. Indeed, a doctor recommands to learn how to play of a wind instrument. Hubert chooses the harmonica, instrument with which it plays at the Hot Club of France, around 1937, with the famous Django Reinhard.

In 1941, Hubert becomes a member of Ray Ventura's Orchestra, which leaves then for South America. Ray pushes Hubert Giraud to learn to play guitar. As a professor he got the best, Henri Salvador, who then forms also part of the orchestra of Ray Ventura. The adventure of South America lasts six years On its return, the artist integrates the orchestra of Jacques Hélian, then melts the group Do Re Mi.

Its first song as a composer, “Aimer comme je t'aime,/To like like I love you”, sung by Yvette Giraud (1950), is a success. During the Fifties, successes are followed to an insane rate. The melodies of the composer are performed by the great names of Music business: Édith Piaf “Mea Culpa”, 1954,”Les Grognards”, 1957, Gloria Lasso “Dolorès”, Dalida “Buenas noches mi amor”, “Les Gitans/gipsies”, “Million of tears”, “Melodie Perdue/lost Mélody”, “L`arlequin de Tolède/the Harlequin of Tolede”, Luis Mariano “”Que l'amour me pardonne/That love forgives me”, the Companions of the song “the harlequin of Tolède” and “lost Mélody”, André Claveau “Dors mon amour/Sleep my love” in 1958, Sacha Distel “Oui,Oui,Oui/Yes yes yes yes, 1959, “Rien qu'un au revoir/Only one goodbye, François Deguelt “ Je te tendrai les bras/I will tighten you the arms, 1959. The greatest song of this time remains however “Sous le ciel de Paris/Under the sky of Paris”, written with Jean Dréjac, in 1950, it was sung by Juliette Gréco, Yves Montand, Édith Piaf and Jean Bretonnière, among Many other artists.

Contrary to much of its generation, the 'pop years' do not touch the success of the composer. Indeed, Hubert Giraud composes, on lyrics made by Vline Buggy, “Pauvre petite fille riche” for Claude Francois, in 1963. Nana Mouskouri “L'enfant et la Gazelle/the child and the gazelle”, 1968, “Ma maison devant la mer/My house in front of the sea” and Claude Nougaro “Sensual”, “Les petits bruns et les grands blonds/ the small brown ones and the large fair ones”. Among the other performers of the time appear Jacqueline Boyer “Comme au premier jour/As at the first day”, Monty “D'ombre et de soleil/Of shade and sun”, Marie Laforêt and Bourvil, “La tendresse/tenderness”, France Gall “Y'a du soleil/there is sun”, 1968) and Franck Fernandel “the bouillabaise”, 1969).

In 1967, Hubert Giraud signs “Il est mort le soleil/It died the sun” for Nicoletta, song followed, in 1971, by “Mamy blue”. These two great successes will be translated into English and will know a broad audience interpreted by Ray Charles and Tom Jones. Moreover, during the Seventies, Severine “J'ai besoin de soleil/I have need for sun”, 1972), Marcel Amont “La demande en mariage/the demand for marriage”, 1970, “Moitié orange,moitié citron/Half orange, half lemon”, 1970, Frida Boccara “Tu es le cri de ma jeunesse/You are the cry of my youth”, 1970), the Troubadours “Je te verrai passer, je te reconnaîtrai /I will see you passing, I will recognize you”, 1974 and Anne-Marie David “Je suis l'enfant soleil/I am the child sun, 1979 are recording songs of Hubert Giraud.

However, it is Nicole Croisille who will become her favourite performer. Nicole records, in 1974,” Parlez-moi de lui/Speak to me about him” with an enormous success. “C'est comme un arc-en-ciel /It is like a rainbow” in 1976, “La femme et l'enfant/the woman and the child”, 1977 and “Tu m'avais dit /You had said to me” closes this collaboration. In addition, in 1982, it is Céline Dion who inserts in her repertory the very well know, “Tellement j'ai d'amour pour toi / I have such love for you”.

With career such a long and marked out of such an amount of success, it is not astonishing to find innumerable prices and distinctions there: Price of the Song in Deauville (1954), Eurovision Grand price (1958), Gold Cock of the song (1958), Golden Rose of Antibes (1965), Great Price of the French song (1997). , Hubert Giraud is a true melodist, who knows how to touch the public.
