Jacques Romain Georges Brel (French pronunciation: Pronunciation ; 8 April 1929 – 9 October 1978) was a Belgian singer, songwriter, actor, poet and director who composed and performed literate, thoughtful, and theatrical songs that generated a large, devoted following-initially in Belgium and France, later throughout the world. He is considered a master of the modern chanson

Jacques Brel’s unshakable faith in his own abilities served him well when all around him were equivocal. Stuck, bored and unfulfilled at the family’s cardboard factory back in Brussels, 24-year-old Brel fled for Paris in September 1953, leaving his wife and young family in Belgium, a temporary arrangement that would remain permanent but for one abortive attempt to relocate them. Brel was unrepentant, and on his final 1977 album, when at death’s door, he upped the ante with an even ruder song, Les . which accuses the Flemish of having standoffish stares and gormless humour, as well as being Nazis during the war, and Catholics in between.

In 1953 Brel began singing in French cafés. He did not meet with immediate success, but he persevered, and his first album, Jacques Brel et ses chansons ( Jacques Brel and His Songs ) appeared in 1955. He finally broke through with the title song of his second album, Quand on n’a que l’amour (1957; If We Only Have Love ), and by the end of the decade he was a star in France.
