Murat began his music career in the late 1970s as a member of the band Clara et les Chics Types. He released his first solo album, "Passions privées," in 1983, which was followed by a string of critically acclaimed albums throughout the 1980s and 1990s.

In addition to his music career, Murat has also acted in several films, including "La Belle Noiseuse" and "La Fille de d'Artagnan."
