Philippe Russo is a French singer-songwriter (born on 4 October 1961, Paris). He had a hit between 1986 and early 1987 in France with his single "Magie noire", devoted to the discothèques, which peaked at #10 on the SNEP Singles Chart. Then he published several singles until 1991, but they were unsuccessful and failed to reach the chart. Therefore, Russo can be deemed as a one-hit wonder. He was the guitar of Marc Lavoine during this one's last concert tour.
