Alain Clark is born in Haarlem, the Netherlands. He went to there to the Coornhert Lyceum and also lived in the USA for 3 years to work on his songwriting skills. His first album was released in 2004, written and produced by himself, in Dutch and contained the hitsong Heerlijk.

As a producer he worked with Ali B and many others. He produced the debut album of singer Boris. He won the Dutch Zilveren Harp in 2004.

In January 2007 Clark worked on his first album in English. Steve Gadd played all drums on Live It Out, an album that went Gold in just 3 months. Today the album is 3 times Platinum, that is, more than 180.000 copies sold. The album contains hit singles like This Ain't Gonna Work, which went straight to the Top 3 and stayed in the Dutch charts for 12 weeks, and the famous duet with his father Dane Clark titled Father and Friend. Dane Clark was the singer of the band Dane and the Dukes of Soul. After these two hit singles, Blow Me Away reached the Dutch Top 10 as well. In the end of 2007 Alain received a Mega Award. In 2008 he received a 3FM Award and in 2009 he won the high respected Edison Music Award.

After his succes in the Netherlands, Alain Clark released the album in the United Kingdom, and reached the charts in Italy and Switzerland.

In 2010 Clark released his album Colorblind. It went Gold on the first day. It contains the singles Love Is Everywhere, Good Days and a duet with Diane Birch titled Too Soon To End. The album was released in Italy, Switzerland, Brasil and Latvia.

After Live It Out and Colorblind, both very successful records full of melodic soul, 32-year old Alain returns on Generation Love Revival to the passion of his youth: the groove. Alain: ‘At fifteen I mainly listened to hiphop artists. Like them I was only interested in rhythm and minimal melody. Those were my roots, that’s the way I started making music. On Generation Love Revival I return to that groove-based way of composing. And of course: I use all the experience of the years in between.’

‘I am proud of the cast. Besides Pablo Penton and Pablo Minoli, Chris ‘Daddy’ Dave (drums), Pino Palladino (bass) and Cleo ‘Pookie’ Sample (keyboards) contributed to the record.’ They also played on the last records of soul star D’Angelo and Adele.
