With parents who were professional musicians, it was inevitable for Alain to develop an interest in music at a young age.
He began taking lessons at 7 and played in bands around Miami until he moved to California to attend UCLA. Because of his natural talent he soon found himself on tour with the world renown Cirque du Soleil. Upon finishing the 4-year stint, which ended in Montreal, he was invited to play with multi-Felix award winner Jean Leloup with whom he still plays with today. Since then he has made Montréal his home base and has become one of the top drummers on the scene. In 1999 during a Canadian tour he met world famous Grammy winning African singer Youssou N'Dour, played on 6 of his albums and toured with him all over the world. In addition to playing on over 100 records Alain writes and produces music for recording artists, television and film. Some of the artists he has worked with include Peter Gabriel, Daniel Belanger, Kevin Parent, Ariane Moffat, Jordan Officer, Elage Diouf. He has also earned a Juno and Felix through his work as a producer.
