Rick Allison (real name: Éric Vleminckx,[1] born July 17, 1964,[2] in Brussels) is a Belgian-born Canadian[2] musician and record producer best known for his work with singer Lara Fabian.


In 1990, Allison met singer Lara Fabian in a piano-bar in Brussels. They started writing their first songs together and went to Montréal in 1991 to work on Fabian's first album.[3] This record came out in 1991 in Canada and was a huge commercial success. Allison produced Fabian's following francophone albums Carpe Diem, Pure and Nue, all of which performed very well and spawned several hit singles in Canada and French-speaking Europe. He also worked on her first English-language album Lara Fabian.[4]

For the Eurovision Song Contest in 2002, Allison wrote the music for the French entry, "Il faut du temps" by Sandrine François.[3] That same year, he contributed three songs on Johnny Hallyday's album À la vie, à la mort, including the single Pense à moi.

Allison had another major success when he produced Chimène Badi's debut album Entre nous in 2003. The single of the same name topped the French Singles Chart.[5] Later on he worked with other young female singers, including Nolwenn Leroy, Julie Zenatti and Élodie Frégé.

In 2004, Allison and Fabian, who had been a couple in real life, broke up and also ended their professional relationship.[6] This was followed by a series of legal battles over the use of the copyright of Fabian's songs.[1] Allison also contributed five songs to Chimène Badi's hit album Dis-moi que tu m'aimes and worked on two songs Michel Sardou's album Du plaisir.[7]

Since, he has composed songs for several French and French-Canadian singers such as Gino Quilico, Vincent Niclo, Marc-André Fortin, Suzie Villeneuve and Magalie Vaé, for whom he produced the album Magalie in 2006.[7]

In 2004, Allison won the International Achievement Award with co-writer Lara Fabian at the Francophone SOCAN Awards in Montreal.[8]
