Rick Allison (real name: Éric Vleminckx, born July 17, 1964,[1] in Brussels) is a Belgian-born Canadian[1] singer, author and record producer.


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.[2] 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.[3]

All together, he sold more than 25 million records.

For the Eurovision Song Contest in 2002, Allison wrote the music for the French entry, "Il faut du temps" by Sandrine François.[2] 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.[4] 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.[5] This was followed by a series of legal battles over the use of the copyright of Fabian's songs.[6] 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]
