With his sound firmly steeped in the best traditions of Motown and classic sixties soul, Alain Clark became the Netherlands hottest new artist of 2008. His debut single This Aint Gonna Work announced Clarks arrival in style as it scurried up to #3 in the charts. The subsequent singles Father and Friend (#2), Blow Me Away (#8) and Fell In Love (#10) cemented Clarks reputation and forced his debut Live It Out past double Platinum status with near immediacy as well as to a peak position of #2 during an epic stay in the charts.
Live It Out received widespread critical acclaim as Clark received a prestigious Rembrandt Prize as well as the major Megaward. Clark was also the star of national radio station 3FMs award ceremony, earning Best Single (for Father and Friend), Best Male Singer and Best Newcomer.
