Based in Brussels, Belgium.
Albert was raised in Africa and in Europe. He first learned the piano when he was a child and started playing guitar - as an autodidact - at the age of 15. He got a Master degree in Musicology, Archeology & History of Art. As if these contrasting backgrounds weren't enough, it was in Europe, North America and Scandinavia where he really started making a name for himself as a session guitarist and arranger for several bands and artists.
Multi-instrumentalist (guitar, bass, keyboards, bouzouki, mandolin, ...), composer and arranger, Albert was a professional musician for many years, travelling the world, meeting wonderful musicians & talents in several countries, allowing him to get as much experience as he could.
He worked for 8 years with the Norwegian singer Ulf Eirik Tidemann, under the name of "Victoria Station" composing & recording around 150 songs.
Tired of the show business sphere and of the lifestyle on the road, Albert now concentrates only on musical styles he aspires towards, thus giving him total creative freedom.
Albert together with the danish guitarist Ulrik Mogensen was the founding member of the international rock band DrAW. Together and with the different members of the band, they released 9 CD's during their 13 years of existence.
Albert is also a renowned session musician, composer, producer & arranger for various artists.
