Producer /// Songwriter /// Musician /// Singer /// Remixer /// Talent scout
Born and raised at the Luxembourgian border, Arker (aka Gérald Lambert) has since then relocated to Brussels, a city that has become a thriving platform for him to weave a broad and sophisticated cobweb of national and international collaborations, partnerships and projects. Through his dedicated work as a music professional, Arker has gained an ever-increasing trust and recognition from his peers over the years.
His debut LP “Them and I” was distributed by Universal with up to 5 singles airplayed on most national radios (Studio Brussel, Radio1, Pure FM, Classic 21, La Première, VivaCité…). Arker performed and introduced his newborn to audiences all around the country (Ancienne Belgique, Cirque Royal, Botanique, Brussels Summer festival, Nandrin, Suikerrock, Francofolies de Spa…), attracting widespread critical acclaim.
Following this career as a solo act, he embarked on Yoko Sounds' journey, whose first opus “Not Enemy” he composed, recorded and produced. The project (distributed by Pias / bang) was also brought on a multitude of Belgian and French stages where Arker contributed to the melodic ensemble of the band, playing the keyboard, the guitar and back-singing during their many performances as support act for international artists like Nouvelle Vague and Tricky (Massive Attack).
From then on, Arker has made the songwriting & production side of things his main activity. Since 2010, the producer has worked alongside artists like Slovak model/singer Lea Danis (Victoria's secret), Swedish singer/songwriter Hanna Turi and several Belgian acts: Warner Bros actor/singer Thijs Antonneau, Camillefois, Newton, Sennin, Joni Sheila, Iana, Ruby, Eamonn Tobin, Soldout, Buddha For Mary, Redsofa (ex-Dole: first band signed by Pias in early 1980's), Lukka (The Voice), Lilly B Wolf, Sharon… Always looking to broaden his musical horizons and discover new talents, Arker adapts his skills to an eclectic set of acts offering genres going from indie rock to electro pop to jazz to world music. And not to mention his remixes for Imogen Heap, Charlie Winston, Peter Gabriel...
