Rony Brack

Born: June 23rd, Belgium
Nationality: Belgian

Rony Brack (pseudonym of Ronny Bracke) started his career in music as the keyboard player in pop band The Pebbles. As an instrumentalist, and later composer, arranger, and producer, he worked on countless recordings in Belgium’s studios with (amongst others) Jean ‘Toots’ Thielemans, Urbanus, Boudewijn de Groot, and Gilbert Montagné. He wrote the hit single ‘Drop the deal’ for Code 61 in 1988, starting the New Beat trend. Later, Brack moved to Los Angeles, where he continued composing and arranging. He recorded music with Elton John and guitarist Zakk Wylde. Since the 1990s, he has written music for television and film.

In 1982, Rony Brack co-composed ‘Si tu aimes ma musique’ with a couple of old friends from the Pebbles band; performed by Stella Maessen, it represented Belgium in the Eurovision Song Contest held in Harrogate and finished fourth. Eight years later, Brack returned to the contest as an arranger and conductor for another francophone Belgian entry, ‘Macédomienne’ by Philippe Lafontaine. In Zagreb, this entry came twelfth amongst twenty-two competing countries.

In due course, a more extensive biography of Rony Brack will be published on this website
