First scales on the piano at the age of six. Switches to the drum kit (self taught) during his teenage years and will then pursue a complete cycle of classical studies (from chamber music to harmony) at Dijon’s conservatory of music.
A brilliant multi-instrumentalist, he becomes a professional musician at the age of 18 and tours with French singers Flow and Emilie Gassin, as well as with the bands Outlines and Sutcliffe. Founder member of the latter, he records their first album (« Faut pas crisper le voisin ») released to critical acclaim. He leaves Sutcliffe soon after the release and embarks upon a European tour with singer/songwriter Jeremy Jay followed by recording sessions in London.
Taking a few months off, he works on a series of compositions for a piano solo project (still under construction) while doing more studio sessions for Liset Alea (album Heart-Headed/release October 2016), Barry (covers of French icon Marie Laforêt), and Clara Luciani (work in progress).
Live, he accompanies Liset Alea, Clara Luciani, Alma Forrer, Burning Peacoks and La Féline, on keyboards and drums (oftentimes simultaneously) and vibraphone.
Alban Claudin also composed original music for clients such as Van Cleef & Arpels, Louis Vuitton, Chanel and PNB/Paribas. In 2015 he scored « Breathe », a documentary about yoga directed by Stephane Haskell.
