Biography

Born Meirlaen was born on July 15th, 1980 in the city of Ghent, Belgium and catched the musical virus rather fast. When still a child, he listened to the music of the likes of Michael Jackson, Stevie Wonder and Billy Joel. The old piano at his grandmothers’ house was his first love and he would spend every school luchtime behind it. At the time, he hated the music-theory and classical pianolessons he was sent to by his parents – something he’s now obviously very grateful for.

In his early teen years Born was introduced to the music of Metallica, Nirvana, Guns ’n Roses, Rage Against The Machine and Red Hot Chilli Peppers by his cousin, which opened up a completely new world for him. Later, discovering the music of Frank Zappa and The Wizards Of Ooze, Born became interested in jazz and funk. He played in various bands, both as a keyboardplayer and guitarist, and was always very much involved in the writing process of original songs.

As a young musician, Born went to study at the Antwerp Jazz Studio for one year and then enrolled at the School of Audio Engineering to specialize in recording techniques. Born studied in Rotterdam for 1 year and then continued his education at Middlesex University, where he graduated as Bachelor in Recording Arts. Born was subsequently offered a job at the La Chapelle studio in Waimes, where he worked for over three years as an in-house engineer while still participating in some local successful projects & bands.
