Best known for being the predominant music co-writer for MORRISSEY 90's until ~2006. Alain started out in the rockabilly scene and transitioned seamlessly to the indie and rock scene while writing and touring with Morrissey. Often referred to as the "Johnny Marr" of Morrissey's solo career, they created several fan faves such as, "We Hate It When Our Friends Become Successful", "Tomorrow", "Seasick, Yet Still Docked", "Hold On To Your Friends", "Southpaw", "Trouble Loves Me", "Alma Matters", "Irish Blood, English Heart", "First Of The Gang To Die", "Let Me Kiss You", "Life Is A Pigsty", "Something Is Squeezing My Skull", "When Last I Spoke To Carol".
When that chapter came to an end, Alain found himself living in Los Angeles and writing for other artists such as Madonna and The Black-Eyed Peas, to name a few. He fronted a three piece band named Red Lightning for a time and issued a cd/record called "L.A. Crash Landing". Living in Los Angeles has provided other avenues to share his talents with other musicians via the film and television industry. He's written for several hit shows and produces other bands as well.
In addition to co-writing, Alain never stopped writing for himself as well and has amassed a vast resource of tunes over the years. With the timing being right, he recently has re-united with other Mozzer alumni, Dean Butterworth and Gary Day and released his first ever solo record, "The Experiment EP" at the end of 2018. He was featured and interviewed on shows by legendary radio hosts, Steve Jones (Sex Pistols), Richard Blade, and Rodney Bingenheimer (setting a record for attaining an unprecedented consecutive number of weeks of airplay on his show). Following an overwhelmingly positive reception, production for the follow up EP began. "A Higher Power EP" will be released mid summer and touring will follow.
The sound of Alain's new material (all of which was written and produced by Alain) has been compared to Morrissey (for obvious reasons), Echo And The Bunnymen (several fans noting he has a similar singing style), features a little bit of the snarl of The Clash and offers a touch of the glam guitar at times featured in classical Suede songs.
The songs are featured on all of the digital media outlets (Apple Music, Spotify, etc.) via user id "alainwhytemusic". There are also several videos on his YouTube channel, including that of "A Higher Power".
