CB Milton biography

Records company: Byte Records
A wonderful black voice, an imposing presence and fantastic dance qualities are all hallmarks of Clarence B. Milton. A star with international style.

CB Milton was born in Surinam, but he has lived in The Netherlands since he was six years old. In 1985 he got his Visser MAVO in Rotterdam. In 1987 he graduated from VHBO. He did not have the money for a proper musical education, so he was forced to teach himself the difficult profession of a musician. The prizes CB Milton regularly won at talent competitions encouraged him to go on, and finally he had enough self-confidence to make a definitive move into a musical career.

He learned the tricks of the trade working with the group Swinging Soul Machine, and became the youngest lead singer that the group had ever known in its twenty-five years of existence. CB also worked as a session musician for famous artists such as Madeline Bell and The Trammps. Through the bass player of The Trammps, CB Milton came into contact with the successful Belgian production duo Phil Wilde and Peter Bauwens. After seeing a performance, the spiritual father of 2 Unlimited, Jean-Paul De Coster, fell for CB Milton's talent. The rest is history.

Their first period of work together resulted in the release of a debut single Send Me An Angel, which has made people everywhere sit up this year. This number was in the charts for many weeks, amid rapidly rising international interest which culminated in a worldwide release. One interesting detail : during promotional performances on radio and television, CB Milton has consistently surprised friends and enemies alike by insisting on singing live, even though programme directors have often advised him against doing so.

The nine follow-up-singles (amongst them If You Leave Me Now, It's A Loving Thing and A Real Love) and two albums proved CB's talents. Most of them charted in his home-territory the Benelux and many of them became European airplay-hits (It's A Loving Thing, one of his best releases ever, reached # 3 in Israel and # 34 in UK). He now is a highly-respected natural talent, and takes to stage performances like a fish to water. CB had now sold over 500.000 records. It's A Loving Thing was covered by the Italian project Paul Barry. On stage, he came along with dancers Sylvana Simons and Iris Loppies.

If You Leave Me Now featured backing vocals from Johnny Kelvin and Ingrid Simons.

In 1998 CB Milton completed his third album From Here To There and currently achieved massive airplay on all these tracks in his home territory the Benelux. Get Into My Life, What About Me, and his latest release Carry On gave CB Milton the chance to project himself as a pop artist where in the past he was considered as a dance artist.

The last and fourth single from CB Milton's most recent album From Here To There was released in Belgium on February 15th 1999.

2001 : CB Milton released a new single in The Netherlands. It's a collaboration with the dutch trance-DJ Mark van Dale : a Discohousetrack uing the vocals of CB Milton. The title is Something Going On under the name of Mark van Dale ft. CB Milton. Stanley Foort contributed to the lyrics.

2002 : CB Milton released a new single called Friendly Morning Sky.

2007 : he took part to the multicultural project 08001 based Barcelona under his own name Clarence Bekker. On their album Voragine, he sung on the track Jungle, a combination of rock and world music.

2008 : he did vocals on Tikaro's single Shine On Me. He also contributed to a collective cover of Stand By Me by the Playing For Change foundation.

2011 : CB Milton's hit It's A Lovin Thing was remixed and re-released as Phil Wilde feat. CB Milton - Loving Thing

2012 : he released a new album under the name Clarence Bekker. Produced by Mark Johnson and Reggie McBride, this album was recorded in Groove Masters Studio in Santa Monica and in The Village Recording Studios in Los Angeles (California, USA).
