AFTER sitting in the background and writing songs for other artistes, Alpha One had an epiphany four years ago and decided to perform his compositions.
In 2018 he made his recording début with Cure and Poor is Not A Crime. This year the London-based singer-musician stepped on the gas and released a flurry of songs including Can't Trust Them, Fire Keep on Blazing, and Just That Little Vibe.
They have a live feel that Alpha One favours.
"I like to hear and feel every sound in tune with the melody, with my voice. It give me a vibe!" he exclaimed.
Born in Kingston, Alpha One has written songs for a number of artistes including Jahvinci, Peter G and Gappy Ranks. He finally took the plunge and began recording four years ago.
"After composing a demo for an artiste back in 2018 — basically writing and bringing together the instrumental aspects of the song and also voicing on the track — this inspired me to see that I could do this myself!" he revelaed excitedly.
Cure and Poor is Not A Crime whet his appetite for recording even more. Can't Trust Them, Fire Keep on Blazing and Just That Little Vibe capped a busy 2022 for Alpha One who has big plans for next year.
"My plan for my music is to become internationally known and for my music to be consumed worldwide," he said.
