THE BIO AN MISSION OF ALAN CAVE
 
Born on February 27 in Brooklyn, New York. I spent most my adolescent years in Port-au-Prince, Haiti. During the 1970s, I often accompanied my father, Syto Cave (playwright writer, novelist, actor and director) on tours to France, Canada and the southeastern Caribbean Islands (Martinique, Guadeloupe, St. Lucia). My mother, Yanick Jean, painter, decorator, poet and novelist, states that she always knew I had a taste to write and create. Surrounded by people who loved the arts, and born to a family of entertainers, I had no choice but to follow their example. 

While my friends were occupied with common adolescent issues, I was constantly playing the guitar, writing lyrics and melodies that seemed beyond my age. My first performance came while on tour with my father, one of the actors suddenly fell ill and I was asked to sing the song La Personne, written by dad and my idol Boulo Valcourt. My performance must have pleased the audience. The cheers and ovation raised the desire for a music career. I didn't know I could sing until, I got a standing ovation! By the end of that summer,I was a household name in the Eastern Caribbean. In the middle of 1987, a long time friend, Wuydens Joseph, of the popular group Papash, convinced me to audition for lead of a new band that was forming named ZIN. The band leaders Alex Abellard and Eddy St. Vil were working on releasing their debut album Fem Vole.

At the age of 21, I rehearsed for the band and according to the band's Maestro, Abellard, upon hearing my voice which he could only described as "unique" :), is quoted as stating to guitarist and partner Eddy St. Vil "we need that voice on our side and not against us". (Thanks guys) Nineteen years later, the songwriting skills and music of the group Zin (me, Alex Abellard and Eddy St. Vil) and its 11 band members continue to hypnotize the public with sweet ballads, and traditional Haitian Kompa grooves mixed with the sound of Reggae, R&B, and Zouk. I am also a prolific songwriter with a catalogue of songs and unreleased recordings in English, French, and Creole. My inspiration is life and good people, they make you want to do more and give your best.

I want to be remembered more as a writer and composer than a singer, because I am passionate about writing lyrics. Discipline keeps you at the top, that combined with hard work and commitment are the formula to success. I perform a lot in the French Caribbean and in Europe. I worked and collaborated with some of the biggest Haitian, French and Zouk artist, such as Malavoi, Mario DeVolcy, Tanya St. Val, N'Jie, Zouk Tenor and so on. In 1993, I launched my first solo album "Lage'm", which was an enormous success, it includes hits such as Ma Rose and Nan Nannan. In 2001, came by second solo album, "Se Pa Pou Dat" which transcended the barriers of language and cultural sound. From Japan, Africa to South America, all who listened were mesmerized by a sound that was unfamiliar but yet captivating with lyrics and music. The album which consists of 13 hits, such as 365 Jou, Please Baby, Se Pa Pou Dat, M'tombe. The Best of Alan Cave was released in early 2004. In mid-2004, came Collabo. Again this CD was a hit that infiltrated the music industry with hits like Yereswa, J'ai Besoin de Toi, Fanm Dous Mwen and Falling In April 2007, I released my long awaited solo album "De La Tete aux Pieds". It is a CD for ages and all lovers.

I have two brothers and two sisters, Syto Cave Jr. (formerly of Lakol), Wladimir Cave, Gaelle Auguste and Sereine Leon. On June 18, 1999, I married my long time girlfriend Myrtho Polo in a private ceremony. On September 1, 2000, we renewed our commitment in an elaborate wedding ceremony at Saint Joachim and Anne Church, in Queens Village, NY. We have a (5) year son named Cameron Alan Cave . In 2001, my wife Myrtho Cave and I founded the "The Alan Cave Music Educational Fund" (ACMEF) The fund is dedicated to promoting music and assists deserving students in higher education. (look for it online soon) I try my best to give back some of the blessing I have been given. Fame and popularity will not change who I am. My biggest dream right now, is to perform in Africa. The public will never get anything less than the best from me. You allow me to do what I love and for that I am grateful.
