Alpha's love for music started within the Calypso arena when he was just fifteen and a high school student. At the time he participated in several school competitions which he won, leading some individuals who were involved in the senior calypso tents in Saint Lucia to draw him in. At the senior Calypso level Alpha made a mark from day one, making it to the semi finals of the national calypso competition. But he says he always had a hunger for more and felt that Calypso was too seasonal. And so in 2004 along with the band "Fondacion" (Creole for Foundation) he composed the soca number "Down De Road" which went on to win the Road March title in Saint Lucia. It would be the first of many titles for the young singer.
