developed a passion for singing after seeing an old recording of Sam

London as a youth. His love for Ska rocksteady and reggae developed as
he was exposed to singers like John Holt, Marcia Griffiths, Don Carlos,
Dennis Brown, Frankie Paul, Michael Gordon, Keith Douglas, Thriller U,
Maxi Priest, and many more great artists.
Whilst Alpheus was living in Florida USA In 1997 he was discovered
by Tony Brevett of the famed vocal rocksteady group ‘The Melodians’.

STUDIO ONE Label in New York, where after honing his craft as a
session vocalist and singing various singles Alpheus recorded his debut
album ‘Quality Time’ which was released in 1999, on some of those
classic ‘Studio One ‘ Ska rocksteady rhythms. After Touring the USA and
learning his stage performance skills with talented artists like Everton
Blender and Richie Spice, Alpheus went on to sing a nice and even more
contemporary reggae album with ‘Special delivery label ‘ France in 2007.
Then came the delightful’ Roberto Sanchez produced singles, (7’’and
EP) “Two rocksteady riddims”-Dirty dozen and family rhythms. Alpheus
then progressed to sing his third critically and musically successful album
entitled ‘From Creation’ on A-lone label (lone ark) in 2011, also Roberto
