Michael Jackson, the King of Pop, once intoned, in a duet with Paul McCartney, the British musical icon, “I am a lover but not a fighter.” This phrase would be an apt description of Alan Cave who has captivated the hearts of most Haitian music aficionados, particularly female fans, for almost thirty years. For more than two decades, Alan has been the crooner-in-chief in the Haitian Music Industry (HMI). Even after all those years, his well-crafted songs have never lost their luster. His most recent double album, Timeless, is a case in point. His numerous ballads always have an uncanny ability to enchant or transport the listeners to a higher plane where they could escape either their daily routines or forget about any burden that life might throw at them.
