Singer/songwriter Alaine possesses a sweet voice, songwriting skills that show a depth of experiences and a smile that could brighten any day. Alaine studied classical piano for four years and began writing songs at a very early age. Her talents as a singer and actress were recognized while she was a child and secured her roles in numerous Jamaican television programs and commercials, radio jingles, and theatrical productions. By age nine Alaine had been a Red Cross Ambassador, performed in several cabaret shows and national events, hosted a popular children's television show, and landed herself a role in the movie 'Clara's Heart' starring Whoopi Goldberg. After graduating with an honors degree in Management and Psychology, Alaine moved to New York where she juggled working in an Investment Bank (JPMorgan) while pursuing her musical career. She sang hooks for Roc-A-Fella recording artist, Cam'Ron, in the songs, “Live My Life” (Leave Me Alone) from the album Come Home With Me (Roc-A-Fella 2002), and “Yeo” from Music Inspired by Scarface (Def Jam, 2003). After receiving two promotions at JP Morgan, she would no longer have the time to dedicate to her music career and so she had to choose between the security of a fulltime job and the uncertainty that came with pursuing music. She took a leap of faith and chose to return to Jamaica to pursue music fulltime
