Alfred Lloyd was born in Manchester, Jamaica in a little town called Spaulding. He is the first of six children. He has four surviving siblings. Alfred’s early musical influences include the famous Bob Marley, Dennis Brown and especially Gregory Isaacs. Rather than following an Artiste as in becoming a ‘fan’, Alfred prefers to listen to and buy those songs that sound good or appeal to him. Alfred Lloyd spent his secondary school years boarding at Clarendon College in Chapelton, Jamaica. He was later to do a stint studying business at CAST as the institution was then known. His first published song was entitled ‘unconditionally’. This was recorded by Deborah Glasgow for Gussie Clarke back in 1989. As a youngster then the potential was good as the sky was the limit. He was working with a producer who could not do anything wrong, putting out hit after hit after hit. Alfred later migrated to the USA though and lost that contact with Gussie Clarke. He tried producing stuff on his own but this did not work out the way that he would like at least not until he decided to go back to Jamaica and started to record his music there.
Alfred Lloyd is not a band, group or organization. He is an individual whose thoughts and ideas transcend music and the routine of life. He believes that the word conformity is used to describe lesser mortals who continue to do what is expected of them and who never try to do anything else. He works full time at the moment at a job that he enjoys (rare but true) but sees that as a means to an end and not as an end in itself. He has a never say die attitude that he applies to all aspects of his life. Nowhere can this be seen more than in his musical career to date. He has had to overcome many obstacles over the years but continues to trod on when many others would have (and many may already have) quit and resign themselves to the daily grind to do what they think is expected of them.
