Story

Most of the people clicking on this page will already know my story but those who do not here is a brief synopsis . Alpha were founded by Corin Dingley and Andy Jenks back in 1995 and formed a formidable music partnership that would eventually catch the attention of Massive Attack who promptly signed them to their Virgin Label Melankolic. Swiftly recruiting the amazing vocal talents of Wendy Stubbs, Martin Barnard and Helen White. The debut album was recorded and Come From Heaven was released to the world in 1997 to outstanding critical acclaim including adoration from the likes of Radiohead, Madonna, Prince and Jarvis Cocker amongst other notable musicans. Alpha have changed direction over the years with the departure of Andy, Helen and Martin but gaining the talents of Kelvin Swaby now of The Heavy and the incredible Hannah Collins. However the music has not stopped being made with the last release ' Loving Nobody' in 2015.

Times however have been hard and there has been a stark change in the music industry and I am now unable to make a full time living from music and now run a yurt village in the south west of france. Sadly to fund this project my studio had to go and I have been unable to do what I love the most making music. I am so grateful for the love of all the fans over the past twenty years and their need for more Alpha tunes in their lives.

I keep getting asked "When is the next Alpha release", so after discussions on Facebook we have decided to crowd fund the release of future Alpha music.

It's quite simple, I just need a computer, logic and interface to get going, as soon as we reach over £2000 I can get the basic parts to start producing music and your copy of 'Lost in a Garden of Clouds'.

Many thanks Corin.
