Dancehall fans better know Albert Anthony Richards as Alley Cat. Born and raised in Denham Town, Kingston, [Jamaica], Alley Cat got his break into the business through Wayne Wonder. He recalls, "I was at Penthouse studios in Cross Roads and they has an audition and Wayne Wonder said, ‘Dis youth look like a yout' weh have talents,’ and Wayne Wonder put me on and I did a song and it mash up de place.”

At 24, Alley Cat has not looked back since. He writes 98% of his lyrics, has produced a track for his forthcoming album and has had a hit tune, “Hot Gal.” His new album is entitled, Life, and he says it has, “Songs about people from the ghetto.” This is due for release as soon as he has found the right deal.

Most people will be familiar with Alley Cat as he was a part of the Shocking Vibes camp until a recent split. When asked why he left Shocking Vibes, he said, "Basically it was like some personal ting to do wid my career. Is just like me feel like me coulda reach to a higher level not being in Shocking Vibes cah Shocking Vibes did probably have too much artist to concentrate on. I did feel from all de response from de fans dem, I could hold my own, so I just decided I was gonna get new management and move on from there.”

Well, Alley Cat definitely moved on and is now with Xtra Large being managed by Brenda Hamilton and he has True Blue Family working as his road managers promoting his tunes on radio as well as street promotion.

During his career so far, Alley Cat has worked with numerous producers such as Dave Kelly, Donovan Germaine, King Jammys, Jeremy Harding and Rookie Productions. He has also worked with quite a few artists, including Brian & Tony Gold, Beenie Man, Chico, Baby Cham and Wayne Wonder.

Alley Cat feels good about what he has achieved so far in his career and says, “Me feel like me reach a far level still and me appreciate de level weh me reach, but me can go further. More heights to be reached.”
