Alan Cavé was born in Brooklyn, NY on February 27. His father is the well known poet, writer, and art director, Ernst (Syto) Cavé and his mother is the late Yanick Jean Cavé, actress, writer, editor, and painter.

By mid 1987, a long time friend, Wydens Joseph who was with the group Papash told Alan that a new group ZIN was looking for a lead singer. Cavé auditioned for the lead.
