A YOUNG Vale singer is set to release his first song on Bonfire Night – at the age of just 12.

Alfie King, from Alexandria, is releasing his first debut “I’m No Liar” on November 5.

The schoolboy musician has been working on the song since early March this year.

He told the Reporter: “It is the first song I wrote since lockdown started.

“I am so proud of it. It is a really good track.

“It took hours to get right in the studio, but I would say it is worth it. I put all my effort and energy to make it what it is now.”

Alfie explained that the song has a hidden deeper personal meaning that he follows and wants others to do the same.

He said: “The song is about showing others that you shouldn’t lie in anything you do. It is mainly about people being as truthful as you can with someone.

“I am trying to send the message of being true to yourself and not lying about yourself by changing aspects of you or personality for someone.

“At the end of the day you should never lie to be successful.

“You should be successful in your own right because you worked hard for it.”

He decided that the track also would feature his musically talented family.

His father plays the bass and his elder brother plays the electric guitar.

During lockdown Alfie and his musical partner Jack Mullen stood outside care homes around Dumbarton and the Vale singing for the elderly residents as well as raising money for CHAS’ Robin House in Balloch.

The young singer has also faced the impact that the Covid-19 pandemic has had on his music journey.

He said: “I know I am young, but the music industry has really been hit hard by the pandemic. I really want to go back out there to sing with friends and go gigging, but I know I can’t just yet.

“The coronavirus has caused some popular venues to shut and they can be the lifeline for aspiring musicians as they can’t have customers.

“It is a shame, but hopefully we can find some sense of normality and get back to that soon safely.”

Alfie continued: “In the mean time I want to thank everyone for their continued support throughout my journey.

“It really does mean a lot to me.”

“I’m No Liar” will be made available to the public on Spotify and Apple Music on November 5.
