As with most independent musicians these days, every drop of our own money goes into each new recording… we love making music for our fans, family and friends! But we can’t do it all alone! There are producers, designers, manufacturers and other musicians to pay and then all the marketing and promotions that it takes to ensure it’s success!

“The one thing about music is you never know where the journey will take you!” – Alvin often shares this thought with his students as a music educator. Alvin began as a drummer but found that he also enjoyed the sound and feel of other instruments. He now plays drums, guitar, alto/tenor sax, and piano as well as sings lead and background vocals on numerous works.
“As a child I’d hear a song and ask myself what is the composer trying to say? How can I get into their head as a listener?” Composition came early in the form of instrumentals and continued with ensemble works of various genres. Alvin now composes and arranges music for his own solo career, for other artists and for TV and Film.
Being a life long learner, Alvin ventured into audio engineering for live sound. While earning a Bachelor of Science Degree in Music Education, Alvin worked on acquiring knowledge in the field of recording by working with various independent artists in both commercial and non-commercial studios.
“People usually ask me what is my favorite style of music . . . I like many genres that stretch across numerous decades”. From classical to Jazz to Hip Hop and beyond, Alvin enjoys the arts forms as a listener and artist. Musically, he has performed Classical, Gospel, Rock, Pop, Country and Jazz. His influences include but are not limited to Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Quincy Jones, Stevie Wonder, Earth Wind and Fire and many more.
