Alvin Garrett’s Music: Listen / Buy




AG: The Solo R&B Artist

Along with his thriving career in the background as a songwriter, vocal arranger, and producer, Alvin Garrett has stepped out front in a very big way with his solo debut album, “Expose Yourself.” With a variety of Urban and Soulful R&B, Alvin has tastefully arranged and delivered an instant classic. This musical compilation takes you on a ride through the heart and mind of a Gentleman, and puts you in the mood to fully EXPOSE YOURSELF.  His single, “Never Gonna Find,” chronicles the emotions of a man that realizes that he’s found a love that is rare and needs to be preserved. Other songs such as “Make Love”, “To Be You With Me”, and “Let It Build” provide a sensual undertone for intimacy and relaxation. Ultimately, you can press play, sit back, relax, and enjoy the ride.

AG: The Grammy-nominated Songwriter/Producer

Alvin has been making his mark on the R&B Charts with singles written and arranged for Grammy Nominated Artist, Joe (“I Wanna Know,” “Stutter”).  The latest single blazing the charts is the song “Love & Sex Pt 2 feat Kelly Rowland”, winner of the 2014 BET Award for Best Independent R&B/Soul Performance. The original version of the song featured Fantasia and performed very well on the charts. The hit single, “I’d Rather Have A Love,” written by Garrett and performed by Joe, also made noise on the Billboard Urban AC charts.

AG: The Musician

As a musician, Alvin Garrett’s RnB roots trace back to the band, Just A Few Cats, from Birmingham, AL. The Cats first came together in the spring of 2000 to compete as a jazz band in a collegiate talent show. With a jazzy rendition of Marvin Gaye ‘s “What’s Going On”, The Cats were victoriously united as a musical family that has been together for over 13 years now.


Alvin Garrett to Release New Single, “By Myself”

After releasing his debut album, Expose Yourself, in 2012, one may say that the Grammy-nominated songwriter took a break from the performing artist platform to write hits for other artists such as Joe. Although, his fans still boast that they listen to his first CD on a regular basis, it’s been a while since AG released music with his voice. But he has not lost the desire to tell his own story with his own voice. Actually, there’s a new passion and fire that has been building since his first release, and it will be on full display with his new single, “By Myself” featuring Ruben Studdard. Continue reading →


Alvin Garrett & Joe: A Winning Formula

After writing four songs on Joe’s 2013 release, “Doubleback: Evolution of R&B,” Alvin Garrett reconnected with the crooner for his 2014 release, “Bridges.”  The first album yielded two chart-topping singles, “I’d Rather Have a Love” and “Love & Sex” feat Fantasia, and a resurgence of Joe’s presence on the R&B scene. Maybe it’s the Alabama heritage shared by the two singer-songwriters. Maybe it’s the preacher’s kids connection. Who knows? All we know is that IT WORKS. The formula works. Continue reading →


AG Hitting The Road with Good Friend, Ruben Studdard

Alvin Garrett will be hitting the road in April 2014 as the bass guitarist for the “Meant To Be” Tour featuring Ruben Studdard and Lalah Hathaway. AG is going back to his roots as a bass guitarist to join his longtime friend, Ruben Studdard, as he promotes his new CD, “Unconditional Love.” Alvin and Ruben’s friendship dates back over 15 years, and their on-stage chemistry has always been electric. Of course, Alvin finds time on the road to keep writing those hits, but April is all about Rockin’ Out with Ruben.
