AG: The Man – The Musician

Alvin Garrett, journeyed to Birmingham, AL from Tuscaloosa, AL in 1996 to attend Samford University on a football scholarship. Over the next four years, Garrett earned a BSBA in Business Management and made Birmingham his permanent residence after graduation. After successfully working in Corporate America for a few years, Alvin took an intrepid leap of faith and resigned in order to pursue a career in the music business. Less than a year after resigning, Alvin was touring as the bass guitarist with his bandmate, Ruben Studdard, with the American Idol 2 Tour . Both Alvin and Ruben were founding members of the band, Just A Few Cats. After the AI2 Tour in 2003, Garrett continued on with Studdard as his bassist and musical director. While touring the country with his good friend, Alvin Garrett continued to hone his artistic skills that would ultimately expand his talents into the world of production and songwriting.

AG: The Grammy-Nominated Songwriter/Producer

Although you may not have known it, there’s a good chance you’ve heard and felt Alvin Garrett’s signature in much of the R&B and Gospel music you love. In 2012, Garrett was nominated for a Grammy for his contribution to Gospel Album of the Year candidate, Trin-I-Tee 5:7. That year, he also won a Stellar Award with Gospel artist, Deitrick Haddon.

AG: The Artist

Along with his thriving career in the background as a songwriter, vocal arranger, and producer, Alvin Garrett made the artistic transition in 2012 with his solo debut album, “Expose Yourself.” His first album contains a variety of Soulful and Sensual R&B that is still revered today by many as an “R&B Classic.” The industry’s best-kept secret and multi-talented Alvin Garrett has recently sent an inspirational shockwave throughout the land with his hit single, “By Myself”. This powerful and inspiring song is in rotation and currently being played on Urban AC, Gospel, Blues, and Southern Soul stations. He is currently working on a new project entitled, “Together,” to be released in 2016, and will include his hit song, “By Myself.”


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.
