Congratulations to Dove Award-winning, Grammy-nominated gospel trio, Virtue, on the debut of their new single, “Walk It Out”. Today, they appeared on the Rickey Smiley Show, where the single, written by myself and Latrese Bush (produced by Tagteam), was VERY well received. What an honor to share with these talented ladies, stay tuned!
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 →
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.

2014 is off to an AMAZING START. On the top of my list of things to celebrate is the birth of my beautiful and healthy baby girl, Greer Lilliana Garrett. Family is my core motivation, and I thank God for adding another angel to my life. Continue reading →
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.
Congratulations to the Grammy-nominated Alvin Garrett for his stellar contribution to what many are calling an instant classic and a sure-pick for the 2014 Grammys. In its first week alone, Joe’s new album, “DOUBLE BACK: Evolution of R&B” hit #1 on the Billboard R&B charts, #1 on the Billboard Independent Album charts, #4 on the billboard R&B/Hip-hop albums chart, and #6 on the Billboard top 200 albums chart!!!!

2013 is off to an amazing start for me as a songwriter. Currently, I have two songs on the Urban and Urban AC charts that I’ve co-produced and written: “I’d Rather Have A Love”- Performed by Joe, and “Make A Little Room” performed by Jarvis. I’m so grateful to be able to not only share my music with my own voice through my album, but through the voices of other AMAZING artists. Continue reading →
I’m excited to announce my very first promotional tour called “The Love & Exposure Tour.” I’m elated to have the opportunity to share the music from my debut CD, “Expose Yourself,” with as many people as possible. The past few months, I’ve been doing some serious songwriting and production (some of which I’m very excited to be working with). Now, I’m ready to hit the road and kick off 2013 with some Love & Exposure. See You Soon!
