Grammy®-nominated singer/songwriter/musician, Alvin Garrett, and The Carolinas Music Group is pleased to announce the release of “I Know It’s You”, a song to encourage the families and caregivers of those affected by Alzheimer’s disease. “I Know It’s You”, co-written by American Idol winner, Ruben Studdard, is being released this month in conjunction with National Alzheimer’s Disease Awareness Month and National Family Caregivers Month.
“There’s an overwhelming need for comfort and emotional healing for millions of caregivers fighting alongside the 47 million people living with this disease”, says Garrett, who has watched family and friends deal with the emotional, physical, and financial toil of caring for a loved one. According to The Alzheimer’s Association (www.alz.org), 59% of Alzheimer’s caregivers rate their emotional stress as “high” or “very high”, and 40% of family caregivers suffer from depression.

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. 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 →
