Grammy-Nominated Alvin Garrett Inspires with Music for the Soul
Singer Alvin Garrett wants to inspire.
While the Grammy-nominated songwriter still wants to make you groove to the bass line of a song, he also wants you to hear the message of positivity and hope on his latest album “This HILL.”
“My craft is inspiration,” 41-year-old Garrett said on a recent Friday night in June before taking the stage for his album-release party. “I call my music inspirational soul.”
The title song and lead-off single, “This HILL,” pays tribute to the lessons he was taught growing up, which helped shape his relentless spirit and pursuit of his goals. It pays homage to the message he received from his father on not just hoping to achieve something but working hard to get the things he wanted in life.
“Because of hope, I have the inspiration to pursue what I love at the risk of loss,” said Garrett, a founding member of Birmingham R&B group Just a Few Cats.
