Gifted and versatile are two words that best describe singer, songwriter, musician, producer, composer & actor Alvin Frazier. Born and raised in Cleveland, Ohio, Alvin has been singing since the age of two and pecking at the keys since the age of three.
Over the years, and without formal training, Alvin would go on to learn to play the piano, guitar, bass and drums. Outside of being a singer and self-taught musician, Alvin is a songwriter and he uses that talent for crafting his heartfelt lyrics and intertwining them with his infectious grooves and beautiful melodies. Alvin’s musical journey has been extensive and that is the key to his diversity as a vocalist / musician / producer and arranger. Alvin attributes his success and development of his craft to his faith and devotion to Jesus Christ.
For the past 5 years Alvin has been gradually gaining ground with listeners around the world via the web through his “official” website www.alvinfraziermusic.com in which his current and future releases will be available. The CD can be found on websites for purchase and download across the globe. In the Spring of 2008, Alvin took his message of love & faith on the road starting with a successful AFE tour of East Asia with Smooth Jazz saxophonist Shelby Brown to promote his 2006 debut release, “Love & Faith: Vol. I”. Alvin is currently in the studio putting the finishing touches to his sophomore album “A Wonderful Love: Love & Faith Vol. II”scheduled for release in January 2013.
Alvin has built a reputation for being a dynamic performer and entertainer who leaves his audiences spellbound. Fusing the sounds of R&B, Soul & Jazz with a message of faith, love & hope, Alvin is able to captivate even the most skeptical person with his unique delivery and presentation. His shows are a truly a production.
While working as a solo artist, Alvin also found the time to tour for a year as a lead singer of the Christian Pop acapella group Praise-apella, record an album with them and produce songs for other artists as well along with performing with his groups The joshua Trio & The Concept. If that wasn’t enough, he also produced, arranged & scored music for 3 stage plays. To say that alvin frazier is one of “The Hardest Working Men in Show business” would be an understatement. He is the definition of a “true” artist.
In Fall 2011 after an 8-year hiatus, Alvin decided to rekindle his passion for acting. Since that time, Alvin has become an in-demand actor with numerous appearances on stage, television and independent film. A star on the rise, alvin frazier is a man to watch out for…
