From sharing the stage with Parliament / Funkadelic, Chanté Moore, The Ohio Players & more, Cleveland-native singer/songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and actor brings his own R&B, soul & jazz sound in a captivating presentation for BLU debut!
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.
A self-taught musician, alvin would teach himself to play 4 instruments; piano, guitar, bass & drums. Growing up with 2 musician parents it was inevitable that young alvin would also pursue a path in music and the arts. Over the years he would do just that, forming music groups throughout his formative years ranging in styles from R&B, Hip-Hop, Gospel to Jazz.
alvin has built a reputation for being a dynamic performer and entertainer who leaves his audiences spellbound. Rooted in a tradition that fuses the sounds of R&B, Soul and Jazz with a message of faith, love & hope, alvin is able to captivate audiences of all ages and demographics with his unique delivery and ultra-smooth, yet soulful presentation.
For the past 9 years alvin has been gradually building a following worldwide via the web through his “official” websitewww.alvinfraziermusic.com along with other social media sites. In that time alvin has released 2 albums as a vocalist, “Love & Faith: Vol. 1” (2006) and “A Wonderful Love: Love & Faith Vol. 2” (2013) and has produced music for various independent artists. In 2008, alvin took his music overseas with a successful tour of Japan & South Korea with the Armed Forces. alvin has shared the stage with Parliament / Funkadelic, The Ohio Players, Chanté Moore, Eric Roberson & Kenny Lattimore.
As an actor, alvin has recently completed filming for 2 upcoming appearances as a musician (art imitating life), the highly-anticipated Miles Davis biopic “Miles Ahead” with Don Cheadle and in the Lifetime film “With this Ring” with Jill Scott, Regina Hall, Eve & Gabrielle Union. 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” entertainer / artist and this is only the beginning as 2016 is shaping up to be a monumental year.
