FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE:
“alvin frazier gears up for the release of his new single and highly-anticipated album. Putting the “Soul” back into Soul music”
Sitting in his recording studio listening to the final mixes of his highly anticipated sophomore release “A Wonderful Love: Love & Faith Vol. 2”, alvin was asked to use one word to describe the long-awaited new album.
“Relevant. I could’ve used a few other musical terms like: soulful, melodic & timeless, but to be a bit philosophical, relevant would be more befitting. When I released my first project “Love & Faith: Vol. 1”, 6 years ago there weren’t any albums that dealt with love and relationships by way of faith, but in my travels touring here in the U.S. & overseas I discovered that so many people were longing to hear music with depth again on the radio…real music.“
Having produced most of the album himself, alvin’s musical tastes & influences are very evident throughout. The album’s first single “Something to Remember”, a duet co-written and performed with Cassandra Woodard is a great mid-tempo song that will instantly become your jam from the moment you put it on with it’s old school feel reminiscent of those great late 70’s early 80’s love ballads that used to have you feeling good when you turned on the radio or put the needle on the record. Destined to become not only a hit, but an anthem for any couple who made a commitment in the name of love to be and stay together.
“The whole sentiment of the album is what I call a soundtrack for life. I approach the theme from various dynamics. Love, faith and hope ties into and / or effects every situation, every relationship in some form or another by the presence of or the lack thereof. We are living in a time where people need hope, faith and real love. That love can only be found through a relationship with GOD….real talk. “A Wonderful Love: Love & Faith Vol. 2” is a collection of tunes that deals with love by way of faith. Simply put, prepare yourselves to hear Soul music for the soul at its best!!
alvin recently played a return engagement at legendary songwriting and performing duo, Ashford & Simpson’s Sugar Bar in New York City on October 12, 2012 which also served as the “unofficial” release of his new album with a limited run being pressed for the NYC performances.
