Alvin Anthony (Big Management/ Mercy Sound) is a songwriter, producer, A&R, DJ, recording engineer and music teacher. Alvin’s early music career was spent performing as the lead singer and songwriter in rock bands and recording those songs at his home studio. Alvin decided to focus on production and songwriting when he realized how well he could collaborate with artists to bring their songs to the next level and collaborate on new songs as a co-writer, producer and/or engineer. Although he works with a lot of other artists on their songs, Alvin also produces and writes songs for himself as an artist. Alvin’s genuine talent for songwriting was first realized when he would win poetry contests as an adolescent. After he joined his first band, as a drummer, he started writing the songs lyrics from the singer’s melody lines. From then on, his songwriting and grasp of vocal melody continued to develop over countless projects. His production skills come both from years of experience producing and an education in Sound Design and Mixing and Mastering at Dubspot Music Production School in NYC, where he learned to mix from Grammy winning mix engineer Ariel Burojow. In February 2016, Alvin signed a publishing contract with Big Management to write, cowrite and topline for popular EDM artists and producers. Alvin began working at Mercy Sound Recording Studio in 2017 and produces and records there and out of his Upper East Side personal home studio. He is known for his pulse on pop music, breaking music, EDM, RnB, deep house, future house, chill out and Hip-Hop. Alvin’s DJ sets contain tasteful throwbacks, the hits of today and breaking music that you’ll be sure you heard first with Alvin.
