Alvin Anthony (Big Management/ ASCAP songwriter-publisher/ The Recording Academy) is a songwriter, producer, A&R, DJ 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. In February 2016, Alvin signed a publishing contract with Big Management to write, cowrite and produce songs for some of the worlds most popular artists and producers. Alvin produces and records out of his Upper East Side studio and is known for his pulse on pop music and breaking music. Alvin’s DJ sets contain tasteful throwbacks, the hits of today and breaking music that you’ll be sure you heard first!
