"The whole sentiment of the album is what I call a soundtrack for life or Soullife music.” -- Alvin Frazier
Sitting in his recording studio listening to the final mixes of his highly anticipated sophomore effort “A Wonderful Love: Love & Faith Vol. 2”, Alvin Frazier gears up for the official release of his highly-anticipated album. Frazier was asked to use one word to describe the long-awaited new album. His answer…“Relevant.”
“I could’ve used a few other musical terms like: soulful, melodic and timeless,” said Frazier. “But, to be a bit philosophical, relevant would be more befitting. When I released my first project “Love & Faith: Vol. 1” six years ago, there weren’t any albums that dealt with love and relationships by way of faith. In my travels touring here in the U.S. and overseas, I discovered that so many people were longing to hear music with depth and sustenance again on the radio…real music.”
Having produced most of the album himself, Frazier’s musical tastes and influences are very evident throughout. The album’s first single “Something to Remember”, a duet co-written and performed with Cassandra Stewart 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 '70s early '80s love ballads that used to have you feeling good when you turned on the radio or put the needle on the record. Hit the airwaves this past fall and has become 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 or Soullife music,” he said. “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.
The official release date is set for Tuesday, Jan. 8 paired with the official CD release concert taking place at 8:30 p.m. at Nighttown, 12387 Cedar Road in Cleveland Heights on Saturday, Jan. 12. For tickets call 216.795.0550.
