Alvin Gene grew up in Hartford,Connecticut (United States). He grew up singing songs by the Jackson 5, Temptations, Kool and The Gang and many other ole school artists. Although he claims himself to be a ole funkmaster with beats in the tradition of Cameo, George Clinton, James Brown, and others, he can also slow it down with smooth slow songs in the tradition of Marvin Gaye, Barry White, Isaac Hayes and many more. He decided to release his first song as an indie artist with a smooth slow r&b blues sound in a song titled "She Gonna Find It" published by CD Baby. With the support of his beautiful wife Deborah and his son Alvin III, who kept pushing him to get his music out, Alvin Gene has finally arrived.
