Donald Alford II -][- Dream MovementMP3– [Don J Music Productions, 2012]

Donald Alford II was no ordinary bass guitar player. The soul and expression that came from him gained him notoriety which landed him tours with gospel greats such as Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond, Marvin Sapp, Yolanda Adam, Smokie Norful, Donald Lawrence, J. Moss, Walter Hawkins, and Vashawn Mitchell.

Donald Alford II not only toured with many artists; but has been able to accompany many on stage such as Pattie Labelle, Mary Mary, The Clark Sisters, Donnie McClurkin, Tramaine Hawkins, The Winans, Hezekiah Walker and Kim Burrell. As his musical demand grew, he began writing and producing music with an infusion which included all of the various genres’ he’d heard throughout his life.

Being in the right place, at the right time, and with the right music soon gained him musical credit as a songwriter, composer and producer for artist’s such as Keyshia Cole “Trust” (Different Me), Syleena Johnson “Be Me” (Labor Pains Chapter 4) and Charlie Wilson “Supa Sexxy.” Donald Alford II is being honored at ASCAP’s 23rd Annual Rhythm & Soul Music Awards, recognizing the song “TRUST” as one of the top ASCAP songs on the 2009 year-end charts.

After playing on live recordings with a number of artists from 2003 thru 2010 he felt it was time for him to produce his own record. Donald Alford has just completed an independent Inspirational Jazz project entitled “Chasing Dreams” to be released May 2010. This project resonates the sound and influence of instrumental jazz greats, that have touched many lives around the world; and “Chasing Dreams” will do just that. -[Biography]-
