My name is Alvin Perkins and I am a native of Kansas City, MO. I have been in the music business for about 25 years in some capacity. I started out as a musician in the church as a drummer and transitioned to bass guitarist. I currently play keyboards and a music director at a church here in Kansas City, MO

I offer remote professional mixing, mastering sessions, and I arrange and compose tracks. I'm very versatile because I have a whole team including musicians , drummers, and singers in which I utilize on projects. I've been producing/engineering for about 20 years and ready to use my expertise with your next project. God Bless!!
