Born in Washington D.C., R&B Guitarist and Songwriter Dante Alston was known to have a penchant for melodies at a young age. With no formal training, Alston is entirely self-taught on guitar and composes many of his own instrumentals. Inspired by artists such as John Mayer and Ms. Lauryn Hill, his signature melodic acoustic approach can be found at the root of much of his music.

“Making music is more than just an expression of art for me,” says Alston, “...it’s almost like a form of therapy so I’m very protective of who’s involved in the writing and production process. Usually it’s just myself and an engineer... So I can appreciate the sensitivity of being invited to play on someone else's song, it's really an honor.”

Alston's signature styles merges traditional acoustic arpeggios with an alternative R&B flare.

  2. Review by Wendy J.

    I'm extremely happy with the tracks that Dante created for me - he's a wonderful musician, and not only fulfilled what I'd requested, but took the songs to the next level (at least). He's also super easy to work with - great communication, and he had my tracks completed sooner than I'd expected. Highly recommended!

    I’ve collaborated with Dante on two projects, one currently in the works. Not only is he professional, but he is amazingly talented. He is one of the top guitarist I know and I always go to him first. With nothing more than a few chords and a voice memo, he brought my idea to life. The reviews don’t lie. He’s worth every penny.

    You won't find a better ear or more creative guitarist and his songwriting is top notch. Just be ready to work. He's a serious artist and will keep working until it's exactly want you envisioned.
