From A-list dancer to rising solo artist, Alvester Martin is reintroducing himself to audiences as a new man.
Clocking endless man hours to perfect his craft and become one the most sought after dancers in the industry—performing alongside the likes of Beyonce, Mariah Carey, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez and Queen Latifah—it was time for a change for Martin. “I’ve spent almost a decade learning, studying, and watching the greats, while silencing my own song,” he explained. “Don’t get me wrong, I am very grateful for the experience and opportunity. But this… my own music, it’s freedom.”
Breaking the mold, the multi-talented star has tapped into his musical talents, concluding his dance career to fully dedicate himself as a rising star with the help of Emagine/Universal Music Group. Martin’s debut release is the single, So High, from his upcoming album titled Love Me or Leave Me. The singer dishes, “I wear my heart and soul on my sleeves, and my music reflects that. My songs are universal stories of love, pain, hurt, heartache and joy, all put to music… real music.”
So High is nothing short of that. Melodic, smooth and soulful, Martin may just transition smoothly from dance to music, placing himself in the rankings of newcomer R&B guys taking the reigns. Take a listen below and see if Alvester’s latest single So High is your cup of tea.
