Alvah Music stems from the songwriting of Donny Fausner. This project is his solo gig apart from his band Myliye. The name Alvah comes from his grandfather, Alvah Ray Dailey, and is also Donny's middle name. Donny grew up moving around the country and started writing at a young age. Born in Hawaii, and spending the majority of his life in California, there is definitley an ocean influence that echoes throughout the songs. There are many different styles displayed throughout the album, everything ranging from Bosanova to Afro-Cuban. Surf rock to country tones, songs written for a couple friends weddings, songs written in the car driving down the coast looking for surf, and even a dixieland song written about a man sentenced to death by guillotine! Playing in the band is a very talented cast of characters. Dave Curtis, Davey Carano, Danny Campbell, James East, and Charlie Weller. With 20+ years of musical experience, the album is very tasteful.
