Walk With Me

Far away but so close I feel the pain
We've managed to fall apart and there's nothing to pull us through
Here we are acting and playing the fools
Static is all around, I've lost all hope in you

If you could Walk with me just stop and look around
If I could make you see, the love that's all around

Another day with no place to run away
Love is a curious thing
Love leaves a bleeding heart

If you could Walk with me just stop and look around
If I could make you see, the love that's all around

Artist Biography

Chris Alvy has hit pause on The Super Fuzz, the band of which he is lead singer, guitarist and primary songwriter, to record a collection of songs he’s been pocketing during his Fuzzy tenure, titled Back to Square One.

The prolific songman is a native of Cuba but raised in Spain and Miami. After a baseball injury retired him from the minor leagues with The Yankees, Astros and White Sox, Chris Alvy turned to music and scored some studio time with South Florida producer and studio owner, Peter Paul. This would eventually lead to an administrative publishing deal with SONY ATV.

Collaborations followed in both writing and performing with national / international artists such as multi-million seller, Chayanne; Maria Conchita Alonso; Alto Reed (of Bob Seger's Siver Bullet Band) and others. Alvy would go on to become musical director for the Mira Quien Baila house band, Latin America’s answer to Dancing with the Stars.

But it was Chris’ stint with his rock band, The Super Fuzz, for which he might be best known. His style of power-pop landed the group a number of music festivals like Sunfest and International Pop Overthrow; and earned them support slots for national acts Soul Asylum, Sister Hazel, The Smithereens, etc. An abundance of these Super Fuzz tracks and additional Alvy solo work would find its way to the TV airwaves on syndicated shows like Access Hollywood and The Steve Harvey Show, to network prime-timers C.S.I. and Bones, and into cable favorites like American Pickers and Forged in Fire amongst many others.

Along the way, Alvy had been penning other compositions and he began stashing material that didn’t quite suit the Super Fuzz sound. Now, 20 years after launching his music career, Chris has returned to collaborate with his original colleague, Peter Paul – hence the album title, Back to Square One.

“It’s a departure from my traditional, high-energy rock and it’s rooted in a more singer-songwriter format,” admits Chris. Adopting influences from Americana and Bluegrass to Bossa-Nova, Beatlesque ballads, and some Power Pop, this album aptly showcases the full breadth of Alvy’s songwriting in a timeless, sonic quilt.
