About Me

Donald Alford II is a husband to the amazing Rasheeda Nicole Alford and father of three to Dajia Alford, Donald Alford III, & DeVaughn Alford.

Donald is no ordinary bass guitar player. The soul and expression that he gained from growing up in church, gained him notoriety which landed him tours with gospel & r&b greats such as the Isley Brothers, Kirk Franklin, Fred Hammond, Marvin Sapp, Yolanda Adam, Smokie Norful, Donald Lawrence, J. Moss, Walter Hawkins, and Vashawn Mitchell.

The Chicago native, Donald Alford II not only toured with many artists; but has been able to accompany many on stage such as Pattie Labelle, Mary Mary, The Clark Sisters, Donnie McClurkin, Tramaine Hawkins, The Winans, Hezekiah Walker and Kim Burrell. As his musical demand grew, he began writing and producing music with an infusion which included all of the various genres’ he’d heard throughout his life.

Being in the right place, at the right time, and with the right music soon gained him musical credit as a songwriter, composer and producer for artist’s such as Keyshia Cole “Trust” (Different Me), Syleena Johnson “Be Me” (Labor Pains Chapter 4) and Charlie Wilson “Supa Sexxy.” Donald Alford II is being honored at ASCAP’s 23rd Annual Rhythm & Soul Music Awards, recognizing the song “TRUST” as one of the top ASCAP songs on the 2009 year-end charts. Donald was also nominated for a grammy for the song “Supa Sexxy”.

After playing on live recordings with a number of artists from 2003 thru 2010 he felt it was time for him to produce his own record. In May of 2010, Alford completed an independent Inspirational Jazz project entitled “Chasing Dreams”. This project resonates the sound and influence of instrumental jazz greats, that have touched many lives around the world; and “Chasing Dreams” will do just that.
After his 1st album release, he released his second project “Dream Movement” in 2011, and his current release of 2018 “1984 The Dream Trilogy”
Now Donald, has answered the called to the ministry of Jesus Christ; and him and his beautiful family are walking in the will of God. This is the first of many projects that will be released to bless the world.
