‘Home’ coming: Chris Alvarado releasing new album on vinyl

Published: Thursday, April 18, 2013 at 01:53 PM.

Alvarado said he plays what he likes, and what his audience wants to hear, which consists of what he terms "acoustic songwriter stuff."

"I sound a lot like John Mayer," he says of his sound.

Alvarado writes his own songs and performs those of others. But on his album, the material is totally his.

Alvarado released his first album last year, self-titled "Chris Alvarado," which can be found on iTunes, Pandora Radio, and other online retailers.

He chose to title his second after a song on this album.

" 'Home' is where I am at this point in my life and I'm comfortable," he said of the choice.

As for what inspires him to create music or write new lyrics, Alvarado said it's social things, watching events around him, "love issues we have all experienced," and society.
