Marion Heath Moore (ALBM Productions)
Born on February 10th 1976 in the small town of Rock Hill, SC it did not take the parents and family members of Marion Heath Moore long to realize that his life was going to be dedicated to music. He spent hours on end playing a stack of 45s over and over again. All the great Motown artists, disco, and rock were all in the mix. At the age of six he started studying the piano and a year later the guitar. Blessed by having the best teachers in the area they showed him the importance of studying classical and jazz, but also encouraging him to follow his true love of pop, rock, soul, funk, hip-hop, metal, and even techno. While in middle school Marion started to write his own original songs. His father soon noticed that he needed a way to record his ideas. A trip to a local pawnshop provided the basic tools needed to record demos. (A drum machine, keyboard, and a four-track tape recorder.) All his free time was spent composing song after song. After wearing out two four-track tape recorders and composing almost a hundred songs Marions high school band instructor entered him into a national songwriting competition for students. There was only one problem; he needed a pro sounding recording. His father called the biggest studio in the area (Reflection Sound Studios) and learned that two young college graduates from Berklee Collage Of Music had just opened a small Midi Recording studio called Studio B. (Audio engineer Dave Harris and film composer Mike Lawler) That first recording session changed his life forever. That was the moment when he knew that the recording studio was going to be his life. From 1991 to 1994 most of the money Marion made (A paper route and playing guitar and keyboards in local cover bands) went to booking time at the studio. The guys at Studio B started teaching him the basic fundamentals of Midi and audio engineering. They also told him that if he wanted recordings to be his career he had to go to college. In 1994 he packed his bags and headed up to Boston to attend Berklee Collage Of Music. After a year he then transferred to Belmont University in Nashville, TN. During his first semester at Belmont he got an internship at a small publishing company Patrick Joseph Music that quickly turned into a job. This provided him with the opportunity to work with some of Nashvilles most sought after A-list writers (Kim Carnes, Matraca Berg, Troy Verges, & Tim Mensy just to name a few) and to learn first hand how the music publishing industry really worked. While at PJM he started co-engineering and co-producing rock, metal, and blues bands and artist with producer / engineer Mark Ermlick. (Forty Thieves, John Mohead, Bill Miller, & Hollie Poole) In 1996 Marion also began to work with songwriter / producer / screenplay writer Terry Harkleroad and songwriter / producer Terry Bell on a host of different pop, country, urban, rock, and electronic music artist. (Smooth Generation, Sandy Madaris, Michelle Rentfro, Peter Penrose, & Paula Chavis) Also that same year he started his own production company ALBM Recordings. The focus was working one-on-one writing, arranging, programming, engineering, and producing solo artist. (Keith Urban, Todd Tabor, Vince Melamed, & Greg Barnhill) In 1999 Universal Music Group purchased Patrick Joseph Music. Marion decided it was time for a change and moved his production company to Daytona Beach, FL. His focus is now on working with independent artists / DJs, crafting beats for MCs, providing music for film/TV/games/advertising/web, and remixing. As a remixer his style has touched a wide array of artists. (Marcy Playground, Eminem, Britney Spears, The Crystal Method, Linkin Park, Peter Gabriel, Jason Moran, Snoop Dog, Underoath, Raheem DeVaughn, The Roots, John Legend, and Erykah Badu) In his own words, The Future Holds No Limits.
I use to play live, but now I only produce.

Marion Heath Moore Ten Years Of ALBM Productions
This project is the result of over twenty years of studying music/production and over ten years of making records; track after track and artist/band after artist/band.
As a producer, composer, recording engineer, programmer, musician, and most of all a major (major) fan of music I keep my ears and mind open to almost anything that catches my fancy!
I find inspiration in rock (Linkin Park, Slayer. Tool, Tom Petty, Chevelle), electronic (Josh Wink, DJ Tiesto, DJ Monk, DJ Self, DJ X, Rabbit In The Moon, AK 1200, Sasha & John Digweed), hip-hop (DJ Shadow, DJ Krush, Mos Def, Gang Starr, The Roots, Erick Sermon, A Tribe Called Quest, Chubb Rock), soul/r&b (Al Green, Al B Sure, Stevie Wonder), funk (George Clinton, Bootsy Collins), jazz (Medeski-Martin & Wood, Miles Davis, Branford Marsalis), old school country (Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Willie Nelson), blues (John Lee Hooker, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Son House, Robert Johnson), classical (Segovia, Beethoven, Gershwin), film (Gabriel Yared, Harold Faltermeyer, Ry Cooder), gospel (Take 6, Sounds Of Blackness, Be Be Winans), and pop (Mariah Carey, Janet Jackson, Prince, Sarah McLauchlan). If I listed every band, artist, producer, musician, songwriter, composer, recording engineer, and programmer that has shaped my music we would be here all day.
As you listen to these twenty instrumental tracks the one word I hope comes into your mind is fusion; pop mixed with classical, rock mixed with techno, drum & bass mixed with film music, and so on!
All these tracks were composed out of one hundred percent pure inspiration of all the music that touches my life daily.
