Much like the piano men that have gone before him, Alan Hewitt has made his living painting musical tapestries about the lives of others. With his charasmatic stage presence and rugged good looks, this Berklee polished musician began his career singing in the club scenebut quickly graduated to the production room, where he had the honor of working as a producer alongside Maurice White of Earth Wind and Fire (EWF) for over half a decade with the Greatest Hits album going platinum in 2000. However, it was co-writing and piano/organ contributions on the platinum record Cherrie Pie with Warrant in 2004 that would solidify Hewitt as a monster musical talent capable of grossing genres.
From artists like Donny Osmond to foundations like the JFK Center, Hewitt's list of record production credits as both a producer and a recording artist spans across the various major labels and genres with over 12 million records sold. A first call producer for a long list of major film and television productions, Hewitt's credits include National Lampoon's Van Wilder, Bridget Jones: The Edge of Reason, Survivor, MTV, Access Hollywood, Entertainment Tonight and is a favored composer for the Oprah Winfrey Show (including Oprah's Big Give).
