Alvaro Morello

After graduating Magna Cum Laude from Arizona State University with a degree in Music Composition and an internship with JSM Music in New York, Alvaro Morello moved to Los Angeles to build his career in film, television, and song composition. As a songwriter for hire, his talent brought him to the attention of Universal Music and the Univision Music Group, where he penned songs for their stable of musical artists.  As a singer songwriter in his own right, Al’s songs have added to the musical intensity of the hit Hulu series “East Los High”, already approaching its third season, with more of his tracks on board.


Broadening his musical palette to include film and television main title and underscore music, Al’s melodic lines and rhythms have given an added creative element in television programming broadcast over networks as diverse as NBC, Telemundo, HBO, Showtime, and Hulu.  You can find the funkified beats of his theme to the hit TruTV series “Operation Repo” as a network staple.


The musical score for the independent film “Tortilla Heaven” (starring George Lopez) features Al’s most whimsical and playful music to date.


Alvaro continues his musical discoveries from his recording studio playground in L.A.!
