Kalvin McClure is a man of many talents. Also known as “Big Kalvin”, Kalvin has a great
passion and talent for entertainment. As early as age 11, Kalvin knew he was a lover of all things
hip hop. By this time he was writing notebooks full of original songs and recording on his
karaoke machine. At 17 the performance bug bug bit him after his high school talent show in
1999 when his group singlehandedly shut down Callaway high for a day after their performance.
Ever since then he knew this is what he wanted to do. Kalvin pursued his dream, but realized he
needed a back up plan. Kalvin decided to attend Jackson state university. During his
matriculation at the university he worked as a DJ for WJSU, a jazz radio station on campus.
Kalvin graduated in 2007 from JSU with a bachelors degree in mass communications. With a
minor in history. After graduation Kalvin received a job at 16 WAPT News in Jackson, MS.
While working full time, Kalvin found ways to continue to work on his craft.

Many companies sought Kalvin for songwriting, recording, and even some acting, he worked
with EyeVox Entertainment in Ridgeland, MS. Kalvin worked on projects such as Primos
hunting calls commercial series, safety videos for the Mississippi State Troopers, and the local
Electric company training video. Kalvin also shot his first professional video with EyeVox for
the Madison county school district aimed at keeping students from dropping out of school called
Dream Weaver for MCEDA (Madison county economic development authority) which was
distributed to every child in the district. The last acting project kalvin pursued with EyeVox was
for a series called On The Lot for FOX. The short film was called Blindsided, which was viewed
by Steven Spielberg and Brett Ratner.

In 2009 Kalvin moved to Florida for better opportunity in music and his professional career. He
was hired at SNN6 in Sarasota,FL as a photographer, reporter, and sports news anchor. Though
his job he met a group of local film producers who would later help Kalvin with his second
professional music video for his original song call Gotta Get It. The film company’s name was
Faced Productions. They enlisted Kalvin for his writing skills for a film they were shooting
called Mangrove Slasher 2. Not only did Kalvin write the title song for the movie but he made a
cameo as a news reporter. The movie was featured at the Sarasota film festival. He also wrote a
song for a second movie the group was working on. Kalvin also appeared in a short film called
Pique for the Righteous Entertainment in 2011.

In 2013 Kalvin was given the opportunity to work with BFG Communications out of
Savannah,GA. Kalvin was asked to submit a song idea and they loved his concept, so much that
he was flown out by the company to work with the senior marketing director for Santa Fe
Natural Tobacco Company in Santa Fe, NM. Kalvin wrote original lyrics for the song and
worked as a music consultant for the individuals performing the song. Needless to say Kalvin has
quite a niche for all walks of entertainment. From performing, to writing, to acting, he is truly a
renaissance man. He is passionate and dedicated in all of his endeavors. Kalvin has always
believed that hard work and tremendous effort will always take you further than waiting for it to
fall in your lap. Kalvin is and always will be a man of action and will stop at nothing to achieve
his goals.
