Alan is Canadian but was born in London, England. Like a million other teenagers, he started playing acoustic guitar and singing Beatles songs when he was sixteen. He began writing songs around the same time and he has now written more than 300.
He started performing at solo gigs with just an acoustic guitar, then for many years was a member of a folk trio, called "Breakaway", tackling 3-part harmonies on songs by the Eagles, America, Poco and Simon & Garfunkel. After taking a break to focus on his business career, and a young family, he sang and played lead guitar for seven years in a very successful rock and roll cover band called "Platinum".
For more than 30 years, Alan has written and recorded music, starting on the kitchen table with a cheap condensor microphone and a portable cassette tape player. Over the years he steadily upgraded his home studio equipment and he now records everything digitally on a MacPro computer using Logic Pro software. He plays acoustic and electric guitars, piano and keyboards but he rarely performs anymore as he prefers to write and produce music in the studio.
He writes in a wide variety of styles including pop, dance, country and instrumentals (both club and theme music). Any recording artist or production company looking for original songs or themes is invited to contact Alan at: email@example.com.

Talented singer/songwriter/musician, Alan Jarvis, releases another wonderful Adult Contemporary CD, “Moonlight Everywhere.” Jarvis is certainly a one man band as he not only wrote this entire alum, but he also sings and performs all instruments on it. Jarvis also mixes up the styles on his album as you will hear ballads, instrumentals, and even Pop/Dance grooves. Starting up the album, the song, “No Sitting Down,” catches your ears with its bouncy beat and fun loving lyrics. The instrumental, “Time Machine,” has a soothing melodic melody that flows with a magical tonality. The title track, “Moonlight Everywhere,” swirls with surgery vocals and charming lyrics. The instrumental, “Clouds,” is a beautiful ballad featuring Jarvis deftly playing the soft and delicate piano with an emotive ambiance while the angelic strings gently cascade around the sweet melody. If you are looking for easy listening music that is fresh and original, then you will thoroughly enjoy the fantastic songs on the album, “Moonlight Everywhere.”
