“From CS in Munich, Germany: In my opinion this is one of the best CDs you have ever recorded. The sound, the lyrics – I love everything especially these two songs: Track 2, Don’t Turn Around – this reminds me on your last days as my boss! You left Germany, you left the company and your team and you didn’t turn around. Track 10, I Forgot To Breathe – this song is so emotional and it touches me. This girl must be so lucky that this wonderful song is dedicated to her. (Alan says: You might have guessed that I know "CS" very well! We worked in the same team for seven years when I lived in Munich. Thank you "CS", I really appreciate this.)”

“Here's what Skope Magazine says about Alan's CD, Forever. "Easy listening fans would appreciate the sound, melody and lyrical matter of Forever. The production is well done and shows that Jarvis has pecked his way through his software. It is cleanly produced and pristine without sounding like a heavy-handed approach was used on post-production. For fans of the genre, feel free to consume en masse." ” - Christopher West

“Review by A&R dept of A&R Select, West Hollywood, CA Alan Jarvis may call this "squishy" but it sure sounds sharp to us. Deep in the fun-rock vein of Steve Miller "Moonlight Everywhere" starts guitar happy on "No Sitting Down", a blast with bar-band vibe. Other highlights are the surprising "The End" and the softly bouncy "How In Love We Used to Be". Aesthetically the only issue is the black and white CD cover which is rather hard to read. A minor speed bump, though, on a long road of nicely crafted music.” - A&R Select, West Hollywood, California

“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 album, 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". (5 out of 5 stars).” - Diane and the RadioIndy.com Reviewer Team
