Biography

Throughout his career, Arnold Jarvis has been nothing but consistent - consistent when it comes to getting noticed. His is a brilliant career that began at the prime of his youth. While only a teenager, his voice and talent landed him front and center of the Baltimore Gospel Choir for whom he was a prodigious soloist.

In 1984, modest academic pursuits led him to New York City. However, his talent and love of music did not lie dormant for long. He was drawn to music industry circles and was quickly embraced by them. He began to write, perform and record. Among the more notable gems from this early period in his career are his collaboration with Fonda Rae on “You’re The Best,” a song written by Lem Springsteen (Mood II Swing) and produced by Kerri Chandler; and his debut single, “Take Some Time Out” (Fourth Floor Records) produced by Tommy Musto and Yvonne Turner, which enjoyed huge underground and global success.

In the 90s, he made it known that he meant business and showed audiences everywhere that he was a force to be reckoned with. First came his guest appearance on Satoshi Tomiie’s “And I Loved You” (FFRR, Polygram UK), produced by Grammy winner, Frankie Knuckles. Then followed the monumental classic, “Inspiration” (Freetown Records), produced by Kerri Chandler. He reached a new pinnacle and gained notoriety when he recorded Swing 52’s epic songs, “Color of My skin” (FFRR/Cutting Records) and “The Joy You Bring” (Cutting Records), which he co-wrote.
