"Eric has the multi-instrumentalist skills that only come with a lifetime of experience. He has a virtual encyclopedic knowledge of recorded music. In addition to these, he has a very up-to-date working knowledge of studio recording. He's a great songwriter and singer as well. This combination of talents makes Eric a very exiting person to work with. He's very dynamic, intelligent, and perceptive. So I feel confident in working with him that we'll be able to work through difficulties in the creative process, and come up with something fresh and inspired. Working with Eric on mixes for a recent record was, as anticipated, a real pleasure. Eric quickly gets a sense of the scope and context of the project as a whole, as well as the various parties and interests. He always finds a sound that satisfies. "
-- Matt Johnson, drummer/recording artist (Jeff Buckley, Rufus Wainwright, Martha Wainwright)

Thanks Eric for all your cooperation, your enthusiasm and your work. Blessings !!"

We cut the tracks on the fly with only one listen for Eric, he came up with exceptional parts and laid them down in one take. Saving both time and money, everyone involved was thrilled with his performance."

"I count myself blessed to have been able to bring Eric Jarvis in on a number of projects I was either producing or musically directing. It is very rare to find someone with such sensitivity to the whole picture, delicious sounding gear, and the elusive “X-factor”: the gift of finding the right notes on the right instrument and executing them with precision and grace. It is additional blessing to have all of that talent coupled with a truly enviable relational capacity with artists, players and fellow producers."

final third very funny guy."

"I had a great fullfilling experience working with Eric. He knows how to make you happy. He can read you so well that it feels like you've been listening to music together since high school, but at the same time he knows exactly how to make a super-pro, powerful, beautiful sound. He never tires of listening to you, working on details, and he wants to make the best out of it, always."
