Take Some Time Out



One of the premier voices in house music, Arnold Jarvis' baritone is immediately recognizable on classics such as "Inspiration," "Life Goes On," and "Spread Love."  Like many singers, Jarvis received his initial exposure to music via gospel, which he performed as a teenager.  His secular career began in 1987, when he recorded "Take Some Time Out" for the legendary Fourth Floor label.  The enormous response to the record on the underground circuit made Jarvis an instant star, and he has maintained that status up to the present day.

In addition to the soulful and inspirational nature of his lyrics, Jarvis' records are distinguished by high production qualities. To date, he has collaborated with some of house music's most respected producers, including Kerri Chandler, Benji Candelario, Frankie Knuckles and Little Louie Vega.
