WHAT THEY SAY ABOUT ALAN REEVES

A REEF REBORN – IMAX HD 3D - 2016

"When I need to have music that reflects the emotional moment of the film I'm producing I can turn with confidence to Alan Reeves. Alan has the unerring ability and the creativity to compose music that will transform an extraordinary story into a masterpiece. In my view he is the very best of a small cadre of composers who can paint glorious pictures with music and pluck the emotional moment from the air to deliver it - with deadly accuracy - directly to the heart." Soames Summerhays, Director – Producer


PIETER KROONENBURG produced 8 feature films, using Alan Reeves, “who is one of the finest film composers in the world.”


Dec Cluskey.

"You probably know me, respected hit recorder of loads of '60's' and '70's' songs in the UK, USA, Australia, Italy, Germany, France, in fact, the World, with my band 'The Bachelors', with gold million sellers like: 'Diane', 'I Believe', 'Charmaine', 'Ramona' ... We outsold 'The Beatles' in 1964 and 1965 ... TRUE. We were the first band out of Ireland to ever have an International Number One.  We had two in the Top Five at the same time ...


Alan Reeves…

He got a Grammy last year for his film score for “To Walk With Lions” also an award for “OCEAN OASIS” the top IMAX film score. 

now you won’t know that Alan Reeves was, and is, the greatest HAMMOND B3 organ player in the world.....the best I have ever seen...."


Kevin McCarey, National Geographic Television
