A true living legend of songwriting, Jimmy Webb has been crafting amazing songs, many of which have become cherished standards, for over forty years. Though some might still not know his name, they know the songs: ‘Wichita Lineman,’ ‘By The Time I Get To Phoenix,’ ‘Galveston,’ ‘The Moon’s A Harsh Mistress,’ ‘All I Know,’ ‘The Highwayman,’ ‘Up, Up and Away,’ ‘MacArthur Park,’ and many more. And those are just the famous ones. Webb is one of those rare songwriters who manages to bring a genuine measure of magic to everything he touches. In 2016 Rolling Stone Magazine named him as one of the top 50 songwriters of all time. Webb’s songs have been recorded by some of the greatest voices of all time including Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Elvis Presley, Isaac Hayes, Art Garfunkel, Linda Ronstadt, and Judy Collins, as well as bands like R.E.M.
‘Mr. Webb is a superb natural melodist whose best songs often combine the tuneful directness of country music with the unabashedly romantic harmonic palette of classic Hollywood film scores.’ – The New York Times
