Jimmy Webb (USA)

A songwriter for 35+ years, Webb's, “Wichita Lineman” has been honoured several times as one of the greatest songs of all time.

A highly awarded songwriter and orchestrator, Webb is renowned for his strong, varied rhythms, inventive structures, and rich harmonies. However, he is best known for the instant classics he provided for such artists as Glen Campbell (“By The Time I Get To Phoenix”, “Wichita Lineman”, “Galveston”, “Where's The Playground Susie”), Richard Harris (“Macarthur Park”, “Didn't We”), The Fifth Dimension (“Up, Up and Away”, “This Is Your Life”), The Brooklyn Bridge (“Worst That Could Happen”), Art Garfunkel (“All I Know”) Linda Ronstadt (“Easy For You To Say”), Joe Cocker (“The Moon's A Harsh Mistress”) and so on.

With a discography that reads like a ‘who's who' in the music world, Webb's songs continue to grace a multitude of major recording artists' albums, from Tony Bennett and Rosemary Clooney, to Urge Overkill, Reba McEntire and R.E.M.
