Multiple Grammy-winning songwriter Jimmy Webb has topped the
charts from pop to country to disco numerous times with interpretations by some
of the industry’s greatest -- from Glen Campbell to Art Garfunkel to Linda
Ronstadt -- and covers by everyone from Guns n’ Roses to Josh Groban to Little Big
Since Webb’s Grammy sweep in 1968 when his own “Up, Up and Away”
and “By the Time I Get to Phoenix” vied for Song of the Year (and “Up” won), to
the use of his “Do What You Gotta Do” in Kanye West’s “Famous,” the man often
praised as “America’s Songwriter” remains an icon in popular music – and
continues to challenge his artistic boundaries with projects like a classical
His most famous songs are
touchstones for a generation yet remain timeless – “MacArthur Park,” “Wichita
Lineman,” “Worst That Could Happen.”
Now in his touring show “An
Evening with Jimmy Webb”and his literary memoir,
THE CAKE AND THE RAIN (St.
Martin’s Press; now in paperback and audiobook),
Webb brings fans of his music a
unique connection to their favorite songs, revealing the stories behind his
hits as far back as his first songwriting job at Motown through a career
trajectory that took a teen preacher’s son from a farm town in Oklahoma to the
top of his longed-for profession, with pitfalls and blessings in equal measure
“He’s a prodigious performer, and a night with Jimmy at the keys is not unlike getting to hear George Gershwin or Cole Porter live. It’s hard to believe one guy could have written all these amazing songs. Webb is still at it, thankfully, and if you get a chance to see him live, grab it. People ask why nobody writes songs like they used to. Fortunately for us all, Jimmy Webb still does.” -American Songwriter Magazine
“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
