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. . . . 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.
—Paul Zollo, Songwriters on Songwriting
Few singers blend grit and grandeur like Jimmy Webb.
Jimmy Webb is an American singer, songwriter, and composer known worldwide as a master of his trade. His timeless hits continue to be performed and recorded by the industry’s biggest names, and his new compositions span the musical spectrum. Not many artists can say they premiered a classical nocturne and had a rap hit with Kanye West (“Do What You Gotta Do” formed the central hook in “Famous”) in the same year, but Webb’s career is full of surprises. Since his first platinum single, “The Worst That Could Happen,” Webb has had numerous hits, including “By the Time I Get to Phoenix,” “Wichita Lineman, “Galveston,” and “MacArthur Park,” and he has become a leader, mentor, and champion for songwriters.
Webb is the only artist ever to have received Grammy Awards for music, lyrics, and orchestration. In 2016, Rolling Stone listed Webb as one of the top 50 songwriters of all time. Time and again, Webb has paved the way for songwriters in an ever-changing media landscape, spearheading the ongoing effort to preserve the rights of songwriters and their intellectual property in the digital age.
