Biography

“Few singers blend grit and grandeur like Jimmy Webb…[his] voice is like an old Mustang heading through a treacherous yet often gorgeous landscape.” — Rolling Stone

“At an age when other singers are losing their voices, Mr. Webb finds his mercurial, unguarded, singing…attaining the gritty authority of a softhearted country outlaw’s…Mr. Webb is still at the top of his game.”— Stephen Holden The New York Times

“At an age when other singers are losing their voices, Mr. Webb finds his mercurial, unguarded, singing…attaining the gritty authority of a softhearted country outlaw’s…Mr. Webb is still at the top of his game.”— Stephen Holden The New York Times

Jimmy Webb is arguably the finest American pop songwriter of his generation, who went from struggling composer to seeming overnight success in 1967 with such chart-topping renditions of his tunes as the Fifth Dimension’s “Up, Up and Away” and Glen Campbell’s “By the Time I Get To Phoenix,” yielding the gifted 21 year-old artist eight Grammy awards in a single year. Few have exhibited such versatility or such bold artistic reach within a pop context. Like John Lennon and Paul McCartney or Brian Wilson, Webb’s approach was groundbreaking and visionary, yet his songs were adaptable to an impressive range of artists – Top 40, country, rock – and immediately embraced by mainstream audiences.

Still Within the Sound of My Voice, the latest from cultural figure Jimmy Webb follows his critically acclaimed 2010 release, Just Across the River. The new album features appearances from 14 guest artists, including Lyle Lovett, Carly Simon, Keith Urban, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Joe Crocker, Marc Cohn, America, Kris Kristofferson, Amy Grant, Brian Wilson and Art Garfunkel. Webb recently performed at MacArthur Park to honor the 45th anniversary of the song, for which he was featured on the cover of The Los Angeles Times. He will continue to tour throughout the summer. Webb notes, “Still Within The Sound Of My Voice continues the sensual rediscovery of living through and fully realizing the potential joy in the recording experience. This is a brother and sisterhood of like-minded people sparing nothing for the love of the recording and passing that experience on to the listener.” Webb’s songwriting prowess and love of the craft has earned him the position of Chairman of the Songwriters Hall of Fame. Jimmy Webb remains a strong force in the music business and is joined on this record once again by longtime producer, Fred Mollin. Of the recording, Mollin explains, “We came back to the scene of the crime of Just Across The River in Nashville, and I used the same team of assassins to surround Jimmy with the most soulful musical virtuosity, allowing Jimmy’s roots-of Americana voice to ring true. Jimmy was born in Oklahoma, and this record continues our adventures in giving Jimmy a homecoming with Americana, Country, Folk and even Bluegrass infused in his incomparable songs. This album is an event, and one that both Jimmy and I are deeply proud.” Still Within the Sound of My Voice was recorded in Nashville. Jimmy Webb was accompanied in the studio by Matt Rollings (piano, wurlitzer, organ, synth), Bryan Sutton (acoustic guitars, banjo, mandolin), John Willis (acoustic guitars, electric guitars, banjo), Pat Buchanan (electric guitars) Larry Paxton (bass), Greg Morrow (drums), Stuart Duncan (fiddle, mandolin), Jeff Taylor (accordion), and Paul Franklin (steel guitar, dobro). Furthermore, Jerry Douglas contributed to playing dobro on “Easy for You to Say” and “MacArthur Park” while Webb provided playing the piano on “Shattered.”
