The only artist ever to receive Grammy Awards for music, lyrics, and orchestration, Jimmy Webb was the youngest man ever inducted into the National Songwriters’ Hall of Fame and is its current Chairman. He also proudly serves as the Vice Chair of the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) and is dedicated to preserving the rights and craft of the songwriter.
His songs have been recorded and performed by music legends including Frank Sinatra, Elvis Presley, Judy Collins, Isaac Hayes, Art Garfunkel, Linda Ronstadt, R.E.M., Michael Feinstein and Carly Simon. Webb’s latest album, Still Within the Sound of My Voice, features duets with other notable singer/songwriters including Brian Wilson, Keith Urban, Lyle Lovett, David Crosby and Graham Nash, Art Garfunkel and more. It is the follow up to his 2010 release, Just Across the River, which featured duets with friends including Billy Joel, Vince Gill, Willie Nelson, Jackson Browne and Glen Campbell.
“It is very exciting to have a truly iconic figure in the music world join us in December. It will be a wonderful treat for the audience. Rolling Stone says few singers blend grit and grandeur like Jimmy Webb…[his] voice is like an old Mustang heading through a treacherous yet often gorgeous landscape,” said Rick Brown, Bethesda Blues & Jazz Owner.
