Liv has toured with Linda Ronstadt, Jimmy Buffett, and Fleetwood Mac among many others, but his fans most often come to see him to experience the winning combination of raconteur, balladeer, and pure fun music making that characterize his concerts.

Jimmy Webb is an American songwriter, composer and singer known worldwide as a master of his trade.

Since his first platinum hit The Worst That Could Happen, Webb has had numerous hits including Up, Up and Away, By the Time I Get to Phoenix, Wichita Lineman, Galveston, All I Know and MacArthur Park, and has also become a leader and mentor in the industry as a champion for songwriters. Webb is the only artist ever to have received GRAMMY Awards for music, lyrics and orchestration. His numerous accolades include the prestigious Ivor Novella International Award (2012) and the Academy of Country Music’s Poet Award (2016).
