Mort Garson

About Mort Garson

Mort Garson boasts one of the most unique and outright bizarre résumés in popular music. Not only did he write Ruby & the Romantics chart-topping 1963 single "Our Day Will Come" and provide the luxe string arrangement for Glen Campbell's 1968 smash "By the Time I Get to Phoenix," he helped introduce the world to the sounds of the Moog synthesizer through his music for commercials and his soundtrack for CBS' broadcast of the moon landing in 1969. After the '60s, he continued to work on surprisingly eclectic and influential projects, including the kitschy erotica of 1971's Music for Sensuous Lovers, 1974's Grammy-winning children's album The Little Prince, and 1976's plant-inspired Mother Earth's Plantasia.
