Van Dyke Parks is a musical jack-of-all-trades; working as a composer, arranger, producer and performer. As well as his solo repertoire, Parks has worked with a whose who of musical legend: The Beach Boys, Thy Byrds, Ringo Starr, Grateful Dead, Bruce Springsteen, Tim Buckley, Fiona Apple, Sheryl Crow and Silverchair.
