About Percy Faith

  • Percy Faith (April 7, 1908 – February 9, 1976) was a Canadian bandleader, orchestrator, composer and conductor, known for his lush arrangements of pop and Christmas standards.
  • He is often credited with popularizing the "easy listening" or "mood music" format.
  • Faith became a staple of American popular music in the 1950s and continued well into the 1960s.
  • Though his professional orchestra-leading career began at the height of the swing era, Faith refined and rethought orchestration techniques, including use of large string sections, to soften and fill out the brass-dominated popular music of the 1940s.
