About Margo Guryan
Margo Guryan grew up in the suburbs of New York City and took piano lessons from the age of six. At Boston University she fell in love with jazz and in her junior year switched her major from piano to composition. She was primarily a jazz songwriter; her first recorded song was “Moon Ride”, performed by Chris Connor on Atlantic Records. One day a friend, the jazz pianist and composer Dave Frishberg, urged her to listen to the song “God Only Knows” from the album Pet Sounds by The Beach Boys. Margo loved it and was moved to try her hand at writing in this vein. Subsequently, her songs were recorded by Spanky And Our Gang, Bobbie Gentry and Glen Campbell, Cass Elliot and Jackie DeShannon, among others, plus famously unreleased recordings by Harry Nilsson and Dion.
