Biography

Paul Giovanni

Born in 1933, Paul Giovanni was an American folk singer/songwriter best known for his soundtrack to the legendary 1973 British horror film The Wicker Man, a score he researched, wrote and recorded within seven weeks. Using a more ethnomusicological approach, the soundtrack (voted second best soundtrack ever in MOJO Magazine September 2006 after it's eventual 2002 release) uses Celtic musical themes, traditional instrumentation played by folk-rock group Magnet and a combination of ancient pagan verse and Giovanni's own lyrics.
