Cole Porter

Cole Porter (June 9, 1891 – October 15, 1964) was an American composer and songwriter. Born to a wealthy family in Indiana, he defied the wishes of his domineering grandfather and took up music as a profession. Classically trained, he was drawn towards musical theatre. After a slow start, he began to achieve success in the 1920s, and by the 1930s he was one of the major songwriters for the Broadway musical stage. Unlike many successful Broadway composers, Porter wrote the lyrics, as well as the music, for his songs.

His list of songs in smash hit musicals includes : Anything Goes, Can-Can, High Society, Kiss Me Kate. Many of his songs have become ‘standards’ and covered by many artists.
