About Faith

Percy Faith received his early training as a pianist in Canada and as a young man played the piano for silent films in movie houses. His career as a pianist came to an end at age 18 when his young sister accidentally set her dress on fire, and Faith’s hands were burned seriously as he rescued her.

He then switched to a career as an arranger and composer, became an American citizen in 1945, and was based primarily in Hollywood, where he wrote film scores, recorded, and made countless arrangements for a number of artists.
