Gale Zoë Garnett (born 17 July 1942, Auckland, New Zealand) is best known for her Grammy-winning folk hit "We'll Sing in the Sunshine." Garnett has since carved out a career as a writer and actress. When Garnett was 11, her family moved to Canada, and she made her public singing debut in 1960, while at the same time pursuing an acting career making guest appearances on television shows such as 77 Sunset Strip. In the fall of 1964, Garnett scored a Top 10 pop hit with her original composition "We'll Sing in the Sunshine" (also #1 on Billboard's Adult Contemporary singles chart for seven weeks and a Top 50 country hit), and recorded her debut album, My Kind of Folk Songs, for RCA Victor. Riding the success of "We'll Sing in the Sunshine," which won a Grammy for Best Folk Recording, Garnett continued to record through the rest of the 1960s with her backing band the Gentle Reign. However, her follow-up to "We'll Sing In The Sunshine," "Lovin' Place," was her only other single to chart in America. Although Garnett retired from the music business by the 1980s, she has also continued appearing in feature films (such as 2002's My Big Fat Greek Wedding) and on television shows, usually in supporting roles.

In subsequent years, she also branched out into journalism, writing essays, columns, and book reviews for various newspapers and magazines. She also wrote and performed two one-person theater pieces, Gale Garnett & Company and Life After Latex. Garnett published her first novel, Visible Amazement, in 1999. She followed up with Transient Dancing in 2003. Read more on Last.fm.
