Randy Newman is a globally recognized name, having won two Oscars, five Grammys, three Emmys, as well as being an inductee into the Songwriters’ Hall of Fame. He is known for scoring films including modern classic children’s films Toy Story, A Bug’s Life and Monsters, Inc. Despite all of this unbridled acclaim, Newman remains down to earth and maintains his sense of humor. His tongue-in-cheek succinct style has been often imitated, but never duplicated with the same flair. As a forty-plus year veteran of the music business, Randy Newman shows no signs of slowing down anytime soon.
