FEATURED ARTIST: Randy Newman
The prolific Los Angeles singer/songwriter, Randy Newman, launched his recording career in 1968 with a self-titled album that sold poorly and was panned by the critics. His second release garnered rave revues establishing him as a major artist. His satirical and humorous lyrics coupled with a folk pop style lend real fire to his piano based tunes. He began composing and scoring for films in the 1980s. Randy Newman released 12 studio albums over the years and scored at least 20 films and television specials.
