Randy Newman has long been one of the most musically and lyrically ambitious singer‐songwriters ever to be at play in the fields of popular music. Born to a renowned musical family, by age 17 Newman was a working songwriter. Critics lauded the musical depth, edge and literary quality of his lyrics as the 70’s brought 12 Songs, Live, the classic Sail Away and the hit “Short People.” Newman earned an Emmy and several more Grammys for work on films like Toy Story, James and the Giant Peach, A Bug’s Life and Toy Story 2. He has also earned five Grammy awards and two Emmy awards and will be inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in April 2013.
