Randy Newman Biography - Satire and Songwriting Since 1970
Randy Newman was born in Los Angeles, California in 1943. He began writing songs aged 17 and was accepted to the music program at UCLA, but dropped out shortly before completing his degree. Newman began writing for bands such as The Fleetwoods in the '60s and in 1968, he released his first album Randy Newman, a collection of emotional piano-led songs. Although it was never a chart topper, the album was a hit with critics and fellow musicians. The song 'I Think It's Going to Rain Today' quickly became incredibly popular, and was covered by a host of artists including Art Garfunkel and Nina Simone.
Newman garnered a great deal of commercial success in the 1970s with albums like Sail Away and Little Criminals. His songs continued to capture the imagination of other singers and artists like Tom Jones, Etta James and Jerry Garcia, who all covered his music. Newman spent a large part of the 1980s composing and performing music for film and television. Since the 1970s, Newman has composed music for many films and been nominated for Oscars for his work on films like Ragtime (1981) and Toy Story (1995). He finally won an Oscar for his song 'If I Didn't Have You' in Monsters Inc (2001). The singer was honoured in 2002 by being inducted into the Songwriter Hall of Fame and again in 2013 when he was added to prestigious Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
