DAVID NEWMAN (Composer) created and conducted the original musical scores for such recent films as Bowfinger, Never Been Kissed, Anastasia and Out To Sea. Additional composer credits include Matilda, The Nutty Professor, The Phantom, Boys on the Side, The Cowboy Way, I Love Trouble, The Flintstones, The Freshman, The War of the Roses, The Marrying Man and Mr. Destiny.
Newman springs from an eminent musical family-his father, the late Alfred Newman, was nominated for 60 Academy Awards® and received a record nine Oscars as head of 20th Century Fox’s music department. His uncle Lionel was a conductor and music director, his sister Maria is a classical violinist, his brother Tom is also a film composer, and cousin Randy is a well-known singer, songwriter and film composer as well.
After 10 years as a successful studio musician, Newman made his professional composing debut with the original score for Roger Corman’s Vendetta, which was soon followed by Critters. He created music for the computer-animated short The Brave Little Toaster, as well as Amazing Stories, My Demon Lover, Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure, Heathers and Throw Momma from the Train.
