Randy Newman has announced a series of international An Evening With Randy Newman tour dates for 2020 including a Sage One gig in June.
Few songwriters can cut to the quick the way Newman does. He remains a great American songbook unto himself. Guardian
Newman began recording in 1968 with a self-titled album. Throughout the 1970s, he released several other acclaimed albums such as 12 Songs, Sail Away, and Good Old Boys. He began composing and scoring for films in the 1980s, and his work includes all four Toy Story pictures, A Bugs Life, Cars and Cars 3.
In Newmans best music he leaves you wondering where you stand, what you think, what you believe, how the world works. Pitchfork
In addition to Dark Matter, most recently Nonesuch released The Randy Newman Songbook, comprising solo recordings of songs from throughout Newmans five-decade career. His many honours include seven Grammys, three Emmys, and two Academy Awards, as well as a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 2002 and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2013 the same year he was given an Ivor Novello PRS for Music Special International Award.
Newman has a knack for writing songs that are so attuned to whats going on in the U.S. that they become predictive, articulating uncomfortable thoughts that are in the air but had theretofore gone unarticulated. Vanity Fair
Newman also was presented with a PEN New England Song Lyrics of Literary Excellence Award in 2014. In 2018 he collaborated with Rex Orange County on his version of Newmans Youve Got A Friend In Me, and in 2019, in addition to Toy Story 4, he collaborated with Chance The Rapper on 5 Year Plan for the album The Big Day.
