James Newton Howard (1951)

Type :  


James Newton Howard is an American composer best known for his scores to motion pictures. He is one of the most popular and respected composers for cinema, and has scored over 100 films. The recipient of eight Academy Award nominations, some of Howard's best known film scores include The Prince of Tides , The Fugitive , Dinosaur , King Kong , I Am Legend , and, most recently Green Lantern . He is also known for his collaboration with director M. Night Shyamalan, having scored all his films since The Sixth Sense .


 early life and career
Howard was born in Los Angeles, California. Throughout his career as a composer/musician/songwriter, he has scored films of all scales and genres, earning multiple award nominations for his work. Howard began studying music as a child and went on to attend the Thacher School in Ojai, California, the Music Academy of the West in Santa Barbara, California, and then majored in piano performance at the University of Southern California.

After Howard left college, he toured with Elton John as a keyboardist during the late 1970s and early 1980s . Howard also arranged strings for several of Elton's songs during this period including on the hits "Don't Go Breaking My Heart" and "Sorry Seems To Be The Hardest Word", as well as playing additional keyboards and synthesizers on several of Elton's studio albums, including "Rock of The Westies" , "Blue Moves" , "21 At 33" , and "The Fox" .

After his tenure with John, Howard toured briefly with Crosby, Stills and Nash before moving into film music in the mid-1980s. Howard did, however, return for a brief collaboration with Elton John on his Tour De Force of Australia at the fall of 1986. Howard conducted both his own and Paul Buckmaster's arrangements during second half of the set, which focused on orchestrated performances of selected songs from John's catalog. (Interestingly, most of Howard's film scores are conducted by others.)

Twenty-five years after the death of his father, Howard learned from his grandfather that the paternal side of his family was of Jewish heritage
