    Watch: Randy Newman Joins Son Amos for Billboard / Hollywood Reporter Film & TV Music Conference Keynote Q&A

    Randy Newman was joined on stage by his son Amos Newman, the head of Music for Visual Media at the William Morris Endeavor talent agency, for an hour-long keynote Q&A at the 2013 Billboard & The Hollywood Reporter Film & TV Music Conference, held in Los Angeles earlier this week. The conversation touched on a number of topics related to Newman père's career in music, as a singer-songwriter and as the composer of film scores, not least for a number of Pixar pictures. You can watch an excerpt of the discussion, including some thoughts on Kanye West and talk of a new solo album, below.

    After starting his songwriting career as a teenager, Newman launched into recording as a singer and pianist in 1968 with his self-title album Randy Newman. His reputation as a songwriter grew quickly, as Judy Collins, Dusty Springfield, Peggy Lee, Harry Nilsson, and Joe Cocker, among others, recorded his work. Throughout the 1970s he released several other acclaimed albums such as 12 Songs, Sail Away, and Good Old Boys. His most recent albums include two volumes of the Randy Newman Songbook, 2008’s Harps and Angels, and the CD/DVD set Live in London, released last year. In addition to his solo recordings and regular international touring, Newman began composing and scoring for films in the 1980s. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame earlier this year.
