Personal Quote:

In the back of your mind, when you say you want to write music for the movies, you're saying that you want a big house, a big car and a boat. If you just wanted to write music, you could live in Kansas and do it. See more »

Trivia:

On April 22, 2008, before a packed house at the LSU Union Theatre at Louisiana State University, Conti was inducted into the Louisiana Music Hall of Fame. See more »
