Personal Quote:

I think my writing has an old-fashioned feel to it, for whatever reason. I'm just so influenced by the music that I listened to growing up, a lot of it out of the 60's, so it has a natural tendency to feel like it's from another era. See more »

Trivia:

Was nominated for Film Composer of the Year in 2004, 2007, 2009 and 2011 by the International Film Music Critics Association. He only won the award in 2004. See more »
