Emmy, Oscar and Grammy-winning composer and songwriter Randy Newman performs at Mayo Performing Arts Center on Friday, Sept. 15, 2017, at 8 p.m.

Tickets are $49-99.

With songs that run the gamut from heartbreaking to satirical and a host of unforgettable film scores, Randy Newman has used his many talents to create musical masterpieces widely recognized by generations of audiences.

"Randy Newman is a national treasure," said Don Henley of The Eagles about Randy Newman in an interview in the Los Angeles Times. "He's a songwriter's songwriter; a musician's musician. He's also probably the most misunderstood and underappreciated recording artist alive."

After starting his songwriting career as a teenager, Newman launched into recording as a singer and pianist in 1968 with his self-titled album Randy Newman. Throughout the 1970s he released several other acclaimed albums such as: 12 Songs, Sail Away, and Good Old Boys.

In addition to his solo recordings and regular international touring, Newman began composing and scoring for films since the 1980s. The list of movies he has worked includes The Natural, Awakenings, Ragtime, all three Toy Story pictures, Seabiscuit, James and the Giant Peach, A Bug's Life, and most recently, Disney/Pixar's Monsters University, the prequel to Monsters Inc. (which he also scored).

Dark Matter, his most recent release, is his first release since 2008.

Randy Newman's many honors include six 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. Mostly recently, Newman was presented with a PEN New England Song Lyrics of Literary Excellence Award in June 2014.
