David Louis Newman, born Los Angeles, CA, 1954 is Thomas Newman's older brother by one year. He played violin as a child with the Santa Monica Symphony. He studied performance and conducting at the University of Southern California, then worked as a studio musician and free lance conductor.

David was only fifteen when his father, Alfred, died. After college, David began listening to hours of his father's compositions. He said, "It planted a seed in me that eventually came to fruition."

David is a frequent collaborator with actor/director Danny DeVito. He has scored Throw Momma from the Train (1987), The War of the Roses (1989), Other Peoples Money (1991), Hoffa (1992), Matilda (1996) and Death to Smoochy (2002).

Beginning In 1997 David was music director for the Sundance Institute for four years and he has conducted the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra on several occasions. He also re-recorded the Twentieth Century Fox Fanfare composed by his father Alfred.

Says David, "My father was a huge influence on me in all aspects of music and in the whole idea that you could get everyone together to do something extraordinarily beautiful. The collaborative and the performance and the music all rolled into one."

He, along with his brother Thomas and cousin Randy and father Alfred, have their own page dedicated to their wonderful music.
