You can hear composer Joey Newman’s music every time you tune into The Middle on ABC as well as on the reality show Little People, Big World. Joey also just conducted alongside John Williams at the Young Musicians Foundation Gala. If you’re wondering about the last name the answer is yes, he is indeed from the prestigious Newman family of composers. I talk to him about entering his family’s legacy and how music found him while growing up. We also talk about scoring a 30-minute sitcom like The Middle and all the challenges that come with comedic scoring. We also touch on scoring a reality series like Little People, Big World and much more. Enjoy this pleasure of an interview with a great and talented guy!
