Songwriters Hall of Fame
-- inducted 2001
at five feet tall, with blonde hair, a constant, if endearing, smirk on
his face, and a sardonic wit, composer, singer and actor Paul
Williams has won fame as both an actor and songwriter. He has
been lauded and awarded over the years by audiences and his peers alike,
not only as one of the most gifted and prolific lyricists and composers,
but also as a humanitarian.
As a composer, Williams' achievements are virtually
unparalleled, having received nine nominations from the National Academy
of Recording Arts and Sciences and six nominations each from the Academy
of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences and the Hollywood Foreign Press
Association. He has filled his shelf with Grammys, Golden Globes and an
Oscar. He has also been recognized by both ASCAP and BMI for the success
of his songs.
album, "Back To Love
Again," released by Pioneer Entertainment
and distributed by Koch International, gives a hint as to why he has
been applauded during his career. The album is highlighted by new
versions of such Williams' hits as "I Won't Last a Day Without
You," "An Old Fashioned Love Song" and "Rainbow
Connection," as well as "You're Gone," which topped the
country charts for country stars
The album, which also contains six future classics from Williams' pen,
features guest appearances by
Nash, Richard Carpenter, Valerie
Carter and Wings' guitarist Laurence Juber.
Williams' list of acting credits is almost as long as
that of his songs. Among his memorable movies have been "The Muppet
Movie," "The Doors," "Battle For The Planet Of The
Apes," the cult favorite "Phantom of the Paradise" and
his running portrayal of "Little Enos" in the three "Smokey
and The Bandit" films. His television acting credits include
"Star Trek," "Walker, Texas Ranger", "Picket
Fences," "Boston Common," "Babylon 5,"
"Hart to Hart" and a regular role in the CBS daytime drama,
"The Bold and The Beautiful." He is also heard as the voice of
the Penguin on the animated "Batman" series.
However, it was as a singer/songwriter that Paul
Williams first entered the public eye. In addition to previously
mentioned hits, such enduring Williams' songs as "We've Only just
Begun," "Rainy Days and Mondays," "Let Me Be The
One," "You and Me Against The World,"
Three Dog Night's
hit versions of "The Family of Man" and "Out in the
Country," and the Oscar winning "Evergreen" are just a
handful of his songs that have become part of our musical landscape and
have sold hundreds of millions of records worldwide.
As a performer, he has toured extensively, not only in
the United States, but also in Europe, Asia and South America.
Songs written by Paul Williams have been
recorded by some of the biggest and most diverse names in the music
business, including Frank Sinatra,
Ross, Elvis Presley,
Gladys Knight, John
Denver, Ella Fitzgerald, The Carpenters,
Loggins, Sarah Vaughan,
Reddy, Johnny Mathis,
Charles, Bing Crosby and
Williams' songs have also found favor with such
country music artists as Garth Brooks, Anne Murray,
Crystal Gayle, Kris Kristofferson, and
Neal McCoy. In fact, Nashville
has become Williams' "home away from home" and many of Country's
newer faces have been recording his material. In 1995, along with
of The Moody Blues and
McDonald, he was honored at Music City's Tin Pan Alley South Music
Festival held in the famed Ryman Auditorium.
In addition to "Evergreen," Paul Williams
also received Academy Award Nominations for his music from the films
"Cinderella," "Liberty," Brian de Palma's
"Phantom of The Paradise," "The Muppet Movie" and
"Bugsy Malone," for which Paul wrote the songs and score, and
which has gone on to become a successful stage production in the both
United States and the United Kingdom.
Among his other film music credits include "Rocky
IV," "The Secret of Nimh," "The Muppet Christmas
Carol" and "Ishtar," which Paul laughingly talks about as
"My hardest job ever…to write the 'good' bad songs required for
