Hummie Man, Two-time Emmy-award Winning Canadian Composer and Arranger

Two-time Emmy-award winning Canadian composer/arranger Hummie Mann has collaborated with some of Hollywood's most celebrated directors in both theatrical and television films.  Oscar-winning movie-music legend Jerry Goldsmith recommended Hummie Mann as “a composer with a strong sense of melody and a genuine command of the orchestra.” Mann’s motion pictures projects have ranged from Mel Brooks' “Robin Hood: Men in Tights” and “Dracula, Dead and Loving It” to Peter Yates' “Year of the Comet”. Although his resume is too long to list here, it also includes composing the main title theme and underscore for Rob Reiner's television cult series “Morton & Hayes” (CBS). He received two Emmy nominations for his arrangements on the popular “Moonlighting” series and received his first Emmy Award for arranging Billy Crystal's opening number for the “1992 Academy Awards” telecast. Mann also co-produced the Marc Shaiman scores for such hits as “Sleepless in Seattle”, “A Few Good Men” and “Mr. Saturday Night”, and both orchestrated and conducted the Shaiman scores for “City Slickers” and “The Addams Family”. Mann was honored with his second Emmy Award for an episode of Showtime's Picture Windows entitled “Language of the Heart”.  The composer's score so impressed director Jonathan Kaplan that Kaplan hired him to score the CBS mini-series “In Cold Blood” starring Anthony Edwards and Eric Roberts. Mann was the founding president and a long-time board member and of the Seattle Composers Alliance and for 10 years served as a governor of the Northwest Chapter of the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences.  He currently serves on the board of the American Society of Music Arrangers and Composers (ASMAC).  Currently he is working on original songs with his songwriting partner, Sue Ennis, for the upcoming animated feature “Vincent the Artist”, as well as the score to the feature documentary “Automat”. He divides his time between Seattle, Washington and Los Angeles, CA.
