    versatile and prolific composers working in film and television today. He
    is an Emmy Award winner and has received 14 Emmy nominations as well as
    three ASCAP Awards for being among the top five most performed composers in
    television. In addition to his scores, Earl's songs have crossed over into

    Object Of My Affection (20th Century Fox), original music for the film
    Gunshy, starring Diane Lane, and selected music for the film, Joe & Max,
    directed by Steve James.
