Don Black News
Introducing Don Black!
Don Black is the multi-award winning lyricist whose awards include an Oscar for “Born Free” and five Academy Award nominations working with such legendary composers as John Barry, Jule Styne, Quincy Jones and Elmer Bernstein.
He’s written over a hundred songs for motion pictures including The Italian Job, True Grit, Dances with Wolves and Out of Africa, not to mention five James Bond themes including Thunderball and Diamonds are Forever and two US number one hits with Michael Jackson and Lulu.
Don has a smooth, warm and soothing voice which you can now hear every Sunday Night on Radio 2 spinning cast iron classics from Sinatra to Astaire, and we are proud to say we now represent his soft, velvet tones. Welcome aboard Don!
