Can music survive the music business? The BerkleeICE Creative Entrepreneurs conversation continues with Panos Panay and Gary Powell, senior lecturer at the University of Texas at Austin and award-winning producer and scorer of 150 albums with sales totalling over 45 million units across 69 countries.
Powell's accomplishments read like a Who's Who catalog of family entertainment, with 147 album productions produced in his Austin, Texas recording studio. His credits include scoring work, original songs, and production as represented on Walt Disney's storybook and song albums for The Little Mermaid, Aladdin, Beauty and the Beast, The Lion King, Pocahontas, Toy Story, A Bug's Life, Toy Story I and II, Dinosaur, and Pirates of the Caribbean. In Powell's work with Walt Disney Records, five of his productions have gone gold and two platinum.
In 1999 Powell received a Grammy nomination along with coproducer Ted Kryczko for their production of Disney's A Bug's Life Sing-Along. In 2001 he was awarded the Award of Distinction from both the Communicator Awards and the Videographer Awards for his video production of "Gary Powell Presents…," a behind-the-scenes look at the recording sessions for A Bug's Life Sing-Along. Powell has also won five gold Parents' Choice Awards and one silver Parent's Choice Award for his work as producer for Joe Scruggs.
