Gene Vincent de Paul (June 17, 1919 – February 27, 1988) was an American pianist, composer and songwriter.


Biography



Born in New York City, he served in the United States Army during World War II. Married to Billye Louise Files (November 23, 1924 - January 30, 1977) of Jack County, Texas.

He joined the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers (ASCAP) in 1941 and went on to compose the music for many motion pictures. He was nominated (with Don Raye) for an Academy Award for Best Music, Original Song in 1942 for the song "Pig Foot Pete" from the movie Hellzapoppin. The song actually was not included in that movie, but in the 1941 feature, Keep 'Em Flying, and was thus ineligible for the nomination and award. The award was given to "White Christmas".

De Paul collaborated with Johnny Mercer, Don Raye, Carolyn Leigh, Charles Rinker and others at Universal Studios, Walt Disney Studios and other Hollywood companies.

De Paul composed the 1953 hit song "Teach Me Tonight".

De Paul was one of the composers of the songs and dances, along with lyricist Johnny Mercer, for the 1954 musical film Seven Brides for Seven Brothers for which he was nominated for the 1983 Tony Award for Best Original Score.

He was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1985.

Gene de Paul died in 1988 and was interred in the Forest Lawn Memorial Park Cemetery in Hollywood Hills.

    HOY EN PORTADA
    Entrevista a Litto Nebbia (I)

    por Manel Gausachs el 15/10/2018

    Litto Nebbia actuó el pasado 18 de mayo en Barcelona dentro de una pequeña gira española de cuatro conciertos en pequeños locales. Aprovechamos la ocasión para hablar con él poco antes de cumplir los 70. En esta primera entrega de la entrevista, que publicamos en dos partes, hablamos con detalle de seis de los siete discos que ha publicado en estos últimos tres años. Seis obras de géneros muy diferentes que demuestran, una vez más, que Nebbia trasciende los límites del Rock y del relato juvenil que se le adjudicó en sus inicios. En la segunda entrega, que publicaremos próximamente, hablaremos de su faceta como productor, de su nueva autobiografía Mi banda sonora y de lo cerca y lejos que está a la vez entre sí todo el mundo hispánico de la música.
