Through the Years: An Evening with Marty Panzer (November 10, 2018)


Marty Panzer became a lyricist at the suggestion of his best friend, Barry Manilow, while they were both in the mailroom at CBS-TV in New York.  They began by writing commercial jingles and their lifelong collaboration has resulted in over 30 songs recorded by Mr. Manilow, many of which have become American pop standards, including Even Now, It's a Miracle, This One's For You, All the Time, I Am Your Child, etc.  

Later, with Steve Dorff, Mr. Panzer co-wrote the Kenny Rogers classic, Through the Years.  These songs, along with recordings by Dionne Warwick, Gladys Knight, Julio Iglesias, Dusty Springfield, Michael Crawford, Frankie Valli, Dolly Parton and others, have earned Mr. Panzer 35 gold and platinum albums, four million-play awards, and record sales in excess of 70 million units.  

Mr. Panzer also wrote lyrics and dialogue for the MGM Grand production of EFX. He received an Annie Award nomination for We Are One from The Lion King II, and also wrote the lyrics for Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World.  

Currently, he’s completing his first book, and planning new performances of Through the Years: An Evening with Marty Panzer. Mr. Panzer's work is featured on the Disney DVD series Magic English, as well as The Magical World of Winnie The Pooh, Alice in Wonderland Masterpiece Edition, and Once Upon A Halloween. 

He has also written lyrics and music, for the newest editions of Mommy and Me, as well as lyrics for Diane Schuur’s album Midnight. 

Most recently, he co-wrote and co-produced the Disney Princess Tea Party Album, Disney's Princess Christmas Album, and Disney's Princess Party Album.

For 25 years Marty Panzer has been teaching his UCLA Extension class, “Writing Lyrics That Succeed And Endure.” Some of his guest speakers have included Barry Manilow, Chris Montan (President Walt Disney Music), Cynthia Weil (Grammy Award-winning lyricist), Rod McKuen (Grammy Award-winning lyricist, author, and artist), Stephen Schwartz (Academy Award-winning composer/lyricist), Phil Ramone (Producer for Billy Joel, Ray Charles, Sinatra), Larry Gatlin (Grammy Award-winning artist), Diane Schuur (Grammy Award-winning Jazz Vocalist), among many others.
