Named one of the "Top Three Composers of the 80s" by the American Film Institute, score Composer Mark Isham won a Grammy for his self-titled 1990 album, earned an Emmy for the main title theme to EZ Streets, and received both a Grammy and Academy Award nomination for his score for A River Runs Through It. In addition, he composed the film scores for Robert Redford's Quiz Show, Jodie Foster's Nell (for which he received a Golden Globe nomination), Sidney Lumet's Night Falls on Manhattan, and numerous other major motion pictures.

In addition to writing the themes for the television series Nothing Sacred and Michael Hayes, as well as contributions for the mini series From the Earth to the Moon, Isham is also responsible for the twice Emmy-nominated theme for Chicago Hope. He has been nominated for seven Grammy Awards.
