hero! John Cardon Debney was born in Burbank, California on August 18th
1956 as a son of a Disney Producer (wonder how he got into the business).
After recieving his BA, he began working as an orchestrator and composer
in Los Angeles. After a successful career in television, he made his first
big impression on the movie music scene in 1993 with the score for Disney's
supernatural comedy 'Hocus Pocus'. Personally my first high impression
was realised in 1992 of the outstanding recording of THE
PHANTOM MANOR. He worked for many more Disney Productions as
the SpectroMagicParade and other Motion Pictures. Debney was honoured
with an Emmy Award in 1997. By the way he also composed the music
for the Touchstone Pictures Tags.
