Danny Elfman Children



Danny Elfman Children: On May 29, 1953, Daniel Robert Elfman, an American composer, performer, and songwriter, was born. He rose to prominence in the early 1980s as the singer-songwriter for the new wave band Oingo Boingo.

Elfman was born in Amarillo, Texas, to a Jewish family with Polish and Russian background.

He is the brother of actor, singer, and journalist Richard Elfman, and the son of writer and teacher Blossom Elfman (née Bernstein) and Air Force teacher Milton Elfman.

Elfman grew up in a racially mixed rich enclave in Baldwin Hills, California, where he spent a lot of time at the local movie theater, discovering classic sci-fi, fantasy, and horror films and Bernard Herrmann and Franz Waxman’s music.
