Sam Newton is a seasoned songwriter with a subtle, layered, storytelling power. He has the uncanny ability to find a direct line into the central themes of his music with a raw and poetic honesty.

A well-ingrained Sydney-sider and regular on the local scene, his third studio album ‘Stare Into The Dark’ was recorded live in the Blue Mountains of NSW and released in June 2018.

The real winner is Newton’s song-craft and his ability to compose classic lilting melodies… that ultimately shine an optimistic light through the darkness of his songs.

This is one superlative collection of songs’n’singing. Sam Newton is the business, folks.

Sam Newton you have done it again. Somehow you manage to find the perfect mix of light and dark, fear and hope, vulnerability and strength, pain and sweet relief. Sublime. x
