Born and raised in Sydney whilst maintaining a blood link to the Riverina area of regional New South Wales, Sam Newton’s lush arrangements dance on the crossroads of songwriting and composing; where music and lyrics combine to create a raw, honest and unified sound, forcing one to reverie in distant times and memories.
It is Sam Newton’s “vividly illustrated storytelling” - Chris Martin, Sydney Morning Herald (Dec 10, 2011) - his classically trained skill set and a wild predisposition for soaring instrumental lines that combine to create his signature sound.
Following Sam Newton’s self-titled EP in 2011, his first full length album Set in Stone was a crowd-funded project two years in the making and released on October 18, 2014. He followed it up with 2016's Violet Road. His most recent release was December 2017's 'Hazel Eyes'.
