What is this weird sound we keep hearing all over the music channels and the radio? Well this glorious sound is Newton Faulkner. Who? I hear you cry. Well Newton has come very far over the past few months. Born in 1985 making him a fresh 22 years of age, Newton first started playing the guitar when he was 15. Although if you listen to his guitar playing you would think he was born playing it. I first saw Newton Live when he supported James Morrison at the beginning of the year. The unique sound plus his excellent Spongebob Squarepants song impression, immediately got my attention. As soon as I got home I logged onto his Myspace page and followed him constantly through ...

my music tastes had always been open to anything new and different. i was a great fan of acoustic artists like jack johnson and jose gonzalez but as my tastes developed i started to liek more upbeat acoustic. newton faulkner really is incredible. his music can make you feel many emotions that not many artists can make you feel. i first noticed him when i heard his song dream catch me on the radio. other than this song he was a little known artist. so, unlike usually i decided to buy his album. and it is fantastic. easily the best album i have heard in a logn time. it was refreshign to hear new beats, rythems and lyrics. his fantastic voice is aided by his ability to play Read the complete review

Over the last few years I have found my musical tastes developing ever so slightly over time and it was my introduction to Elliott Smith that started leading me towards more chilled out artists. So by last summer when Newton Faulkner announced his arrival on the British music scene with the release of "I Need Something", I could tell he was another artist I was going to like. I'd been listening to Jack Johnson quite a bit for the last couple of years and finally a British artist seemed to be able to rival him in making chilled out, relaxing music. Then towards the end of July last year Newton released this, his debut album, Hand Built By Robots at ... Read the complete review

I did not think I would like this album. I have no idea what the basis for my prejudice was (perhaps the dreads/ unwashed/ Levellers look that Newtown Faulkner was going for did it for me and I am a snob) but maybe it was the seemingly balnd music and comparisons to James Morrison and Paolo Nutini, both of whom I do not like. However, when uploading some of my sister in laws music I thought I should put my doubts to one side and just listen to the music. Well, some it is was good, some not so good. You may know from my previous reviews that I have a soft spot for Jack Johnson. Well Faulkner is slightly similar to Johnson, but in a more British way. He ... Read the complete review

I expect by now, at least 80% of the population have heard of Newton Faulkner, haven't they? Handmade guitar, surfydude with dreadlocks, deep soulful voice? No? Well let me enlighten you! He is a 23 years old (at the time of writing), singer/ songwriter from Surrey. His gorgeous rendition of Massive Attacks Teardrops (which I personally think is brilliant - not as good as the original granted, but still hauntingly beautiful just the same), is mainly responsible for bringing him into the public ear. For me, his track Dream Catch Me was what really drew me to finding more about him, perfectly melodic, romantic, and inspiring - and I soon downloaded his music. His ... Read the complete review
