Sam Newton writes songs that dig deep into melancholy, devotion and flawed and fascinating characters. He has the uncanny ability to find a direct line into the central themes of his songs with a raw and poetic honesty. Newton served his apprenticeship on the Sydney music scene, playing with and learning from some of its finest songwriters and performers. His stylistic fluidity has enabled him to play with a wide variety of other acts, from veterans of the country scene to the new generation of folk singers populating the inner city pubs and bars. In September 2016, Newton released and toured his second album, Violet Road. This album featured an expanded and more subtle musical palette which was partnered with songs that traded in an unflinching honesty, dialling directly into the heart of subjects such as infatuation, mental health, relationships both damaged and on the ascent. Americana / Folk / Alt-Country
