Newton Faulkner Aussie Tour + New Album!


Newton Faulkner's sixth studio album Hit The Ground Running is out now! Newton is also coming to Australia. The tour is presented by Bluefest Touring to coincide with his performances at Bluesfest in Byron Bay this April.

The first single and title track ‘Hit The Ground Running’ is minimalistic in approach, but a true melodic force, showcasing a skyscraping falsetto that is up there with the very best. Lyrically uplifting, the track drives home a positive message of triumph over adversity and beating the odds to succeed.

When he emerged in 2007, Newton Faulkner was the fleet-fingered prince of sparkling guitar pop. A graduate of the Guildford Academy of Contemporary Music, the songwriter from Surrey had a million-selling, Number One hit with his debut album Hand Built By Robots. Singles ‘Dream Catch Me’ and ‘I Need Something’ still soundtrack festivals all over the world, along with his innovative cover of Massive Attack’s ‘Teardrop’. This is a man who knows how to entertain and to enthral.
