Newton (or Sam, as he was known then) first contacted us at the tender age of 14. He knew a few chords and a couple of scales and wanted some guitar lessons! It quickly became apparent that Newton was a very special talent.
After a couple of years intensive work developing Newton’s unique playing style, attention was turned to his song writing skills. One thing inevitably led to another and before long we were organising live shows for Newton on the London showcase circuit and were responsible for managing the young artist’s career. During this time Newton also gained a place at The Academy of Contemporary Music (ACM) where, alongside his tuition with Bob, he was fortunate enough to study with the late Eric Roche.
An initial EP was produced, television and radio performances followed. An album was produced by Bob that secured Newton’s international publishing contract and subsequent record deal.
From there Newton has released four albums ~ two of which reached No.1 in the charts (one exceeding triple platinum sales), several singles, headlined his own UK Tours and played to audiences across the world.
Not bad for a young guy who just wanted to learn how to play a few Green Day songs!
