John Newman tickets for these October tour tickets will be available on Aloud.com from 9am on Friday, February 21st.
Fans of Rudimental have also borne witness to the power of John Newman live when he wowed audiences across the country as both special guest, and featured singer, on the band’s recent sell-out UK tour. Newman also wrote and was featured vocalist on Rudimental’s follow up hit “Not Giving In”.
John Newman began playing guitar and writing his own songs aged just 14 and soon learned how to record and produce himself, making his own house tracks and DJing. A few years later and all the influences start to stack up to form the basis of John’s sound.
Think the pure soul and groove of early Stax and Motown, add a dash of James Brown and Prince, a smattering of Black Keys, and mix it all together with a bit of Dangermouse. It’s all in there, it’s all great, but what really hits you is the voice. That Voice.
At 20 he moved to London, started a band, played some gigs and got signed to Island Records. His keyboard player also happened to be one of the producer/ extraordinaires in Rudimental. A few beers on a sunny afternoon in a dingy studio and the number one single ‘Feel The Love’ and follow up hit single ‘Not Giving In’ were born.
Oh and he’s still only 22.
