“It is difficult to label my music and I’m not sure that I want that. Most
important is freshness, creativity and pleasure. I write my own songs and like to think the lyrics are an important part of them too. So I always try to tell a story in them, even if that story is about love! Like
everybody else I have musical heroes too who influenced me enormously. PaulWeller and Andy Partridge of XTC are still among my all time heroes. But time doesn’t stand still and modern times have their own heroes influencing me too.”
So go check the music of Newland and enjoy.
