Singer Amy Newton

Thanks so much to the wonderful singer/songwriter Amy Newton for playing at my book launch at The White Lion Pub in Braunton. Amy is an incredible live performer and has also released two fantastic albums. The first was released in June 2005 and was called “Lost For Words” and the second in 2008 called "Which Hand". They have sold well on iTunes and in local shops and tracks have been played on BBC Devon FM, Lantern FM and Blast Radio, Reading. She has also played at theatres and festivals including Glastonbury. Here's a couple of quotes from the music press:

“Live music from the main stage played day and night, including stand out performances from the up and coming and supremely talented Amy Newton (www.amynewton.com) who performed before heading off to Glastonbury to appear on the New Band Stage.” Digital Music Magazine Aug 2005

"Amy Newton Lost for words Former LIPA student and singer/songwriter/guitarist Amy releases a debut collection of crafted, delicate and tender homegrown songs which caress the soul and twist expectations. Remember her name." Musician March 2006
