FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
SAM NEWTON RELEASES NEW SINGLE “BURNING BRIDGES” ON APRIL 9TH, 2021
A heartfelt, optimistic apology, Sam Newton’s new single ‘Burning Bridges‘ is all about reconciliation. A catchy drum groove offers a subtle nod to Paul Simon, whilst creating a comfortable bed for an array of hook-ridden instrumentals, provided by mandolin, banjo and organ. “All we can do now is learn and grow. I am wiser, before I didn’t know.”
Burning Bridges is the third single released by Newton in the past several months and represents a period of creative growth, as he continues to experiment with unique instrumentation, production and arrangement in his newly completed home studio.
Sydney country-folk songwriter Sam Newton is an artist who has clearly studied the greats, listening to and learning the meticulous craft of combining words and melody, mood and emotion, with raw and poetic honesty.
Newton is now three albums (Set in Stone, Violet Road, Stare Into The Dark) deep into his career and since the release of his first EP nearly a decade ago, he’s played a plethora of shows through NSW, QLD and VIC – in bars, pubs and on festival stages (Dashville Skyline, Tamworth Country Music Festival, Bendigo Blues and Roots Festival, Newtown Festival, Cully Fest) and been featured in Rhythms magazine (Nov/Dec 2016), Australia’s leading roots music print publication.
Whether solo or with his band, it’s the songs that take centre-stage, delivered with that high and lonesome voice that can equally convey fractured emotions and assured resilience as he sings about subjects such as infatuation, mental health and relationships – both damaged and on the ascent.
Fans of artists such as Townes Van Zandt, Wilco, Willie Nelson and Paul Simon will find much to admire in the music of Sam Newton. From recording albums to playing shows, filming videos and streaming live songs, he’s the epitome of the modern troubadour.

“I like this kid – little twists where others would go straight.”Tim Rodgers (musician, actor, writer)
“A very strong album from a songwriter clearly refining his craft, one song at a time.”Chris Familton – Rhythms Magazine (Nov/Dec 2016)
