John Newsome is an acoustic singer-songwriting balladeer who combines soaring melodies and uplifting lyrics, mixed with vibes of home and sunlight. With foundations in the alternative CCM genre, he has self produced three independently released albums receiving National airplay, International recognition for songwriting and best male vocalist with IAMA and appearances on Channel 9s “Wesley Impact” John’s music is sure to inspire. John is currently working on his 4th album to be released in 2020.
Calling Newcastle NSW home, his songs are personal stories and experiences of faith, hope and family. He is a song writer and educator with a passion to write songs that engage your spirit, cause it to soar and give the experiences of faith and life a song to cling too.
Singing from a young age and drawn inexplicably to create, his passion is evident on songs across all his work. He and his vocalist wife, Mindy once packed up their young family for a 6 month big lap around Australia, connecting with audiences and personally delivering CDs to radio stations all over. He has a love for free camps and country Australia, singing in churches and schools where music might now reach. Balancing being a Primary school music teacher with a songwriter has its challenges, yet his determination to live his calling inspires many.
Of course, he is a humble family bloke, with a love for Crowded House, The Beatles and Jon Foreman, who just wants to sing new songs and go places with them which is why writing about himself in the third person doesn’t really suit his style. Still, that’s music for ya. Check out John Newsome’s music on Spotify, Apple Music and through his website at johnnewsomemusic.com.
