John Newman (born 16.06.90) John Newman is an English singer/songwriter, best known for his 2013 single 'Love Me Again'. John Newman: Childhood Newman was born in Settle, Yorkshire, England, to Jackie Newman. His father left the family when he was six years old. In his early years, he listened to a lot of Northern Soul and Motown music, and he began writing his own music at the age of fourteen. At the age of 16, he moved to Leeds, Yorkshire, England. He moved to London when he was 20 years old, and formed a band, and was signed to Island Records. John Newman: Career After meeting and befriending Piers Agget, a member of the band Rudimental, Newman was featured on their track 'Feel the Love' in May 2012. The song shot to the number one spot on the UK singles chart, as well as reaching a top 5 position in Australia, New Zealand, Belgium and the Netherlands. In November of the same year, he appeared on the band's next single, 'Not Giving In'. Newman released his own debut single, 'Love Me Again', in June 2013. The single featured as the lead single from his debut studio album, 'Tribute', which was released in October, 2013. The album received positive reviews and debuted at the number one spot in the UK albums chart. In August, 2014, he announced that he was preparing to start on a second album. John Newman: Personal Life After moving to Leeds in 2006, two of Newman's best friends were killed in a car accident. This led to a period of heavy drinking and emotional song writing, which inspired some of his later work.

If there's something to take away from this year's Isle of Wight Festival, it's probably sunburn. Unlike the mud bath of two years ago, 2014 will be remembered for serving up one of the hottest weekends I can remember for a festival, along with some crowd-pleasing performances. While not every act managed to capture their moment in the sun, all the major names delivered in spades.
But it wasn't just the music that made the weekend for many; a real sense of celebration seemed to erupt across the site. Partly fuelled by anticipation over the World Cup and partly because of the good weather, thousands of smiling faces could be seen everywhere. Sunflowers seemed to be an essential festival accessory and many opted for as few clothes as possible with t-shirts looking like they'd gone out of fashion altogether. I've even had to make a note in my diary that it's international flip-flop day on June 20th, just one of the many things I learnt around Seaclose Park this year.
The highlight of Friday afternoon should have really been local boy Tom Odell on the main stage. But his piano led ballads took some time to win the crowd over despite his number 1 album 'Long Way Down'. By the time he'd finished though, the reaction showed that he'd justified his place on the main stage billing.

A day by day recommendation of this year's festival favourites.
Coachella Festival is nearly here, bringing with it one hell of a weekend chock full of great food, exciting entertainment and, most importantly, amazing music.
Arguably California's most eagerly anticipated event of the year, Coachella settles at the Empire Polo Club in Indio once again for the fifteenth year running between April 11th and 13th on the first weekend and April 18th and 20th on the second. It's not unheard of that a music festival was so good they had to hold it twice, but as of 2012 it has become a no-brainer for Coachella. In a nutshell, it is basically a big playground for grown-ups - though of course it is a family friendly event - featuring activities such as the 3 Legged Race, the Beauty Bar, the art studios, dodgeball and the almighty Pie Eating Contest, all while you're munching on a variety of cuisine from around the state and rocking out to some of the best bands you will ever hear.
