John Newman - Tribute Album Review


John Newman's second release Tribute is 14 tracks of uplifting, positivity from the modern soul singer. The opening track Revolve, features a spoken word from actor Idris Elba, raises hopes for the album with a strong, militant message. Revolve is a starter point yet somehow is misplaced within the album due to its minute and a half long eerie, sci-fi esque' music.

John Newman - Tribute Album Review

Bursting into All My Heart - an upbeat, energetic track- sees Newman back to his signature style. Something Special takes a slower pace during the intro of the song showcasing the 25 year olds distinctive vocals before leading into an electro synthesizer chorus.

Notably one thing gathered from listening to the album is it would be a great to live listen. Tracks Lights Down and Never Give It Up are itching to be toured with dramatic strings, vibrant vocals and can't help yourself but dance along to the catchy melodies. Leading single Come And Get It, which was released October 16th, is a standout point on the album. The pop melodies and catchy hooks helped bring Newman back into the charts following his phenomenal success with debut album Tribute.

Isle of Wight Festival 2014 Review


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.

Isle of Wight Festival 2014 Review

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.

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.

John Newman - Tribute Album Review


First gaining significant exposure as the vocalist on Rudimental's number one hit 'Feel the Love', John Newman has released his first solo album 'Tribute' and, like the title suggests, the album unfolds as a mark of respect for the artists who have inspired him. Harking back to powerful soloists of years gone by, the Settle, North Yorkshire-born and raised singer-songwriter follows the path that has been so readily trodden by recent UK artists and, judging by his success already, Newman won't be the last neo-soul artist to emerge from the UK in years to come either.

John Newman - Tribute Album Review

As he lists the artists he is dedicating his 'Tribute' to at the beginning of the self-titled album opener, name checking everyone from Ike & Tina Turner to Kings of Leon, Aretha Franklin to Britney Spears, Newman makes it clear immediately that, although his sound owes much to the 60s and 70s, he is very much a product of these times. 

Heavy on the strings and pianos, his musical choices on 'Tribute' have been made so as to highlight the power behind his vocals, rather than use studio trickery and club-friendly beats that may result in another successful single or two, but would otherwise result in convoluted album with no real identity. A wise move on Newman's behalf, for his is a voice that does need to be revered. Like a male Emeli Sandé, Newman has cast off his electronic beginnings to impose himself as a 'proper singer' and, like Sandé, his abilities as a vocalist suggest staying power.
