New Song: dna (lyric video)

Hey everyone!

It’s been a little while – I’ve been busy working with others through music which has been an absolute joy and I’m full of gratitude that I get to do the job I do. But I managed to find some time (and energy) to work on some new music.

Today (12th of May) is Fibromyalgia Awareness Day (an invisible disability I live with), and as this song was inspired by the unkind, cruel questions I’ve dealt with over the years, it felt like the perfect day to release it into the world.

I’m 99.9% sure we’ve all been on the receiving end of questions that are meant to cast doubt or make us feel bad about ourselves, so I hope you can relate to this song and end up singing to this chorus at the top of your voice.

Here is the lyric video for ‘dna’ (written, performed and produced by Josie Newton):

Thank you for continuing to support my music.

Take care,

(Releases 8th October)

The last 18 months has been super challenging for us all, and I managed and explored all my fears, frustrations and hope how I always do, through song.

Living with Fibromyalgia has meant that being as creative as my heart wants to be has not been possible over the past decade. There was a lot I wanted to achieve but the fact that I wrote and produced all six songs on my own, at home is something I’m super proud of.

Thank you for supporting my music, I really hope you enjoy what you hear.

Just Us (Lyric Video)

Check out the lyric video for ‘Just Us’ (written and produced by me!) I wrote this song inspired by all the different ways we work through our pain and grief, especially during the challenging year+ we’ve faced.

Old Friends (Acoustic Version)

It’s been a long while since I posted a video with my face in it, but I had such a lovely response to this song that I wanted to share the acoustic version with you!

This year has been tough for us all and for many us, we have found hope and comfort through staying in touch with our loved ones, going for walks and for holding on to the many forms of art- all of which comforting us like old friends.

For those who follow who are checking out this site that don’t know, I live with Fibromyalgia (a chronic pain and fatigue condition) which has challenged me for the past decade of my life. I’ve been on a similar journey with accepting my invisible disability and I have several ‘old friends’ that have gotten me through it.

I really hope this upbeat sad song gives you both comfort and hope. We only get through this together.

New Creations 2020

It’s been one of the most challenging years for all of us, I hope that wherever you are, you are safe, well and hopeful.

I’ve been privileged enough to feel creative, I’ve written and produced 2 new songs in the last few months, both commentating on this year. Check them out here:
