Freedom In Writing EP Preview (Out 12th May 2020)

Hey Everyone!

Thank you for all the support so far for my little project ‘Freedom In Writing’. Enjoy a little taster before it all gets released on www.josienewton.bandcamp.com on Tuesday 12th May 2020!

I’ve put 7 tracks together; songs that I’ve been holding onto for years that I’ve never had the time, energy or space to do anything with! So I’m grateful that I’ve been privileged enough to remain safe and healthy to make music during this challenging time.

Tracklisting:
01 Move A Mountain
02 Never Gonna Get It
03 Fight Together
04 Her Interlude
05 Moral Compass
06 Fragile Gravity
07 I’ll Find You In The End

Freedom In Writing EP

Get yourselves ready…

‘Freedom In Writing’ will be ‘released’ via Bandcamp on 12th May 2020 (Fibromyalgia Awareness Day).

I’m super proud of this and I can’t wait to share it with you!

Lockdown Creations

During lockdown, I’ve been fortunate to feel creative; at times when hard truths have been overwhelming, picking up my guitar and singing my heart out has saved me.
So…
I have been working on tracks of mine that I’m most proud of, ones I want to be able to share with you, the best possible version of! I’ve written, recorded and produced everything and I can’t wait to get them up online!
The ‘Freedom In Writing’ EP is coming together and I’m planning on getting it all out to you during May! So keep your eyes pealed and your ears a-ready!
Stay safe!

Upcoming Gig! Weds 24th July 2019

Hey Everyone!

I’ve been busy with teaching guitar and vocals this past year, which I have loved, but I haven’t had the chance to perform!

So, I will be performing at Jessie Mullen’s ‘Cafe Acoustica’ night at the B-Bar, Plymouth on Wednesday 24th July from 8pm onwards. The Facebook page for the event is here.

Also, one of my guitar pupils, Alan Hyett, will also be doing his first solo set too! So come along if you can to hear some original material and show us some support!

Thank you!

New Video: ‘Nothing Less’

Hi everyone!

So firstly, I want to say thank you for sticking around and always checking my music out! As you may or may not know, it hasn’t been as easy in recent years for me to write and perform due to health reasons! But when I get the chance to do so, it means so much that you continue to support me!

Secondly, I did it! I’ve written a new song AND done a little live video of it! Please check it out, the song is call ‘Nothing Less’ and it’s about finding someone you can escape negativity, and completely be yourself, with. Hope you like it, and if you do, please ‘like’ and ‘share’!

Enjoy!

‘Write Me Beautiful’ Demo

NEW SONG ALERT!

Hey everybody! Thank you for sticking with me and supporting my music! It’s been a long journey, and continues to be, but I still love writing, making and performing music so will do my best to continue to do so!

So I’ve been sat at home, working on something a bit different with a song I wrote a few years ago, ‘Write Me Beautiful’. I’m excited to share this song with you, as it means a lot to me.

 

LYRICS
Tears falling down her face, He looks at her the same way
As she has wished before, without the horror of her own thoughts
The hurt is invisible, yet somehow I feel see through
Everything seems unwritten, yet not when I’m with you

So hold me, never let go of me
I need to read your words, to take away this hurt
Will you stay still; promise me that you will
You are the only one who’s ever made me feel

Can you write me beautiful? Like my favourite stories
Make the words read wonderful, without any worries

So hold me, never let go of me
I need to read your words, to take away this hurt
Will you stay still; promise me that you will
You are the only one who’s ever made me feel

Again, I’ve fallen off the edge
I can only blame myself
I need saving, I need saving
You’re the only one I trust
To pick me up out of the dust
And see me

So hold me, never let go of me
I need to read your words, to take away this hurt
Will you stay still; promise me that you will
You are the only one who’s ever made me feel beautiful

Thank you again for listening! X
