Josie Newton has been writing songs ever since she could, but started performing her original material when she was 14. Catching the songwriting bug, Josie hasn’t stopped since then, continuing to challenge her ability in a range of styles and genres. You can check them out here:

‘COLOUR ME IN’ EP
Josie released her debut EP back in 2010, including four original tracks recorded with a band. You can purchase the EP on iTunes; Colour Me In EP or stream through Spotify. The band performed this EP live for the release show to a sell out crowd at The Barbican Theatre in Plymouth.
Josie’s latest challenge has been writing music for children, inspired by her dissertation project on how to write and record a successful children’s song. With experience in this field writing music for Sing up, ‘My Harmony’ and ‘The Beach Song’ back in 2010, Josie was dedicated to writing music for children. This track was part of a Demo EP that was produced for the degree module.
