Good Day Noir Family,
our “E.A.Poets Approved/Bands We Like” section is dedicated to Mark Newman. I discovered this Artist while shuffling songs on Spotify and was fascinated by his fantastic music.
From the very first notes you realize that you are dealing with a songwriter and musician of great experience.
The cadence of the new single Tulsa is groovy and immediately manages to get into your veins. A rock/blues that exudes truth, a sincere sound that speaks directly to the listener’s heart and soul.
Mark Newman’s voice is fantastic, full of nuances that make it very charming and ideal for this kind of music.
The guitar solo literally mesmerized me, the notes sounded like a cry lost in the wind.
The production is excellent, the mix, in particular, manages to make this song breathe well as each sound element has the right space in the sound spectrum.
A nice discovery that I recommend to everyone.
