Newton Faulkner

Newton Faulkner

Newton Faulkner is a British musician. His first band was a Green Day cover band, in which he played bass guitar. His experience on the stage grew as he formed Half a Guy, a funk rock group with a quirky edge, with fellow band mates Matt Buchanan, Dave Elvy and Nicola Crawshaw. Eric Roche is undoubtedly one of Newton's biggest influences, both from a stylistic point of view (vis a vis the precussive use of the guitar's body) and though the use of tapping, uncommon tunings and inventive chord changes. Newton has recently been signed by Sony BMG records and on the 30th of July 2007 he released his debut album Hand Built By Robots. On July 29, "Dream Catch Me" entered the UK Singles Chart at number 16. The following week it had risen to number 7 with Hand Built By Robots entering the album charts at number 3. The song rose to #8 on August 12, the album to number 1 on August 26. (Source:
