Newton Faulkner knows all about invention. When he emerged in 2007 he was the fleet-fingered prince of sparkling guitar pop. A graduate of Guildford Academy of Contemporary Music, the then 22-year-old kid from Surrey had a million-selling, number one hit with his debut album Hand Built By Robots.2009’s Rebuilt By Humans was another joyous burst of sparkle-pop which hit number three on the UK album chart and then after invention, innovation, reinvention and creation, came Newtown Faulkner’s third album, Write It On Your Skin – an album that returned him to the number one spot.
The Eric Roche-taught songwriter took a new approach to making an album the fourth time round, turning his home into the virtual musical Big Brother house for five solid weeks, as he opened up the making of the album Studio Zoo to everyone, everywhere. Fans could log in online and follow every detail of the ups, downs, dramas and laughs including guest appearances from Mumford & Sons’ Ted Dwayne, India Bourne, Nick Harper, and Thomas Leeb. Newton is currently in the studio writing his next album.
Newton Faulkner will host a masterclass at the London Acoustic Guitar Show shedding some of his secrets to success, chatting about his guitar collection, as well as sharing technique tips and tricks. Newton joins the Manic Street Preachers’ James Dean Bradfield, Nile Rodgers, Glenn Tilbrook and Chris Difford of Squeeze, Gabrielle Aplin and many more over 13 & 14 September 2014 for the UK’s biggest and best guitar event.
