“angelic with high sweet falsettos, yet with power behind it, and unabashedly rock n’ roll..”

- Chris Goudreau @ The Valley Advocate 

“musical stylings are reminiscent of a young Johnny Cash, meshed impeccably with smooth as silk vibrato and a boyishly charming, yet mature vocal strength.” - John Sevigne @ Libro Musica 

“A voice that brings warmth to the heart, lifting the veil that sometimes falls over the beauty in this world.” - Alison Scarlet @ Story Spun 

Seth Newton has played music his entire life. Starting out playing with heavy rock bands in the Worcester, Massachusetts area and going on to complete multiple nationwide and regional tours including performances at some of the most prestigious, notable venues across the country. Sharing the stage with acts such as Deftones, Mae, Jimmy GneccoMatt McAndrew and countless others. With multiple studio album releases ranging from straight forward, powerhouse rock anthems all the way to the other side of any musical environment with ambient, abstract and atmospheric acoustic & vocal experimentations. Performing over 150 times & touring roughly 7,000 miles in the past year, his performances are something you will not soon forget.
