Festival season gets into high gear as Summer goes official this week. Tonight it’s a short-ish set from Blue-eyed Northern Soul practitioner John Newman, recorded by the venerable VPRO in Holland with a huge and enthusiastic audience.
Newman has been having a solid run, these past two years – getting huge praise from the press and sales to match in 2013 – Two nominations, including Best British Male Singer for the 2014 Brit Awards. So far, so good.
His tour has been going down very well this year, with a knock-out performance at this year’s Coachella Festival. By the sounds of it, it’s a repeat performance at Pinkpop.
If you’re not familiar, here’s a sample to get acquainted with John Newman – if you are; further evidence you’re in the right place.
