Tommy Newport is an indie crooner who finds charm in the mundane. A young cat born in Manchester but currently residing in the States, Tommy Newport bounced around from Dallas to Seattle before settling down in Wichita, Kansas. Although it’s no home for superstars and fame, Tommy Newport embraced the simplicity of Midwest living and immersed himself in his craft rather than fade into the monotony of corn fields and wheat prairies.
The 18-year-old artist has penchant for alternative-pop and soul and his new single “Bubblegum” follows suit. Blending organic instrumentals with soprano synths and falsetto vocals, Tommy Newport’s latest offering is a well-rounded pop coup. Staggered melodies stack up before gently slinking down into a simple, soft sounding beat. “Bubblegum” comes equipped with a mellifluous ebb and flow that dances between up and down tempos in equal parts prompting an engaging listening experience from its first note to its last. An intricate yet approachable bedroom-pop track, “Bubblegum” is another Tommy Newport classic. Listen below.
