Events with Tommy Newport

Tommy Newport

Tommy Newport is known for his irresistible falsetto-steeped indie anthems. Born Oliver Milmine in Manchester, England, Newport moved to the United States at a young age, eventually settling in Kansas. There, he picked up the guitar and taught himself how to produce music on his computer. Now based in Los Angeles, Newport has consolidated his style and sound into something rather extraordinary, creating his own funky, psychedelic style of pop. Garnering a substantial buzz with his 2018 debut, Just To Be Ironic, while he was still a teenager, Newport continued the paramount success with his EP’s Tommy Gun, Ultra Mango and Liquid. Now, unveiling his sophomore album Glasshead, the new 10-track release is demonstrative of the artist's growth since his debut album. Speaking of the new album, Newport shares, “When I make music, I feel my head is made of glass and when I share my music, my thoughts are visible to everyone else. The project bounces around from different genres but stays true to my sound.” Glasshead includes fan favorites “Jackpot” featuring Juno Award winning Toronto rap legend Jazz Cartier, "Slow Amnesia", "Calabasas" and "Fate." Newport has received musical placements on shows like Search Party, Ballers, Expecting Amy, I Love This For You, Never Have I Ever, Walker, Grand Crew, an Apple iPad commercial and What/If. At only 21 years old, he's built an impressive catalog, toured worldwide with bands including Lime Cordiale and collaborated with Grammy nominees EARTHGANG. Garnering critical acclaim from The FADER, Complex, Zane Lowe, Hypebeast, High Snobiety, Pigeons & Planes, PAPER, Lyrical Lemonade and COLORS to names a few, and with streaming numbers hitting over 40 million, Tommy Newport continues to shine with his unique soundscape and musical capabilities.
