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.
