By Lydia Baldwin


John Newman graduated from LCoM in 2010 and went on to three Brit nominations 

After some time out of the spotlight, John Newman is back with a special UK tour taking place throughout July 2019 and has just announced that he will be special guest for global superstar, Jess Glyne at her show in Bitts Park, Carlisle, on August 4th.

He has recently returned with his single, Feelings (Island), which has over a million UK streams.

Talking about his upcoming 'The out of the Blue tour', John commented, "I want to take my music back to its roots, back to where it all started and what made me happy and appreciative of the big gigs I do now". The tour kicks off on 30 June at York The Crescent and is coming to Leeds Brudenell Social Club on 9 July. The gigs are set to be more intimate and stripped back and are almost completely sold out, if you want tickets, be quick! 

Hailing from Settle, North Yorkshire John first moved to Leeds to study on our BTEC programme in Popular Music.

"I was drawn in time and time again into the music scene within Leeds and the talent that was already there. Leeds College of Music was of interest to me because it is one of the best conservatoires in the country. As soon as I became fully absorbed I started gigging."

John first stormed onto the scene in 2013 as the vocalist and co-writer of Rudimental's, Feel the Love, a booming collaboration that propelled his career and established him as one of the most distinctive voices in pop. His debut album, Tribute, which featured smash record, Love Me Again cemented this reputation. To date, his artistry boasts three Number One Singles, three BRIT Award Nominations and six million singles sold world-wide, as well as numerous eminent collaborations; working with Paloma Faith, Nile Rodgers and Sigala to name a few. His musicianship spans the field, notable for being as comfortable on the stage as off it, working on all creative aspects including arranging, singing and writing as well as producing and directing.
