"Michelle Newman, the lead singer of the new band, The Newman Project, has a dynamic texture to her voice. Whether Michelle is singing a straight rock tune like “Pay it Forward,” or a down and dirty number like “Jack Daniels,” the emotion always rings true. The Newman Project delivers." -- Carolyn Fox, host of the syndicated music show "KHZ Radio with Carolyn Fox." - RBC Studios


"The Newman Project is a great, fun band. Their singer serves a powerful gritty punch to the mic and the band itself rocks the house. They have amazing songs that you will find yourself singing days after you've heard them. Definitely a group you won't want to miss!" , Jessica Peterson, founder “LAIMA showcase” - LAIAM


“The Newman Project has a very troubling Joplin-ish, Joe Cocker desperation with vocals that jump right out and bite you, building and breaking like the never ending surf. . . it's very good”. Ruben Macblue, “editor, Rock City News” - Rock City News / Ruben Macblue

Bio

The Newman Project emerges onto the LA music scene bringing fresh, hook-laden songs that combine a traditional rock and pop sound with elements of funk, soul, and blues. With influences ranging from Pink Floyd to Stevie Wonder to Janis Joplin, The Newman Project composes raw, catchy melodies that correspond with their poetic lyrics. Their storytelling delivers emotionally driven songs, some poignant like “One Last Time,” some passionate like “No More Running,” and some just plain funky like “Jack Daniels.” TNP reaches for it’s classic rock roots while introducing an updated edge leaving every listener wanting more.

The Newman Project was the brainchild of lead singer/rhythm guitar player Michelle Newman and co-songwriter/producer Tre Carn. Carn listened to Newman playing acoustic originals at a small club in West Hollywood and approached her after hearing her inventive yet almost maudlin adaptation of Snoop Dogg’s “Gin & Juice.” They began meeting regularly writing new material while honing Newman’s earlier original works. Soon after, the other members of TNP, David Morihiro and Randy Fox were approached by Newman and Carn and they enthusiastically hopped aboard. TNP will off call upon Eric Stone (lead guitar) and Jesse Charland (bass) to support the band during live performances. There was an unbelievable dynamic amongst the band from the onset, an instant connection that lends itself to the songs themselves. After extensive private rehearsals as well as live performances throughout Los Angeles, The Newman Project entered the recording studio and put down samples of their work engineered and produced by the legendary Jimmi Mayweather (The Grateful Dead, Neil Young, Bonnie Raitt). Through their work with Jimmi, TNP has truly recaptured a classic sound that can be respected by all generations.
