SAUL NEWBURY





Songwriter and guitarist Saul Newbury grew up listening to the likes of Nick Drake, John Martin and Bert Jansch. So it’s no surprise that the rich melodies and deep-felt lyrics of these folk legends came to inspire and influence Saul’s unique style. His experimental approach and altered tunings create a beautiful indie folk vibe, perfect for lazy Sunday afternoons.

Born in the summer of 1983, Saul grew up in rural Somerset, a landscape that has inspired poets, artists and musicians for centuries. But it wasn’t until his late teens that he finally picked up a guitar. Quick to learn, he began composing his own songs in his early twenties.

Saul attended The Academy of Contemporary Music, graduating in 2006 with a degree in Sound Design. Since then, he’s continued to compose, deepening the intricate sounds of his tracks that today draw inspiration from a range of styles, including bossanova, swing and folk, to name but a few.

When not writing his own music or performing at intimate gigs and festivals, Saul has shared his knowledge and experience through guitar tutoring. His thoughtful yet playful approach has enabled him to develop an established client base around Farnham where he'd settled after studying at university. Now, living south of Bristol he’s stepped back from teaching in order to focus primarily on promoting himself as a recording and performing artist, with hopes to release his debut album in 2019.
