Tommy Newport is an 18 year old singer-songwriter and record producer. Born in Manchester, England, Newport relocated to the United States with his family when he was 6 years old. From there, he bounced around, living in Dallas and Seattle before finally settling down in Wichita, Kansas.
Tommy Newport puts all his skills on display on his debut album, Just To Be Ironic. Support for Newport has been strong since the start, with co-signs by BadBadNotGood, Giles Peterson, and Sticky Fingers. His music has also been in rotation on Best of the Week by Apple Music and it has been featured in HBO’s hit TV show, Ballers.
Newport independently released the album So Long And Thanks (under the name Milmine) in 2017, with absolutely no promotion or marketing. The project still received over 2 million streams across YouTube, Spotify, and Apple Music. The 13-track album is a personal diary from Newport and the album’s co-producer, Toronto based producer 4th Pyramid.
Tommy Newport has the heart and soul of a true musician. After the release of his first single “I Forgive You”, a funk soaked ballad that takes listeners deeper into Newport’s idyllic world, the buzz began to spread. Newport is moving forward in full force into 2019 with the announcement of his own headlining tour across North America.
