Indie / Indie-Pop / Indie-Rock
Tommy Newport is building an empire from the ground up. The 19-year-old singer/songwriter and producer is based in Wichita, Kansas, but has reached international audiences with his smooth, atmospheric, sink-into-the-couch blend of bedroom pop, indie rock and funk. After his independently released So Long And Thanks album saw over a million streams across platforms (under the moniker Milmine), the young songcrafter released his debut album Just To Be Ironic under his new moniker, which he co-produced with Toronto-based producer 4th Pyramid. When you listen, expect painfully honest lyrics, skilled production, and a dreamy trip into the mind of Tommy Newport himself.
Coming off of his first headlining tour, Newport has spent the first half of 2019 teasing a handful of singles that indicate the singer has a few more tricks up his sleeve. Keep your eyes on this developing indie songwriter - he won't stay under the surface for long.
