Newton Faulkner exploded back onto the scene in 2007 with his majestic debut release Hand Built By Robots and life was never quite the same for the Surrey native.

His debut single ‘Dream Catch Me’ became one of those historic anthems still enjoyed today each and every time it crosses the airwaves, his percussive take on guitar playing mesmerized the masses who were unfamiliar with that particular genre of instrumentalist, marry that with a stunning vocal ability and Faulkner was the real deal.

Fast forward twelve years and we are now looking at his first greatest hits collection The Best Of…So Far An album packed with 31 of his finest recordings, including three new tracks and covers he normally only performs live such as ‘Bohemian Rhapsody’. Faulkner’s intricate and emotive song writing style resonated with audiences globally, much like his modern day predecessor in the likes of Ed Sheeran who also touches on grass roots song writing, which connects with people on a very raw level. Faulkner’s albums are dripping with such emotive, gut wrenching and heartwarming tracks that just pull you in each and every time.

From his first album to his latest you’ll find recordings, which are on another level technically and delivered with upmost finesse. The Best Of album is crammed with many such recordings and with the addition of the new songs makes it an absolute must for any Newton Faulkner fan. His talent has brought him from an acoustic guitar to the West End and beyond and if for any reason you have not yet delved into the world of Newton Faulker, this is the album to do so.

The Very Best Of Newton Faulkner…So Far Is out now and will be dovetailed by a UK & Ireland Tour, dates below.
