Sam Newman - Sam’s career started way back in the early 90’s, performing with a variety of the UK’s premier live music acts and private function bands such as the exceptional John Oliver Band as a lead vocalist.
Sam used this incredible starting point to build on his already undeniable natural vocal gift and stage charisma to cut his teeth on the live performance circuit.
Regularly performing at The Celtic Manor Resort, Cardiff International Arena, Hilton Hotels and throughout the UK, Sam gained huge experience and expanded his vocal range, performing the hits of many artists from Frank Sinatra to Robbie Williams, Abba and beyond! And working alongside such artists as Cannon & Ball, David Essex and Tarby & Lynch to name but a few.
In the early 2000’s Sam decided to make the break and head for the bright lights of London’s West End. He has never looked back!
It has always been a passion of his to perform the great motown hits and soon after arriving in London Sam got his first break singing lead with an all-American motown group.
Such a new direction to his already established performing and vocal style, the next few years would see Sam expanding his vocal abilities as never before, performing sensationally blended harmonies with a slick choreographed show to boot, he was well on his way. Soon after, Sam joined the outstanding Soul Satisfaction, performing in the American Four Tops Show as a lead singer.
Performing the hits of the Four Tops, Temptations, Smokey Robinson and The Stylistics to name but a few Sam excelled and reached new vocal heights, playing regularly in many notable venues such as The Dorchester Hotel, The Grosvenor Hotel, Warner Leisure Hotels, Blackpool Tower Ballroom, Royal Caribbean cruises and throughout Europe.
His sweet soulful voice has been likened to Eddie Kendricks of the Temptations and Philip Bailey of Earth, Wind & Fire. And appearing alongside such artists as Heatwave, the late Edwin Star, Jools Holland, Lemar, Aswad and Tony Hadley of Spandau Ballet.
Now performing throughout the UK and Europe as a solo artist, Sam’s show encompasses the great soul and motown hits as well as legendary disco funk anthems.
