Bertie Newman – I Will

Track of the week. With more than three million cumulative Spotify streams already under his belt, 22-year old singer and songwriter Bertie Newman might be the biggest artist you may not have heard of… yet.

‘I Will’ is a beautifully sincere and emotive piece of melodic indie-pop that was inspired by change, and the fleeting nature of feelings.

“‘I Will’ explores the shift of my past pre conceptions and associations with particular objects, places and people to how I feel now. I wanted to show the change in my mental state by making an ultimately happy and hopeful song, sound somber, just as I once felt.” 

To date, this rising Hackney-born talent has received support from BBC Introducing, while also landing placements on playlists as noted as Apple Music’s Acoustic Chill and New in Singer-Songwriter.
