Дебютировав в 1998 году, "Newman" последовательно продолжила
выпускать высококачественные альбомы.
"The Art Of Balance"- восьмой альбом группы.
Newman was formed in 1997 by Singer/Guitarist Steve Newman. He enlisted
the help of Mark Mulholland (Drums) and William Marshall (Bass) for the
first self-titled album which was subsequently released in Germany that
In 1999 Newman signed to a British label for a four album deal which
spawned the albums "One Step Closer”, "Dance In The Fire”, "Sign Of The
Modern Times” and "Heaven Knows”. The first of which saw the title track
"One Step Closer” chart in Japan. Those albums established Newman as
one of the top UK rock bands with a reputation for producing
well-crafted melodic rock.
In 2006 Steve parted ways with his label and formed his own venture
Chrome Dome Records. Later in 2007 "Primitive Soul” was released to
great reviews around the globe and was followed in 2008 with the double
CD "Decade”. The first CD charting the bands career so far and adding a
second CD of unreleased material. Steve then worked towards
re-establishing the live band by recruiting Neil Richardson (Guitar),
Paul Boyle (Keyboards), Nic Lipscombe (Drums), and Terry Horne (Bass).
In 2009 the band played Z Rock Festival and supported John Waite on his

bar sonically it also proved again that Steve Newman has a talent for
producing quality hook laden, melodic rock. This release went on to
become one of the most successful albums of Steve's career.
The band, with new bassist Dave Bartlett played various shows to support
the new album including the Cambridge Rock Festival and after enlisting
the talents of a new Guitarist in Shaun Bessant the band were asked to
play at the prestigious Firefest Festival that year and a CD/DVD was
recorded for future release. This brings us to 2011 and after the
signing and release of the much acclaimed Big Life album featuring Steve
Newman and Mark Thompson-Smith. The relationship between AOR Heaven and
Steve Newman continues with the release of Newman's brand new studio
album "Under Southern Skies”.
This CD, recorded and produced once again at Steve's Blue Room Studios
features 11 songs much in the style of Newman's earlier work but taking
in modern influences present in the crisp up to date production. The
album once again features Steve Newman on Vocals, Guitar, Keyboards, and
Rob McEwen taking on Drum responsibilities. There is also an appearance
by Shaun Bessant playing Lead Guitar on the track "If He Loves You”.
