Hear Mark Newman's "Must Be a Pony"

Monday, November 27, 2006



Hear Must Be A Pony:
http://www.v-room.info/MN/beapony.mp3

New York, NY-Mark Newman plays a mean slide guitar, sings his heart out and writes the kind of songs that resonate with universal longing. His Must Be A Pony debut (Danal Music), released today, features 13 originals by Newman and some of his friends (including Sam The Sham) plus a vaguely disquieting yet profoundly effective cover version of Barry and Robin Gibb's 1967 hit New York Mining Disaster 1941.

With a shifting cast of musicians-including Steve Holley (ex-Wings) on percussion and Anton Fig (David Letterman Band) on drums--Newman creates musical environments that surround his poetic lyrics in tasty soundscape vistas that accentuate but never intimidate his message, mainly that no matter how cynical the adult in one gets, the answer lies in attempting to rediscover the unbridled optimism of childhood.

Newman's the ultimate stringmaster (he picks guitar, lap steel mandolin and dobro) and his sense of soul is innate (so much so that R'n'B legend Sam Moore has him in his band).
