Newton Faulkner.

After topping the charts with his soulful number one double platinum album Hand Built By Robots, featuring the hit single Dream Catch Me, singer/songwriter and guitar aficionado Newton Faulkner, followed this up with Rebuilt By Humans.

In his relatively young career, Faulkner has performed alongside singer/ songwriters James Morrison, Paolo Nutini, The Fray, Chris Martin, John Butler Trio and John Mayer. In 2008 he was nominated for a Brit Award in the Best Male category.

Faulkner croons in a voice shaped by years spent listening to Joni Mitchell, Neil Young and Tom Waits and plays guitar with a distinctive tap-pick-and-strum technique, which allows allows him to use the instrument as guitar, bass and drums all at once.

Off the back of his captivating second album and an impressive sell-out UK tour, this brilliant flame-haired, dread-locked musician is in Christchurch for one concert only - don't miss the opportunity to experience the acoustic guitar as you've never heard it before.
