Bertie Newman Shares New Artistic Phase With New Single 'I Will'
Bertie Newman is the artist you need to start the year with softness and raw emotions. The 22-year-old singer-songwriter from Hackney is back to assert his place in the indie-pop landscape with new single 'I Will'. In the evocative song, Bertie sings a period of change and transition unexpectedly coming around a state of depression and anxiety. Far from being negative, the song is about embracing that change.
Inspired by the likes of Bon Iver, Hozier and Gregory Alan Isakov, the young singer is taking over the music industry with his sincerity and was featured on BBC Introducing London with his most recent single ‘Seaside Eyes’.
“‘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.” - Bertie Newman
