Newdawns - projects:
"The last few years I have been experimenting with different styles of playing the music I write. Its been an awesome thing to take complete songs that I write on the bass, as a funky/soul or R&B piece, and start a heavy electronic band like D7 or a pop-rock band like The Lush Tones. This range of genre mixed with the undertones of my original compositions keeps it funky fresh and allot of fun . " said newdawns when asked about his musical range, compositions, arrangements, and multiple projects as a local artist.
