Born in San Diego, I grew up in the small central California town of Ojai with an older brother and a single mom, who worked long hours to raise us. A musical talent, she played and sang "Keys in The Mailbox'\" at a local (BanDar) competition and won. "A Hill" is my song for her inspired by her struggles and successes.
In 2003 I attended the Durango songwriters expo and got a chance to meet with heroes like Jeffrey Steele John Anderson and Walt Aldridge. Taking away secrets of 'writing tight with a lot of furniture' and the importance of the first note, word and line. Knowing the difference between a personal home run and a commercial hit. These songs are a representation of what I have completed with more on the way!!
I Married my Muse on 02/02/2002 We have a blended family of 8 kids (+2 dogs and a cat).
I have gained so many great experiences raising kids and traveling with family and putting those experiences to music. Now is the time to see what I've got. I hope you enjoy this and share it with your friends and the music industry. I could use the money! . God Bless. Rick (McKay) Newton.
A special thank you to my producer Harry Orlove who "gets" me and has a great talent for making songs come to life.
