About this artist...

Decade(s) active:

We say:

Newton was a singer / songwriter who was born in Malaya and educated in England, whose full name was Roger Hartly Newton Mayson. He visited New Zealand for a few years and was Wellington based, becoming one of the early signings to Tree Records. With them he released one single in 1971 called “A Moving Silence”/”Don’t Wake Me Up In The Morning”.

His only other single, also released in 1971 on the Strange label, was called “Steel Sparrow”/”Gypsy Girl”. It is reported that he did a second single for Strange, but I have no record of this.

He vanished as quickly as he appeared.

Grateful acknowledgement is made to Bruce Sergent for letting us use this material from his great discographical site New Zealand Music of the 60’s, 70’s and a bit of 80’s.
