Living on four continents in five years,

 

Brett Newski has existed on the fringe of society & avoided the “American Dream” at all costs. At age 25, he took matters into his own hands by quitting all of his part-time jobs and becoming a full-time nomad, posting up in the nooks & crannies of earth and sub-letting rooms in Vietnam, South Africa, Germany and Wisconsin to write songs & recharge between tours. His sophomore LP Land, Air, Sea, Garage was recorded at a surf camp in the Sri Lankan jungle and at home in Wisconsin. Newski received praise from Rolling Stone, Paste, & The Boston Globe during a 150-date touring year & surpassing his 1000th show. He has been compared to Violent Femmes, Jonathan Richman, They Might be Giants, early Weezer, & Frank Turner.

"I like the sound and the way he is forcing the world to contend with him." -Brian Ritchie, Violent Femmes

 

"Newski offers a tough brand of DIY folk music that has evoked comparisons to Billy Bragg." -Boston Globe

 

"Loudest acoustic act ever." 
-Eon Hare, Daytrotter Engineer
