Drum Media : September 9th, Issue #922
Arriving late, I only caught the last couple of songs from Amy Newton-Banks. What a shame! With a face as lovely as Sophie Ellis-Bextor and an even lovelier voice, Newton-Banks was the most entrancing girl-with-a-guitar I’ve seen in some time. Doing so much with so little, the diminutive singer of Newcastle outfit The Bell Curve captivated the crowd with a smile, a guitar and gorgeous folk-pop songs. She closed with one of The Bell Curve’s songs, Right In Front Of Me and she chewed on its vowels and crawled up its octaves like Tori Amos. I was so impressed that I picked up her Stepping Stones and Pop-up Books EP, a charming document that suggests we’ll be hearing more from Newton-Banks in the years to come. LIAM CASEY”
