Around the block and back

Purists may whine that the best days of music are behind us, that capital “M” music has seen its peak and is no longer relevant. But here at Play It Like It's Music we believe the opposite: not only is the act of musicmaking an essential life skill with a lineage stretching back to the beginnings of human history, but the vocation of the professional musician is more vital today than it ever has been. Once a month, join musician, songwriter and producer Trevor Exter as he drops in on working musicians from every genre.

018 NewK

My friend NewK (aka John Newcott) is this month’s guest on the Pod.


Like many, I first knew him as a marketing guy for Universal and Verve Forecast back in the 90s, but as happens with all first impressions, I later had to seriously expand the slot I’d originally allocated to him in my mind.  The guy has a long history as a musician and composer as well as a deep love of the art which now, at long last, takes center stage in his life.  NewK has been around the block and back, and in this episode of Play It Like It’s Music we get to hear some of his stories, as well as some great music.  

Say hi to NewK:
