Producer, Composer, Songwriter
Velvet Echo Studios founder Steve Newman is a composer and producer in Provo, Utah. He studied classical guitar under Lawrence Green and has abundant experience in guitar pedagogy. Growing up listening to his parent's vinyl collection gave him a profound love and affinity for multiple styles of music from vintage rock to pop. With an ear for high end sound, Steve is passionate about finding sonic combinations that he says "reach through and grab you, both by the spine and the heart, you know?". He loves finding new ways to craft sounds and mixes that stand out in the best possible way.
Steve has performed with multiple bands both on the east and west coasts. His music has been featured on ESPN, MTV, NBC's Today Show, and television programming internationally.
He has a bachelor's degree in Commercial Music from Brigham Young University, where he gained a love for collaborative songwriting. When not working in the studio he enjoys spending time with his daughter, is a tabletop and board game enthusiast, and smoking meats in his pellet grill.
