December 2020

(New York, NY) -- “From Me to You”, a hidden gem mined deep from the Janis Ian catalog, is revamped and restored on a new release by Singer/Songwriter Mark Newman; available Friday December 11th on Spotify and all the major music services.

Recently, Mark’s distribution company WBA Records secured him a spot on Janis Ian’s “Better Times Project” (based on her song of the same name, written during the pandemic and released earlier this year) which is designed to help artists who have been hurt financially during the pandemic.

The initiative encourages artists to submit their versions of her song and then asks that listeners support the artists versions. She has posted more than 150 videos so far from a wide variety of diverse artists, breaking all genre and international boundaries.

Afterwards, as a fan of her complete recordings, Mark went back and listened to some earlier material with an idea to record an additional song of hers to be released as a cover to land before the holidays. "From Me To You" - which appeared on the "Between The Lines" album (1975) - jumped out at him as the right tune at the right time - and the results are astounding!

Mark is a well traveled and in demand professional who has played with an eclectic mix of noted musical talents including John Oates (Hall & Oates) Jim McCarty (The Yardbirds), Willy DeVille (Mink DeVille), Sam The Sham, Bobby Whitlock (Derek and the Dominos) and Sam Moore (Sam & Dave).

A multi stringsman, he has mastered electric/acoustic/lap steel guitar as well as the mandolin and dobro. Mark’s musical prowess has taken him around the world several times over; working alongside many soul, blues, and rock greats of our time.

As part of several of these bands, he has shared the stage with stars such as Sting, Elvis Costello, Travis Tritt and Carla Thomas as well, and as an opening act, Mark and his band have played dates with Delbert McClinton, Les Dudek, The Doobie Brothers, Don Felder of The Eagles, David Bromberg and many others.

Before “From me To You”, his most recent offering, “Empirical Truth” was the 2019 Winner of The Long Island Blues Society Best Album Category, and represented the NY area in competition at the International Blues Challenge in Memphis earlier this year.

Past releases include 2006’s “Must Be a Pony”, 2010’s “Walls of Jericho”, and 2015’s  “Brussels” - a live acoustic-driven EP.

Dec 2020 (New York, NY) — Over the last quarter century, Singer/Songwriter (and former Judge) Chris St. John has truly led a diverse and successful professional career in the field of law. Now, his dream of lateral success in the music business is starting to become a reality, with his instantly satisfying first musical releases, “It’s Christmas Day,” and “Baby in a Manger,” which are available now - just in time for the holidays.

“These are two songs I wrote on Christmas, about 10 years apart. They are not Christmas songs in the traditional sense, but they are very spiritual. They are prayers, really,” he added.

Listen to 90.3 WHPC-FM between 9pm - 11pm on Monday December 28th and hear both tunes PREMIERE LIVE on air and online at www.nccradio.org 

Then, early after the new year, “I Need a Horse,” a song about a recent cattle roundup in Wyoming that St. John participated in, will be the proper lead single of his full-length album “I’m Dreaming,” which is set for release on January 20th, 2021.

Of “I Need a Horse,” Chris recalled, “I rode three horses. I knew the third one was right for me, so I purchased him from the cowboy, and now he’s here with me in New York,” he said. “The horse was beautiful, and we connected — he wrote the song, really.”


St. John has been a practicing attorney for 26 years; a former judge and prosecutor; worked in the State Department, participating in the Reagan-Gorbachev Summit in 1987; and lived, studied, and taught in China later that year. He was also a Congressional Aide and is now a volunteer firefighter.

In 2015, he and his friend started a not-for-profit charity called HALO Missions, which provides medical care, clothing, food, farming equipment, and surgeries for AIDS orphans and the extreme poor throughout Africa, Central America, and the Caribbean. 

“My professional career is what I do. These songs are who I am. They are about my personal life. The songs have been written over about 30 years, with four new ones written in the last several months to finish up the album,” he added.

The topics include the loss of love at a young age; the loss of his parents; the birth of his son John (now 17) and life with his wife of 27 years Elisabeth; a surprise DNA discovery; a serious illness where he was put in a medically induced coma, and a nurse sang him back to life; the loss of a young relative in a car accident and the subsequent climb out of depression; alcohol addiction and recovery; and a gift from his grandmother that he intends to return to her someday.

“I played in bands and won some talent shows in college. Folks have encouraged me to produce these songs. When I came back from Wyoming, I wrote ‘I Need a Horse.’ I produced it professionally and decided to keep on going. The album addresses sorrow, but always comes back to hope and perseverance. You just have to keep going and enjoy every day.”

“The title of the LP is ‘I’m Dreaming’ because some of these songs were dreamed up and written down when I awoke. And there are so many references to dreaming in the album. I guess I like to dream. People have told me I should write a book or make an album. This is both to me.”

The album will contain 13 original songs. Both the individual songs and the entire album can be downloaded for purchase from iTunes, Spotify, and all other musical platforms.

In the mirror selfie, the wavy-haired boy is seen wearing a sheer floral mesh shirt and a daring single feather earring. He holds his pink iPhone 5s in his hand for the snap, and has his lips slightly apart, setting hearts racing. With his hair done in a bed-head look, Timothee certainly caught the eye, but exactly why did he delete the snap is not known.
