A little over a year ago I was really missing playing rock shows so decided to buy a bass and join the first punk band I found on Craigslist that sounded good (and let me join). That band is The Newports, and oh man, it has been a blast. My initial plan was to essentially show up and play and not contribute much as a composer, but as we got to know each other I started helping a bit with songwriting. It’s been very rewarding.
Our first EP, That’s Fine, is out today. It’s available via all the big digital services, though bandcamp treats us best, so here’s a bandcamp embed:
