SAM'S MUSIC

 A stylish and glittery romp through the Synth-Pop world of lust, perseverance, scandal and dreams. Samantha ignites the senses with her appetite for catchy hooks, shimmery keyboards and tasty loops - exploring everything from being at the mercy of the unknown in "Blue Sea" to championing a dream on her title track "Somethin' Good" to sex in the friendly skies with "Hands On Me'. Samantha's beautifully dynamic and expressive vocals paint sensual vignettes of desire, betrayal, love and longing. Produced by Michael Jackson's "This Is It" programmer Dave Polich, all are invited to bite into this tasty and revealing Synth Pop 2011 release from the Songbird who touts an international fan base for her iconic pop culture voice-over work as "JEM" and "JERRICA" in the beloved animated cartoon series "JEM AND THE HOLOGRAMS"

MUSIC REVIEW

MUSIC CONNECTION MAGAZINE / JANUARY 2013
Newark's synth-pop material is expertly produced. The erotic big-beat "I got everythig" is post-Abdul dance pop with all It's charms on It's shiny surface. The songs decent hook, dressed with vintage synth FX, builds drama and makes for a solid outing. Bursting with optimism "Somethin' Good" mines a similar vein with excellent vocals. Newark's voice is best on "Take me as I am" where the track takes a back seat to the singers warm maturity. In fact, the ballad is truly where she shines.

MUSIC REVIEW

"By Wes LuAllen -Top 25 Musical Happenings of 2011 
Samantha Newark – "Something Good
This is the first album I hit when I want to listen to my MP3s. I start with “Hands on Me”, “Milk and Honey” or “Lover” and just start shuffling through there. To say I’m not biased would be a lie. I don’t want to say that being Jem/Jerica from the 80s cartoon is the only thing that Sam has done but it certainly puts butts in the seats so if I have to say that’s what she’s famous for to get people in the door to hear this amazing album, then so be it. Don’t pigeonhole her because you’ll just embarrass yourself. The album is great and her voice is amazing. This album almost slipped through my fingers and I’m damn glad it didn’t.

MUSIC REVIEW

GAY.NET / 2012 "Somethin' Good is somethin' great!" 
"With each track written by Newark herself Samantha is a storyteller as well - Somethin' Good is Playful, vulnerable and sultry, an absolute joy for any fan of synth-pop—or lover of great music for that matter. Expressive, cleaver and compulsively catchy, Somethin’ Good is everything a great pop album should be."

MUSIC REVIEW

'Somethin' Good"
by Johnny M. Sugar
Samantha Newark's new album a number of electronic styles into a coherent whole, stocked top to bottom with melodic hooks, jumping synths, and a sly, winking humor. Retro harmonies mesh effortlessly with a future-forward attitude that practically leaps from the speakers. More than anything, the album sounds sincere, the product of an artist who knows what she wants. Samantha Newark has created an album all her own. It is, of course, truly outrageous, but it’s also the work of a serious, dedicated artist following her own muse with amazing results. Jem would be proud.
