"The tour that never was"
We'd made some tentative steps towards planning some shows back in late 2019. On our return from Athens in January this year, the initial plan was to schedule more dates in the UK during the summer and then onto the H.E.A.T Festival in Germany at the end of the year, including some other possible European shows. Obviously as things progressed during March and April it became clear (or rather not so clear) that with this constantly changing situation it was impossible to try and schedule anything at all. We know that a lot of fans were looking forward to us announcing shows this year, and we were getting excited to come out and play songs from the new album "Ignition". So this is a big disappointment for us and everyone concerned.
So, as this situation continues with uncertainty the decision has been taken to go forward with the writing and recording of the next studio album, for a release early in 2021 and then to come back out on the road later next year.
For our fellow artists that do manage to re-schedule shows please go out and support them, every live band and festival needs you more than ever now !!!
Thanks for your support and we'll see you as soon as we can !
Firstly, a huge thank you to all the people that have picked up a copy of "Our Time On Earth". We weren't sure how this was going to be received, it was a departure from what Steve is well known for, and it is always difficult to introduce a new band into the fold whilst trying to bring in new fans as well as retaining as many fans of Steve's previous music. We have been overwhelmed with all the positivity surrounding the debut album and so many top mark reviews
Both reviewers and fans alike have been asking if this was just a "one off" release. Well, we are very excited and pleased to announce that there will be a new Compass album in 2021. All we can say is thank you again for all your support and belief......... best wishes, Ben, Dave,Toni, and Steve
are excited to reveal the artwork and release date for the new album.

now to pre-oder from the

“So here we are again, oh, but hang on, we’re another
10 years down the line on this musical journey, I can’t believe
how quickly those years have gone by !!. I wanted to keep the concept
for this collection the same as the previous release, so once again,
I am proud and excited to present to you another double CD re-performed
and re-recorded featuring 35 songs from 2007 right through to 2017.
20 years since Newman first released the debut album, and I still
get the same excitement and joy from recording and performing music.
In the last 10 years the live band has gone from strength to strength
and I am now surrounded by a bunch of really good friends who bring
these songs to life whenever we play. My drive to write and perform
is a selfish quest, however, my inspiration is you, everyone that
supports my music, and the wonderful compliments I receive on a
daily basis, thank you for your belief, this one is for you.”
