Riding Ponies to the Moon - A Musical Storybook
© 2022 Rebecca Newton/Blue Shirt Records
Rebecca Newton’s latest solo project brings music and fiction lovers a new way to enjoy both mediums in one sitting. “It’s a musical storybook,” says Newton. “It’s based on a book I’ve been working on and has a song that points to each chapter.” She included excerpts from the book, with a working title “A Simple but Kind Gesture on What Was an Otherwise Ordinary Day.” It’s a fictional memoir of Newton’s life with songs creatively woven into the project. Riding Ponies to the Moon, the title track, recalls a teen story of love and enlightenment via psychedelics in the 70s. The record tells a story of heartbreak and trauma, but also focuses on life’s lessons resulting in happiness and deep love and acceptance. It’s a beautiful piece of art, musically, visually, and literally.
