"A dreamy off beat landscape, rich with imagery and emotion. A journey constantly changing and yet strangely familiar....
Tom manages to combine the exotic with the ordinary to make extraordinary music. If Salvador Dali and Turner had a child it would sound like this. It manages to be both desolate and then an Oasis of sound. Tom paints pictures and I like them." Sarah Hubball.

Viral Discs and Downloads is a new label formed by producer Tom Newman (Tubular Bells) who produced many multi million selling albums for Mike Oldfield and Virgin Records and Paul Brett - Musician, 12 string guitarist, Journalist, Guitar Designer and Artiste Manager. It is our intention to release through VIRAL, music that we like. It's as simple as that. No hype - No bullshit - Just music right across the wide spectrum of its appeal and sometimes far beyond.
Sir Richard Branson says : "Without Mike Oldfield’s ‘Tubular Bells,’ it is quite conceivable that the Virgin Group may never have got off the ground. Without Tom Newman, ‘Tubular Bells’ may never have been recorded. Tom has produced a version with schoolchildren from across Ireland. It’s got its own magic and is well worth downloading. Tom's idea is to give young musicians the opportunity to re-create classic albums and record them in situ, with many sections actually being recorded in the classroom. Tom and guitarist Paul Brett have set up a new label, Viral Discs&Downloads, and intend to undertake similar projects in the future to bring together children and communities through the power of music."
