If you ever have the pleasure of meeting Tommy Newport, you can tell he is funny and easy-going. He likes to laugh and enjoys making others laugh too.
Everybody needs someone like that in life, and Tommy is one of those people.
I’m not just saying this to please him. I’m saying this because he was either laughing or smiling 95% of the time I spent with him. He’s just a kind person.
Tongue & Cheek is about that lifestyle, not taking life too seriously. In my opinion, this single is even about his personality as well.

Who is Tommy Newport?
Born in Manchester (UK), Tommy Newport settled in Kansas when he was young. He then picked up the guitar and taught himself how to produce music on his computer. Over time, he created a funky and psychedelic pop style inspired by early-2000’s bands like MGMT, The Killers, and Phoenix.
Since then, Tommy has received musical placements on shows like Search Party, Ballers, Expecting Amy, an Apple iPad commercial, and What/If. He has recently released his newest single, Tongue & Cheek, which has garnered over 60k plays on YouTube since its release a month ago.

You will be expected to be quietly at peace with everything and anything you have or will go through in your life.
That’s not an introduction to a story. It’s just how this song makes you feel.
