|SINGER/SONGWRITER WARREN BARFIELD JOINS REUNION RECORDS ROSTER
11 July 2005
The industry’s breakout new artist of 2003 Warren Barfield has signed with Provident Label Group’s Reunion Records as announced last night in Denver at the Christian Booksellers Association International Convention. The announcement was delivered via video by labelmate Third Day prior to Barfield taking the stage at CBA’s Sunday Night Live Showcase where he performed new songs from his much-anticipated sophomore album set to release early 2006 on Reunion.
Barfield notes, “I am very excited about becoming part of Provident. They’ve been very kind and supportive of me since I first came to Nashville.” He adds, “I am just so thrilled to finish this new record. It’s been nearly two years since the last album. So, I have had a long time to pour out my heart in songs and experience different seasons of my life to write about. I am anxious about getting new music out where people can hear it.”
In addition to his Sunday Night Live performance, Barfield will also showcase new songs at Provident’s CBA Monday night Big Ticket Event this week at the Denver Performing Arts Complex.
Barfield’s self-titled debut album released August 2003 on Creative Trust Workshop and was distributed through Provident Distribution. The album delivered two top ten singles with “My Heart Goes Out” and “Mistaken.” Barfield was named the #1 New Artist by Radio and Records Magazine in 2003 and has toured with artists including Third Day, FFH, TobyMac, Big Daddy Weave, among others.
The son of a North Carolina preacher, one of the numerous reasons why Warren Barfield is such a rare entity lies in his humble beginnings. Instead of taking the predictable path for most aspiring singer-songwriters, this young artist spent five years (between the ages of 18 and 23) logging almost 200,000 miles in his trusty ’93 Mustang, carting himself and his acoustic guitar from church to church all over the U.S. all year round, all by himself, patiently honing his infectious, earthy baritone, complex instrumental prowess, and expert stage presence—and without a hint of expectation before his talents were discovered by Scott Krippayne.
