NASHVILLE, Tenn.—Redbird, the fourth studio recording from singer/songwriter Warren Barfield, is garnering rave reviews and mainstream media attention. Released earlier this fall, Redbird is currently available exclusively at Family Christian Stores, as well as online.
Redbird received an Honorable Mention in watchgmctv.com’s 2012: The Best of the Best, along with releases from Carrie Underwood, Flyleaf and Andrew Peterson, among others. “The raw honesty and gritty vocals of Barfield’s first studio project in four years make the effort his best to date,” says watchgmctv.com. “This is a Warren the world doesn’t know yet, but let’s just say he's giving Dave Barnes a run for his money.”
Worship Leader magazine’s “Music Mondays” recently hailedRedbird as “… a fulfilling journey that brings you along one song at a time with great songwriting and reverence…. Warren Barfield has a special voice and a wonderful touch on guitar.”
Americansongwriter.com, one of the most prestigious resources serving songwriters around the globe, recently featured Barfield’s “The Right Time” as their Daily Discovery. In addition, Barfield taped a performance of the song for KDFW/FOX 4’s “Good Day Dallas,” and will also be featured on the popular show’s Christmas broadcast with his rendition of “What Child Is This.”
Further highlighting the response to Redbird, Barfield was recently announced as a nominee for Best Indie Artist/Group in the We Love Christian Music Awards, presented by newreleasetuesday.com.
