A good-timing, honky-tonkin’, band-leading, song-writing, love-song-singing, blues-harp-blowing, tradition-nurturing, genre-busting, crowd-carrying, full-hearted flag bearer for all that’s true about music. That’s Heidi Newfield. At least, that’s her right now – at once the embodiment of an accomplished career and the promise of artistry still to come.
Music fans know Heidi for fronting Trick Pony, which rode songs including “Pour Me,” “On A Night Like This” and “It’s A Heartache” to awards, acclaim and packed houses nationwide. She’s also recognized for her remarkable evolution as a solo artist, writing and recording the poignant “Johnny & June” from a deeply personal place. More than a radio hit and impetus for a fist full of Academy of Country Music nominations, the song brought Newfield’s multi-faceted creativity into the sharper relief it deserved.
Through clear-eyed experience and musical passion in full flame, she continues to entertain, deepen the relationship with her core fans and win over new audiences. Now in a deeply creative place in her solo career, Newfield is developing the sound for a new project due out soon.
