Starfield Takes Flight with Sparrow Records

Posted on

Fresh from its recent Juno nomination, Starfield is signing a record deal with Nashville’s Sparrow Records after six months of talks. Sparrow, which specializes in faith-based music of many genres – from alternative rock to celtic, is home to such prominent artists as Steven Curtis Chapman, The Newsboys, Switchfoot, The Elms, ZOE Girl, and Nicole Nordeman. As part of assembling a team around the label, Starfield has also partnered up with CAA booking and Proper management.

Things have been happening quickly for the Winnipeg-based acoustic pop/rock outfit, founded by brothers Tim and Jon Neufeld just over three years ago. March saw them win five out of five of the Vibe Awards – a celebration of Canadian Christian music - they were nominated for, including Artist of the Year and Group of the Year. In February, Starfield was nominated for a Juno Award for Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year.

The band will head south to Nashville at the beginning of July to begin recording a new album, which will include re-recorded versions of six songs from their Juno-nominated sophomore release, Tumbling After. Starfield hopes to release the album in February 2004. In mid-September 2003, Starfield will head out on its first U.S. tour, while a cross-Canada tour is in the works for later this year.
