TRICK PONY Heidi Newfield & Keith Burns

December 9, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm

| $40 - $45


If you were to choose one word for Heidi Newfield and Keith Burns it could very well be ‘resilient’. From their Trick Pony years as a group, to a split to explore individual pursuits, then back again to a reformation with the original members and finally to a move from group to duo, they have continued as one of the highest energy and truly unique acts in country music.

As the duo tells us, this re-emergence has had a profound positive effect on the duo. As Keith Burns put it, “We began this process with a complete overhaul of our organization. This has resulted in a flood of creativity and passion that has been contagious.” Heidi Newfield added that the end result will be the best music they have ever made. “This will be the first time in our history that we will have complete creative control of a project. We finally have the creative freedom to which every true artist aspires. We can’t wait to share our musical vision with our fans and fans of music everywhere.”

“It seems like all truly good things happen naturally, and that’s no different with the reformation of our band today” says Newfield. “We have always had a very distinct sound, and both Keith and I feel that we have gained so much perspective in this crazy music business – where, let’s face it – it’s a ‘what have you done for me lately’ kind of game. There seems to be a very interesting open mindedness happening in country music today where I think there’s now a window open for artists like us to step up and continue fulfilling our creative goals and building a whole new fan base, while reminding loyalists why they dug us from the start. We are excited to show people that we are back!”

In 2001, Trick Pony became one of the most talked about new acts in country music. The former trio cranked out several hits including their self-penned debut single and still ever catchy “Pour Me,” followed by “On A Night Like This,” “Just What I Do,” “On A Mission,” their Top 20 cover of Bonnie Tyler’s 70’s hit “It’s A Heartache” and more.

“It’s like the walls are completely down and it’s allowed Heidi and myself to be so much more open with each other about writing, listening to outside material and basically recreating this brand” Burns explains. “We are really enjoying this experience, and it really is a team!”

Part of the new direction of Newfield & Burns will include the trade off of vocals between the two, while still maintaining those signature big harmonies. The first taste of the new music, “It’s A God Thing,” is currently available for digital download through iTunes. “It’s a special song, that perhaps people wouldn’t expect to hear from us” says Newfield. “We wrote it about some true to life experiences we had gone through, and wound up with this beautifully spiritual and powerful song.”

Between tour dates, Heidi and Keith will be recording their new Trick Pony album that is slated for release in the second quarter of 2017. For updates and an inside look at the making of the new project, go to www.trickponymusic.com.
