Heidi Newfield Invites You To Her "Barfly Sessions," while Dan Penn Is "Living On Mercy"
Arriving August 28th, is the latest studio release from singer/songwriter Heidi Newfield titled "The Barfly Sessions, Vol. 1." It features fourteen tracks that as Newfield puts it, "no one was telling me what to do, it's just me." The album kicks off with the high-energy rocker "I Won't Wait Around," which finds Heidi feeling loose and singing with energy and passion. Next, she turns toward the blues with the steady flow of "Three Things," while "Barfly" is a slinky, sultry country romp that finds Newfield flexing her voice and harmonica blowing on this rhythmic number. Heidi stand front and center once again on the burning country blues of "Love Is Blind," as she grabs your attention with her soaring vocals and burning harmonica lines. The gentle ballad "When Heaven Falls" calms everything down and allows you to take a moment to reflect on her songwriting, before the album finishes with the nostalgic-sounding, high-powered country rocker "I Could Fall For You" and the deep southern swagger of "Come Hell Or High Water Blues."
