Starfield (NASHVILLE, Tenn.) Nov. 3, 2008—Sparrow recording artist Starfield was the top winner at this year’s Covenant Awards held Friday, October 24. Taking home six trophies, the band won in every category for which it was nominated.

Starfield nabbed wins for “Group of the Year,” “Artist of the Year,” “Album of the Year” (I Will Go), “Praise & Worship Song of the Year” (“Reign In Us”), “Modern Worship Album of the Year” (I Will Go), and “Recorded Song of the Year” (“Hosanna”). This year’s awards marked the third consecutive “Group of the Year” win for Starfield as well as repeat wins in the categories of “Recorded Song of the Year” and “Album of the Year.” The band now boasts a career total of 13 Covenant Awards.

"It's incredibly fulfilling to be recognized in Canada for what we're doing as a band,” says Starfield’s Tim Neufeld. “The people voting have watched us grow up, have played alongside us, and have mentored us. We’re very proud to be a small part of what God is doing through music in our home country.”

Produced by the Gospel Music Association Canada, the Covenant Awards is the pinnacle event in what is known as GMA Canada Week. Running from October 21-25, activities included a national music conference, artist showcases, talent search competition, worship night and industry awards banquet. The 30th Annual Covenant Awards took place at First Alliance Church in Calgary Alberta Canada. For more information and a complete list of winners, visit www.gmacanada.ca.

Starfield gained strong momentum, achieving its best radio success, album sales and touring season in the band’s six-year history with its last project Beauty in the Broken. Then inspired by its home congregation, Starfield began to write new songs of substance and style. The substance became the theme and title of the album, I Will Go. The project has made Starfield’s musical mission very clear. The band now brings an intentional message that encourages the listeners to help a hurting world. Currently Starfield is headlining its first U.S. tour, the “I Will Go” Tour, visiting more than 20 cities through mid-November. For more information, visit www.starfieldonline.com.
