|Starfield Honored With Third Canadian Shai Award
23 May 2005
Sparrow Records band Starfield recently received its third consecutive Artist of the Year award at the 2005 Shai Awards, held last Saturday, May 14, in Toronto (Mississauga), Ontario, Canada. In addition to this year’s award, the band was honored in this category in 2004 and received a total of five awards in 2003, including Artist of the Year. The Shai Award (formerly the Vibe Award) is the Canadian equivalent of the GMA Music/Dove Award.
Beyond receiving music honors, Starfield is currently writing songs for the follow-up to its critically acclaimed, self-titled debut. The new album is slated to release in December.
Leading up to its sophomore release, Starfield will be touring with Todd Agnew this fall. The band joined Agnew last fall on World Vision’s “In the Name of Love” tour. The band is also scheduled to appear at upcoming Youth Specialties and Dare to Share events and will be hitting the summer festival circuit, making stops at Atlanta Fest, Creation East and West, Alive Fest and Kingdom Bound, among others.
Starfield performs "Love Break Me" from their self-titled debut at the 2005 Shai Awards.
Hailing from Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, Starfield signed with Sparrow Records last year as one of Canada’s most awarded indie bands. Starfield also recorded the U2 song “40” for last year’s critically acclaimed In The Name Of Love: Artists United for Africa recording, joining artists Sixpence None The Richer, Audio Adrenaline, tobyMac and others.
