Project Showcases Favorite Songs Of Burchfield Brothers In One Special Album
Nashville, TN (February 15, 2010) —- Two of the most talented and unique musicians in the Christian and mainstream genres, Dove nominated Burchfield Brothers, release their eleventh CD, Times and Seasons. The project features some of Jon and Ben Burchfield’s favorite songs from their previous albums and the CD is available on the duo’s website, www.burchfieldbrothers.com, and digitally online at iTunes.com.
“Times and Seasons can be compared to a diary spanning two decades,” explains Jon Burchfield. “The ‘times’ reflect life experiences and the ‘seasons’ are like the ever-changing chapters in our lives. Whether it’s ‘Wayfaring Stranger’ from Appalachia or ‘Laguna Lights’ from the west coast, each song evokes a memory from another time and place.”
Times and Seasons showcases twelve eclectic selections that includes; “To Him Who Sits on the Throne,” “Amazing Grace,” “Be Thou My Vision,” “Doxology,” “Heart Of Mary” and “Sunset Coast.” Many of the songs were inspired by nature itself, being the perfect example of letting go of the old and embracing the new. The project is an instrumental collection of great hymns and timeless classics that features the multi-talented Burchfield Brothers playing guitar, marimba and Irish flutes.
Burchfield Brothers remain one of the most popular touring artists who have been performing for seventeen years, have appeared before more than 1.2 million fans and logged around one million miles. They have been booked at such high-profile venues as Saddleback Church/Southern California, Crystal Cathedral/Garden Grove, CA, National Quartet Convention/Louisville, KY, Southern Baptist Convention/Dallas, TX and Moody Pastors Conference/Chicago, IL. And the Burchfield Brothers have garnered praise from their peers in the music industry: Gloria Gaither, The chords they strike are not only on their instruments, but in the hearts of us all. Chonda Pierce, Their music is rich in variety and fills the room with laughter and wonder. James Dobson, You have set a tone that is both worshipful and fun! The way you intertwine the classics with some of the world’s greatest hymns really strikes a chord with me.
Jon and Ben Burchfield grew up in the Smoky Mountains, along with their three other siblings. They were influenced by a musical family where neighbors and friends would bring their instruments for memorable evenings of Gospel and Appalachian music. Eventually, the family moved to south of Chicago, IL and there the Burchfield boys were exposed to a new world of music that included Classical, Latin and Jazz. At eighteen-years-old, Jon began to hone his guitar skills by playing in a backup band for CMA Country Hall of Fame member, Roy Clark. At the same time, Ben received a classical music degree from Olivet Nazarene University and when Jon came off the road, the brothers moved to Nashville, TN to pursue their music career. It wasn’t long before they received a Dove nomination for their “Smoky Mountain Memories” project and developed into a consistent strong touring act with numerous loyal fans.
