“Everybody Wanna Be Us”
If there’s one thing Trick Pony knows when it comes to music, it’s how to stay relevant in an ever changing business where many come and go. The longevity of the band, founded by both Heidi Newfield and Keith Burns, has them continuing to run the gauntlet with their creative minds, high octane live show, and the heart to deliver their best music yet.
After a musical hiatus in December of 2006 to pursue different creative paths, Trick Pony reformed as a duo in 2014, where they have been steadily building a new full-length album bringing back an enhanced and current version of what put Trick Pony on the map in the first place.
“It seems like all truly good things happen naturally, and that’s no different with the reformation of Trick Pony 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 Trick Pony is back!“
