Liv Warfield is a rising star and one of the most promising artists in the industry today.
Just like her musical heroines Jill Scott, Nina Simone, Tina Turner, Sade and Mary J. Blige; Warfield’s voice is powerful, yet sultry and engaging. “ I’m an emotional singer...I wear my emotions on my sleeve and thats how I like it”.
The passion and pain caused by love is evident on her debut album called Embrace Me.
"I want people to embrace the real me, the one who's been hiding for so long. I come from a long line of athletes; not artists, so music truly changed my life. It allowed me to express myself as a woman and made me a lot stronger as a person. As a writer and lyricist, it opened doors and opened my mind." Embrace Me introduces listeners to Warfield’s range of talent that includes an intoxicating blend of R&B rhythms, traditional rock-and-roll; yet its sound and lyrics are reminiscent of an era when soul music had meaning and substance.
Crooning sweetly on sexy radio-ready tracks and easy-listening ballads, Liv expertly pairs emotive poetry and lyrical storytelling amidst the soundscape of solid instrument laden grooves. To Warfield, Embrace Me is a gift for all those willing to listen, which she concludes with a live recording of the epic jewel called “Brother Man”. "I performed this song live with my band and it's the last song on the record, which is ideal because it is the perfect ending. I am singing to the love of my life and describing the depths of my love for this particular man."
Warfield might be new to mainstream audiences; but she is far from a rookie, as she has shared the stage with legendary artists such as B.B. King, The Roots, Dave Matthews Band, and Floetry. Most recently BET Jazz, Michael Baisden and Billboard Magazine have shown their love for Liv Warfield with positive endorsements or special features. Life is good for this genuine mid-western girl from Peoria, Illinois that came to Portland, Oregon on a track scholarship and was then “discovered” while finding her own passion for music seven years ago singing karaoke. “God has blessed me in such a short period of time to make the kind of progress that I’ve made. He has given me a talent that I need to share with people and that’s what I’m doing.”
Know this, Liv Warfield is a rising star and Embrace Me is a CD you can let play all the way through; so together they easily qualify for “instant classic” status. Spoken like the driven woman she is, “You can take away everything else, but my music is something that I will fight for."
