Hello, 

My name is Faith Bardill. I'm an independent singer/songwriter from Sanford, NC.  

A little bit about me: I'm the 2018 Carolina Country Music Awards Female Artist of the Year, the 2016 Carolina Music Awards Female Country Artist of the year, and the 2015 Carolina Music Awards Teen Artist of the Year. I perform solo shows and full band shows throughout the country, as well as Belize. I am currently on Music Mafia Radio with my original “When The Dust Settles” which placed in the top 30 several weeks this year - recently placing in the #1 #2 and #3 spots. Current music can be found on Spotify, Amazon, Reverbnation, and other streaming sites.

I've attached my latest original, “Not So Broken”, recorded at OmniSound Studios in Nashville and released 04/01/2020. I am looking to get radio play and any exposure that I can get on this song.

About this song: I wrote this song for anyone who has ever felt broken. This song was written over a 3-year period because it was so important to me to tell this story right since it’s the story of my life. My mother left me when I was 4 years old. So, in dealing with the aftermath of that I became far too familiar with that broken feeling. However, I was blessed to have grandparents who not only adopted me but have supported my dreams since they first heard me sing. Through music, the Grace of God and love of my family I now know the beauty in overcoming that brokenness. This is my story and my hope is that anyone who feels broken for any reason can find a sense of strength through the words of this song. Maybe you’ll find that you’re “Not So Broken” after all. 

Please give “Not So Broken” a listen. Any airplay you could give me would be greatly appreciated. I'm open to doing radio interviews in person or via phone call or Skype. This song will be playing on 93.9 Carolina Country, Myrtle Beach, SC this month, as well as 94.7 WQDR in Raleigh, NC. I'm just looking to get as much exposure as I can with “Not So Broken” and several additional Nashville recorded songs that will be released over the next several months. Thank you for your time and I look forward to hearing from you.

The Jayplayers - Bio 

Our first rehearsals were in a local park; something of singing outside, in summertime, for no one in particular, that speaks to the natural ease of our collective relationship with music” – remarks The Jayplayers, of their formation in 2013 in Hershey, Pennsylvania. Their songwriting is unassumingly authentic, derived from a shared, somewhat unconscious viewpoint. It seems their process was one in the same – to not really have a process; to write without intention, merely recording song ideas as they overcame their minds. “Our songs are most simply commenting on the human condition; words and music in harmony, made to strike a chord in the hearts of many.” 

The award winning Americana/Roots Rock act, based around the songwriting of Keeley McCue and Chris Weidensaul, has developed from an acoustic duo into a full electric band set up as well. This has resulted in their debut LP, Glitter & Wine (2016) and sophomore EP, The Jayplayers: Little Bit Country (2018), which was recorded in the renowned MilkBoy Studios in Philadelphia. Furthermore, they have just released their highly anticipated single, I Still Love You, in January 2020 across all digital platforms worldwide (iTunes, Spotify etc.).

Over the past six years, not only has their collection of songs grown into multiple records, but they have also gained great notoriety for their hundreds of live performances. Most recently They debuted at such nationally recognized festivals as the Philadelphia Folk Festival, Kutztown Folk Festival, and MusikFest, as well as, received the 2018 PHLlive Center Stage Country/Folk music award from the Philadelphia City Council. You will surely be hearing even more from The Jayplayers soon - so stay tuned!
