Christian Music Artist Jeni Varnadeau to Perform at Bluefield College

In the five years since embarking on her professional music career, Jeni Varnadeau has grown from a promisingly talented college graduate to a
confident and seasoned singer/songwriter. And, on Thursday, September 13,
the rising new contemporary Christian artist will perform live in concert at
Bluefield College as part of the school’s Coffeehouse Series.

Varnadeau’s path to maturity began with the release of her debut pop CD
“Colors of Truth” in 1996. In 1998, she followed up with the guitar-driven
“No Hesitation,” and her latest CD, “Tracing His Hand,” is a more serious,
yet fun step, she said, toward music with a ministry.

“I take my ministry and God’s call on my life very seriously,” Varnadeau
said. “But, I also love to experience the light-hearted freedom when we
celebrate, rejoice in and delight in Him. God wants us to have an abundant,
joyful life, and I think the songs [on the latest CD] reflect that.”

Varnadeau’s Coffeehouse at Bluefield College will feature a number of
singles from her recent release, “Tracing His Hand,” including the track
“Right Here,” which according to Varnadeau speaks about our relationship
with God.

“We need to be forging a more intimate relationship with God,” she said.
“The more we separate ourselves from the distractions of life, the easier it
is to sense God1s presence and direction.”

From the new CD, Varnadeau will also sing “Adventure with You” (a song
about a Godly marriage) and “Takin1 in the Air” (a retro/disco arrangement
about a mountaintop experience). But, Varnadeau is quick to point out that
the songs she1ll share at BC from the new release are not all about
“mountaintop experiences.”

“We all wish life would be easier,” she said, “but whether we like it or
not Christians are called to struggle and suffer. That1s the process we must
go through, and it1s the hard stuff that refines us and turns us from a lump
of coal into a diamond.”

Varnadeau will also share hits from her first two CDs, including a
number one single and two top ten tunes from “Colors of Truth” and three
additional top ten hits from “No Hesitation.”

The young Christian musician became a Christian at the age of seven. She
dubbed her first music demo tape just before she graduated form high school.
She began her professional music career not long after earning her
bachelor1s degree in commercial music from Belmont University in Nashville,

Her Bluefield College Coffeehouse performance will begin at 9 p.m. in
Shott Hall on Tuesday, September 13. The event is open and free to the
public. For more information, please call the BC Office of Public Relations
at 276-326-4212.
