Singer Tim Neufeld of Abbotsford received a Juno Award on Sunday for Contemporary Christian/Gospel Album of the Year.

Neufeld picked up the Canadian music-industry award for his first solo album, Trees.

Neufeld is the former lead singer of the Canadian Christian band Starfield, which itself received four Juno Award nominations, one Western Canadian Music Award and several Gospel Music Association Canada Covenant Awards and Shai Awards.

He formed the band in Winnipeg with his brother Jon, and they released their self-titled debut album in 2004.

The band moved to Abbotsford in fall 2006 after living in Nashville, and they concluded their record deal with EMI/Sparrow in early 2011.

They followed up with an independent record, The Kingdom, in January 2012.

Neufeld, who is married with two young children, launched Trees last June and is currently on a cross-Canada tour.

The 43rd Juno Awards were held Sunday in Winnipeg.
