The Americana acoustic band features the singer-songwriter and fiddler Noah Wall of Oxford, N.C., mandolinist Tommy Norris and guitarist and singer Alex Conerly of Hattiesburg, Miss. Wall and Norris met their senior year of high school and built the band from the ground up during their college careers. Tommy studied classical music and recording engineering at Western Carolina University, while Noah attended East Tennessee State University for its music program. Conerly became the third member in 2013.
With the trio in place, The Barefoot Movement were first runners up at the 2013 Telluride Bluegrass Festival’s New Band Competition. Then in September 2014, The Barefoot Movement received a Momentum Award, naming them “Band of the Year” by the International Bluegrass Music Association. The band has been selected as showcase artists at both the International Bluegrass Music Association and the Americana Festival conferences.
Barefoot Movement also has appeared in Country Weekly Magazine, RollingStone.com, CMT Edge, Music City Roots and Woodsongs Old-Time Radio Hour. Their original music was featured on the Outdoor Channel’s program “Huntin’ the World: Southern Style.”
Barefoot Movement’s latest release is “Live in LA.” It follows two previous full-length releases, an EP and extensive touring of 43 states. The band also has ventured as far away as Africa, where they were guests of the U.S. Embassy in Burkina Faso.
