Acclaimed Americana group, The Barefoot Movement, is the brainchild of founding members Noah Wall and Tommy Norris. Emerging on the acoustic scene in 2011, they have continually navigated the alt-bluegrass waters through the years while refining that which gives them their particular sound. Invigorating and infused with a captivating honesty, The Barefoot Movement transports audiences to a place of complete enthrallment. In North Carolina, 2006, front woman Noah Wall met mandolinist Tommy Norris in high school and discovered a convergence of aligned passions. That initial crackle of intensity never waned and instead became the force catalyzing the band through its various iterations. Today, The Barefoot Movement is comprised of Noah Wall—whose powerhouse vocals, songwriting, and fiddle playing serve as the backbone of the band—mandolinist, composer and author, Tommy Norris, and touring guitarist Ben Howington, rounding out their unique blend of charming, modern roots music.
Wheaton ( Lily Burris) and Acelia ( Abbey Eller Glick) come together with just their voices and an acoustic guitar, to create melancholy indie-folk. With a mirage of vastly different musical influences, and an emphasis on lyrics that people can connect to, they create music that inspires introspection, reflection, and emotional release.
