The Barefoot Movement
Bonfire Music Group recently added the critically-acclaimed Americana, bluegrass, roots, rock-influenced The Barefoot Movement to its roster. The band — Noah Wall, Tommy Norris, Alex Conerly and Katie Blomarz — released its lead single with the label on Nov. 22 titled “Early In The Morning.” It serves as the first track released from their upcoming EP dropping in February 2020. You can listen to it here.
“We are so excited to be collaborating with Bonfire as we prepare to release our forthcoming album,” says The Barefoot Movement in a press release. “At a certain point in an artist’s career, it’s essential to expand their team to allow them more freedom to focus on the music itself. We’re confident that Steve Johnson and his Bonfire colleagues are the team for us and we so look forward to embarking on this partnership.”
The Barefoot Movement’s one-of-a-kind style has already turned heads, the release continues. They are heralded by CMT as “one of the most promising bands.” The Nashville-based group is known for their relaxed approach tackling emotional ballads, roaring barn-burners and everything in-between. This hype has led them to a Momentum Award from the International Bluegrass Music Association (IBMA), being named “Band of the Year” in 2014.
The award-winning band has already built quite a following, resulting in a jam-packed tour schedule. In addition to bringing their unique music to audiences throughout North America, they have also performed shows internationally as well, including a tour in Africa.
