About The Barefoot Movement
Johnson City's The Barefoot Movement have been making waves in the folk world since the release of their 2011 debut album Footwork.
2013 brings the release of a new album, cross country touring, and all manners of shoeless excitement. Their new effort, "Figures of the Year", comes on the heels of their west coast tour, opening for Anti Records artists The Milk Carton Kids from Denver to San Francisco to Vancouver. The record itself is a journey through a year, each song telling its part of the larger story, with both original and traditional numbers, complete with all the elements that make up the Barefoot sound: lush harmonies, thoughtful instrumentation, and memorable melodies.
From the foot-tapping instrumental "Sheepherder" to the emotional ballad "Thunder" and everything in between, these roots music newcomers have assembled quite the collection here, both old songs and new, offering something for everyone.
